- For Camoes, the ideal situation would be for Silva’s “super-fight” to take place in Rio de Janeiro after the COVID-19 pandemic. He didn’t mention any names, but “The Spider” was previously linked to a fight with retired UFC star Conor McGregor.
- Silva had a dominant seven-year run as the UFC middleweight champion, beginning in 2006. But after his two losses to Chris Weidman in 2013, he was no longer able to get his elite status back.
- The last time Silva tasted victory was in 2017 when he defeated top-ten contender Derek Brunson. He is currently on a two-fight losing streak.
- Silva is slated to face the flashy Uriah Hall on Halloween night, a fight initially declared by the UFC brass to be his last.
