Light heavyweight Thiago Silva doesn’t like UFC on Fuel 10 opponent Rafael Cavalcante and isn’t afraid to talk about it. At the root of his issue appears to be a perceived change in Cavalcante’s behavior over the years, going from a peer Silva was friendly with into one who isn’t quite so friendly.

In a recent interview with MMAJunkie, the 14-3 Silva spoke about his fight with “Feijao” where he promised violence.

“If he’s man enough, he’ll meet me in the middle, if not, he can run. Let’s see how he shows up, because he sure is talking a lot.”

“He thinks he’s a superstar now ”“ I tried to be cool with him, to talk to him. Now he’s acting like he doesn’t know me. He thinks he’s a Hollywood celebrity.”

“When I rain down punches on his face, what is he going to do? I never disrespect anyone before a fight, but he’s talking too much. I want to see what he does when I slap him around like Brandon Vera.”
