Cain Velasquez has been inside the Octagon twice with Antonio “Big Foot” Silva and the ending never changed. Each fight didn’t escape the opening round as Velasquez emerged the victor.
Now, Silva has some advice for those who are looking to stop the UFC heavyweight champion.
“Pressure him,” said Silva to Sherdog. “Don’t put the back on the cage or fight the wrestling skills. Kick him and use a lot of knees. Try to put him on the ground because nobody knows how he’s going to be on the ground.”
Silva never mounted any offense against Velasquez. He returns at UFC Fight Night 33 against Mark Hunt. It will be Hunt’s return following a defeat to Junior dos Santos and a leg infection.
UFC Fight Night 33 is December 7 and comes from Australia’s Brisbane Entertainment Centre.
