Thiago is essentially a SWAT team member in Brazil so that in itself is impressive on the fear front. He’s well-versed in hand-to-hand combat and weaponry. Throw in the fact he’s got an unforgiving face and you’ve got an excellent candidate for soiling an unlucky individual’s shorts if ever on Silva’s wrong side.
With Halloween only a few days away, the spirit of the season is in full swing. Costumes have been purchased, parties are planned, and horror movies abound. We here at Fightline love the festivities as much as anyone else, making sure to take full advantage of the holiday to produce a list of the most frightening fighters to call the UFC home. Spots were determined by a number of factors including past performances, behavior outside of the Octagon, and physical appearance. (Photos by USA Today Sports Images)
