Default UFC 162 Update: Rafael ‘Feijao’ Cavalcante vs. Thiago Silva Added to Fight Card

Former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] will finally make his way to the Octagon at UFC 162 when he squares off with fellow Brazilian [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].
The bout has been verbally agreed to according to MMAWeekly.com sources. The rumored bout was first reported by [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].
Feijao (11-3) had a strong run in Strikeforce, accumulating a 4-2 record. He defeated Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal for the 205-pound title, but then lost it to former Pride champion [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].
Feijao bounced back with victories over Yoel Romero and Mike Kyle. The California State Athletic Commission later changed the win over Kyle to a no contest after Feijao tested positive for Stanozolol, an anabolic steroid.
He was fined $2,500 and suspended for one year following a controversial commission hearing. The suspension concludes on May 19.
Silva (14-3) is also entering this fight coming off of a suspension.
He had his submission victory over Stanislav Nedkov at UFC on Fuel TV 6 changed to a no contest and he was suspended for six months after testing positive for marijuana metabolites following the fight. His suspension runs its course on May 10.
Silva’s job is likely on the line with this fight. He is 1-3 with 2 no contests in his last six fights in the UFC. Aside from the suspension following the Nedkov fight, Silva also had a unanimous decision over Brandon Vera changed to a no contest after his post-fight drug test sample was determined to be a sample “inconsistent with human urine.” He admitted to using a urine adulterant to mask injections that he took prior to the fight to alleviate pain in his injured back.

Should be Fun

Hopefully Feijao can put him away.
