Antonio Silva Offers Up His UFC 155 Main Event Prediction

Antonio Silva trains with UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos, and has been inside the Octagon with Cain Velasquez.

So, Silva is one of the more knowledgeable sources when it comes to offering up a prediction for the UFC 155 main event between dos Santos and Velasquez.

“I’ve trained with Gypsy (dos Santos) and know it is not easy to put him down, but if he has a very round floor,” said Silva, during an interview with Tatame, a Brazilian news source. “I see more Gypsy getting a knockout.”

Dos Santos stopped Velasquez late in 2011, securing his first UFC title.

Silva was defeated by Velasquez earlier this year, but rebounded to top Travis Browne. He is being rumored for a potential 2013 showdown with Alistair Overeem.
