Silva had his last MMA fight against Russian Oleg Popov in June of this year in the MMA Series 53 tournament. In that encounter, “Bigfoot” was defeated by a knockout in the second round. He then competed in boxing against Vyacheslav Datsik where the fight was stopped just 44 seconds into round two. ‘Bigfoot’ has 19 wins, 14 losses and one draw under his belt.
Gozali’s last fight took place at middleweight which means there will be a huge weight discrepancy between the two competitors. The last time Gozali tasted defeated was in 2018 to Ryan Couture at Bellator 209.
