Next Saturday at WFS 4 Vitor Silva takes on Huseyin Garabet in a featherweight bout. Before that Kingdom MMA caught up with him to find out a bit more about the man nicknamed Vendetta as well as his thoughts on the upcoming fight.
Firstly tell us and everyone who will be reading this a bit about yourself: name, fight name, age, height, record, gym etc?
I am Vitor "VENDETTA" Silva and I am 29 years old. I have a 1-4-0 record, am 5'8 tall and train with Team Vengeance MMA.
How is your camp going for your fight at WFS 4 next weekend?
Training is going great, I cant complain. I have got great coaches and a wicked team helping me prepare for this bout. “If you train right, then you never doubt yourself”.
You are taking on Huseyin Garabet, what do you know about him?
I just want to fight and progress and am not bothered about records. I haven’t even looked Garabet up, obviously my coach has. I am at stage where I’ll fight anyone in the UK in my weight class as I’m looking at the bigger picture.
Are you focussing on anything in particular for this bout?
Yeah, finishing quick so I can go PARTY LIKE A BOSS!!
What did you learn in your last fight?
I have improved bit by bit and met some great friends and had highs and lows like all fighters.
This show is at the York Hall in London, does that add any pressure knowing the calibre of fighter that has fought there in the past?
I have fought under pressure many times before and being able to fight at WFS only makes me more happy.
WFS is a relatively new promotion only three shows deep, what do you know about them, and what do you think of what they've done so far?
It’s a great show and my team are great fans. It's well organised, never any trouble and I’m sure you’ll see more of our fighters on the promotion. It’s great to have good relationship between coaches and the promoters – there is too much bum licking and cherry picking for tickets sales on other shows, we were looking for something good and are grateful for the opportunity.
If you win your fight on August 1st, what is the next step in the short and long term future?
Go on holiday with my beautiful misses and chill then off to brazil for a looong training holiday.
Do you have any final words for your opponent?
Yeah, once we are in that cage lets give the crowd what they came for... A WAR!
Are there any people you'd like to thank?
Team Vengeance who are with me all the way, all my fans, my girlfriend and family who have been supporting me from day one, all my friends, my coaches Lee Follen and Daniel Movahedi and my manager Leo Alderman.
