Former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Rafael Cavalcante recently decided to leave the UFC in favor of free agency. No longer with the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) or under the testing of USADA, the former champion is now looking larger than Brock Lesnar himself.
Former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar gained a reputation as being one of the largest competitors to grace the octagon, as the WWE superstar often made short work of his opponents with his gruesome ground and pound.
However, former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva recently took to Instagram to share a photo of himself with his teammate Rafael Cavalcante. Cavalcante is looking larger than ever, perhaps even bulkier than the former UFC heavyweight champion.
Over Instagram, Silva stated:
“Brother, congratulations on your victory. Good to have you back, your talent with your willpower, makes you one of the most dangerous guys in the category. Congratulations again for the victory, I’m very happy to have you back winning. . God bless #TeamNogueira forever!”
