Anderson "Braddock" Silva often finds himself being mixed up with the UFC's Anderson Silva, but in May at K-1 when he pushed Badr Hari to the limit, he definitely opened some eyes. Silva had planned on fighting for K-1 before the purchase of It's Showtime by GLORY, but now it looks like he won't be doing that.
GLORY today announced that they have signed Anderson "Braddock" Silva. There aren't any other details or known dates when he'll be fighting, but he's been pencilied in for It's Showtime's November 10 event in Brazil for some time now, and the event is going ahead.
What this shows is that some of the fighters that were supposed to be fighting in K-1 before the big acquisition can switch over to GLORY, much like Silva has done now.
This is a good signing by GLORY though, as it's important to bolster their roster at heavyweight. Silva can also fight at 95kg if need be, and he's even expressed interest in fighting MMA in the future, which GLORY does have.
