XFCi 10 Will Host Missael Silva in the Season II Featherweight Semifinals | XFC Spotlight
Entering his eighth year as a professional, Missael Silva finds himself in the XFC Season II Featherweight Semifinal round after a 30-27 unanimous decision victory at XFCi 8. With the win over Paata Robakidze, the 30 year old fighter is now preparing for his semifinal bout against fellow countrymen Pedro Falcao at XFCi 10. The 10-3 “Missa” will look to his past experiences within the heXagon as he enters training camp for his upcoming semifinal fight.
Missael Silva, who lives in Bauru SP, Brazil with his wife and daughter began his professional career in 2007, winning his first five bouts. The member of team Corinthians MMA holds a black belt in Jiu-Jitsu, which he began to train in after a friend invited him to try back in 2005. Now, the professional fighter trains three times a day while in camp, staying motivated by his family who have supported him fully in his career. With a strong family mentality, “Missa” fights to provide them the best lifestyle possible.
Missael Silva expressed that he is doing what he loves every day as a professional fighter and, with that, he reflected on some of his most memorable and difficult memories thus far. He stated the day his daughter was born and the signing of his XFC contract were two of the best memories… the worst being born so ugly, he jokingly replied. With a quality sense of humor and pride for his profession and family, Silva is a true XFC warrior that is one fight away from the chance at capturing Season II Tournament Championship Gold.
As XFCi 10 nears closer and closer, “Missa” will continue his strict regimen, which includes a heavy dose of family-time and Jiu-Jitsu. The fighter who has a well balanced talent, features 4 victories by submission and 3 by way of KO/TKO thus far. The 5’9” Silva will enter the heXagon at XFCi 10 with the goal to reach the Season II Featherweight Finale.
