The two have trained together for years and Silva credits Nogueira with saving his career after he left Chute Boxe and had been cut by the Pride organization.

Nogueira had a back and forth fight with Herman before submitting him in the second round. Herman had bragged that "jiu-jitsu doesn't work on me" so Nogueira's win had an element of poetic justice. Nogueira lost his last bout to Frank Mir when Mir broke his right arm with a kimura.

Silva taunted Bonnar in their fight, standing with his back to the cage and letting Bonnar tee off before finally finishing him with a knee to the mid-section.
