10 Light Heavyweight Prospects the UFC Should Sign in 2021

Joshua DaSilveira

27 | 6’1″ | Miami, Florida, US | 3-0 | 100% finish rate | 1 KO/TKO, 2 Submissions (Arm-Triangle, RNC) | Combined Opponents’ Record: 4-5 | Best Win – Jahsua Marsh (3-4) 

DaSilveira is someone I’d imagine could get another win or two and then go on Dana White’s Ccontender Series in the Summer. Living in Coconut Creek, Florida he trains out of American Top Team under head coach and his father Conan Silveira. He’s only 3-0 but went 4-0 as an amateur so he does have experience. Not high-level experience but in the gym every day with some of the best at ATT.

Silveira wrestled in College for Arizona State University and was a Florida high school state champ. With that wrestling pedigree always in his back pocket, he’s able to let loose on the feet. His shot-selection is very on-point with his hands and his left high kick is very sneaky and dangerous. Silveira really checks all the boxes and is a major prospect.
