Matched against Movsar Evloev
January 29, 2020
Silva de Andrade will take on Movsar Evloev at UFC 248 in Las Vegas on March 7, reports.
Both fighters are coming off unanimous decision victories, with Silva de Andrade beating Renan Barao in November and Evloev beating Enrique Barzola in October. For Silva de Andrade, that brought his UFC record to 4-3, while Evloev has yet to lose in his two UFC matches.
Easily decisions Renan Barao
November 16, 2019
Silva de Andrade defeated Renan Barao via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-26) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
While a win over Barao means less than nothing in 2019, Silva de Andrade deserves credit for going out and handling his business in a fight in which he had nothing to gain and everything to lose. Facing a washed up opponent whose best days have long since passed, Silva de Andrade landed the much more impactful, cleaner strikes. Barao was unable to make him the massive power differential between the two men. Silva de Andrade is in a tough spot moving forward. He's a very good fighter and has more ability than his 4-3 record with the UFC would lead you to believe, but he's 34 years old and has struggled whenever tasked with facing better competition. It will be interesting to see who the UFC matches him up against moving forward.
Added to Sao Paulo card
October 2, 2019
Silva de Andrade will go up against Renan Barao in a featherweight fight at UFC Sao Paolo on Nov 16, Farah Hannoun of MMA Junkie reports.
The bout puts two former bantamweight fighters up against each other, but both will be moving up to featherweight for the November bout. Silva de Andrade has dropped two of his last three fights in the octagon, with his most recent loss coming via TKO against Petr Yan at UFC 232. That led to a number of medical suspensions, but it looks like the 34-year-old from Brazil is back healthy and ready to fight again.

He'll face 30 days without contact and 45 days no contest, as well as a 60-day suspension for a left-eye laceration and a 180-day suspension for possible fractures.
