The news came via Silva himself, who spoke to Brazilian media conglomerate GLOBO, during a visit to the Abu Dhabi Formula 1 Grand Prix racetrack yesterday. Here's what he had to say (translated):
"I'm going to Los Angeles to record a movie with Steven Seagal. I'm very excited about this new phase. I'm preparing. I'm training thanks to Johnny Araujo, who is my supporter. You are helping me a lot."
