Paulo César da Silva (born July 21, 1963) is a Brazilian mixed martial artist and professional wrestler, better known by his ring name, Giant Silva.


Very much like El Gigante/Giant Gonzales years earlier, Silva was originally an amateur basketball player.

World Wrestling Entertainment

He came to WWE on the May 25, 1998 episode of Raw is War. He may be best remembered for his stint as "Giant Silva", a member of the "Oddities" stable, although he also competed for CMLL in Mexico as Gigante Silva. Silva has since been paired with Dalip Singh as a tag team in All Japan Pro Wrestling. In WWF, although often featured at ringside during Oddities matches, he never really wrestled that often.

PRIDE Fighting Championship

Silva also competes in PRIDE Fighting Championships, a mixed martial arts organization based in Japan.Silva at one time did train with members of the Gracie family, most notably Ricardo Gracie. On December 31, 2006 Giant Silva defeated former Yokozuna Akebono by kimura in the first round at K-1 Dynamite 2006 for his second win of his career giving him a professional record of 2 wins and 6 losses overall spanning both PRIDE FC and K-1.

The best K-1 community online!

The focus is on building a community that offers more to the users than any other K-1 website. The focus is also on that the community should be totally user driven, with the users as main writers of content. Who would for example write a better fight report than a fan who actually was at the fight? Or who could write a more interesting fighter profile than the fan who loves and really knows about a fighter? We believe that this approach will lead to that fansofk1.com has the most interesting K-1 information.
