GLORY 11: Daniel Ghita promises Anderson Silva 'much pain' on Oct. 12 in Chicago

Fresh off his violent finish over Brice Guidon in New York, top heavyweight kickboxer Daniel Ghita looks to score back-to-back wins -- as well as a boatload of cash -- by turning away Anderson Silva and Gokhan Saki at GLORY 11 later this month in Chicago.

"You know Daniel Ghita? This guy is going to be the winner of this tournament. I'm going to fight at GLORY 11 against Anderson 'Braddock' Silva. I cannot underestimate Silva, but nobody can stop me. You think I'm going to say what I'll do? No! What is the gameplan? Simple. In America, it's going to happen different. I want to prove myself. Saki is the underdog. He won the battle, but I will win the war. Saki, after this gala at GLORY 11, you are going to be depressed. Anderson Silva, I hope you train very well because if you don't, you are going to have much pain."

Former K-1 star and It's Showtime Champion Daniel Ghita is preparing to make his Spike TV debut against Anderson Silva (the other one) as part of the GLORY 11: "Chicago" heavyweight kickboxing tournament on Oct. 12, 2013 from the Sears Centre Arena in Hoffman Estates, Illinois. If "The Savage Samurai" can make "Braddock" missing in action, he will advance to the final to meet the winner of Gökhan Saki vs. Rico Verhoeven. Ghita, who was stopped by "The Rebel" earlier this year at GLORY 6 in Istanbul, Turkey, would love to avenge that loss -- and cash a $250,000 tournament check in the process. Anyone think he gets it done in the outskirts of "Windy City?"
