Antonio Silva and Arlovski to headline the UFC Fight Night in Brazil!
A couple of days ago Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva expressed his wish to participate in UFC Fight Night that is to take place September 13 in Brazil. His wish finally came true and he is to step into the octagon in the Brazilian capital. His opponent will be Andrei Arlovski.
Antonio Silva’s wish came true. His opponent will not be Josh Barnett though, but former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski. The two fighters already fought in May 2010 in Stikeforce. Bigfoot won via unanimous decision.
Antonio Silva is still under suspension because of doping but it will expire a couple of days before the event. Silva’s opponent, 35 year old Andrei Arlovski (22-10) returned to the UFC after six years. He did his comeback fight with Brendan Schaub in June and won via split decision.
Silva already announced that he will take a break after the following match to remove the pituitary gland tumor.
