UFC’s heavyweight division is big, but they could have even more, and I’m sure Bigfoot will be in the UFC real soon” TATAME

According to his manager, Alex Davis, Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva may find himself pretty soon inside the UFC Octagon. Bigfoot was TKO’d by Daniel Cormier in the semi-final of Strikeforce Heavyweight GP, in what was his first defeat since the encounter with Fabricio Werdum back in 2009. Despite losing to Cormier, Bigfoot is still considered by many as one of the best Heavyweights on the planet. Former Interim UFC Heavyweight Champion Shane Carwin could be a perfect opponent for Bigfoot in the UFC, for a clash of fighters who need to cut weight to fit into the 265lbs limit.
