Bigfoot vs. The Pitbull – Ultimate Fight Night Brazil September
Bigfoot vs. The Pitbull – UFN Brazil September
It is a battle of the big boys between #4 UFC ranked heavyweight Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva and #14 Andrei “The Pitbull” Arlovski.
Silva (18-5-1) last fought in a memorable clash against Mark Hunt back in December in a fight that ended in a draw. Arlovski (22-10, 1 NC) made a successful return to the UFC in June defeating Brendan Schaub in a close split-decision.
Arlovski will look to get even with Silva. Back in 2010 in Strikeforce, Silva defeated Arlovski via decision.
These were dark times for the Belarus native, as Arlovski was in the middle of a four-fight losing streak.
Silva was in the midst of a war of words with fellow UFC heavyweight Josh Barnett before coming into agreement to fight Arlovski.
