Big Foot Silva Wants to Send Brock Lesnar Back to Pro Wrestling

Antonio Big Foot Silva took another shot at Brock Lesnar, and this was a powerful one. Following Zuffa (the UFC’s) purchase of Strikeforce, Strikeforce heavyweight contender Big Foot Silva told MMA Junkie he was looking forward to potentially competing in the UFC. Specifically, he said he was looking forward to whooping former wrestler Brock Lesnar.

“I’d love to fight Brock Lesnar and send him back to pro wrestling” Silva told MMA Junkie. “I don’t accept the fact that [he's] ranked No. 2. It’s not personal; I don’t know Brock. It’s just professional.”

Bloody Elbow points out this isn’t the first time Silva has taken in a run at Lesnar. Back in November, he called Brock a “fake fighter” and said he was inferior to several other fighters.

Lesnar’s next fight in the Octagon will be against Junior Dos Santos, but if he comes away victorious I’d love to see him in the ring with the monstrous Brazilian. Hey, Big Foot’s coming off a pounding of Fedor Emelianenko. Show me a win Lesnar has that’s more impressive.

    Love it! Bigfoot vs Brock. Overeem vs Brock. Werdum vs Brock. Sergei vs Brock or Barnett. I would watch any of those fights!

    It’s genius if you think about it. Silva calling out the former UFC HW Champ right after Zuffa buys Strikeforce.

    The guy comes off the biggest win of his career against Fedor, which that alone should guarantee him a spot if the two companies were to merge into one, but calling out Brock builds some hype around the two potentially fighting.

    It’s a smart move.
