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.
