‘Bigfoot’ Silva Announces MMA Return


Former UFC heavyweight title challenger Antônio ‘Bigfoot’ Silva will look to win his first MMA fight in seven years.

Silva, at 43 years old, made his professional MMA debut in March 2005. Stints in Strikeforce and Elite XC led him to the UFC, with wins over the likes of Alistair Overeem, Travis Browne, and Soa Palelei.

Silva was supposed to return to MMA earlier this year at Eagle FC 44, before withdrawing from a main event slot against Tyrone Spong. He was replaced by Sergei Kharitonov, who went on to pick up the victory.
