He may have been cut by the UFC, but human punching bag Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva already has more work lined up. His new employer: some fly-by-night Russian MMA organization that doesn’t care (or maybe even likes) that he has no chin anymore.
MMAJunkie has the news:
MMAjunkie today confirmed with Silva’s manager, Alex Davis, that “Bigfoot” will compete in the main event of an upcoming Titov Boxing Promotion event on Nov. 18 in Yekaterinburg, Russia.
Silva (19-10-1) will take on Russian Ivan Shtyrkov (4-0).
“We are very excited for the new opportunity,” Davis said. “‘Bigfoot’ was already in the gym today, preparing for the fight against Shtyrkov.
“Russia has become a big hub of the MMA world, and we are thrilled to be a part of it.”
