Battered old shoe Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva has been cut from the UFC roster, which shows that the news owners of the organization – WME – have a heart at least.
If you’ll recall, the behemoth Brazilian has lost six of his last eight fights by knockout, and, well, you know how that goes.
There won’t be any “Bigfoot” sightings in the UFC again any time soon.
The promotion released Antonio Silva recently after a rough stretch for the former elite heavyweight, MMA Fighting confirmed with UFC officials Friday. Globo was the first to report the news. Silva had lost three straight, all by knockout
Globo reported that Silva, 37, is already fielding offers from other promotions. “Bigfoot” owns a win over Fedor Emelianenko under the Strikeforce banner in 2011 and the promotion that signs Emelianenko could very well want to put together that rematch.
