Bigfoot Silva Compliments Dos Santos BJJ Skills

By Jamie McAllister
Antonio Silva in an interview with TATAME.

Bigfoot comments on Junior Dos Santos vs. Frank Mir & compliments Junior’s Jiu-Jitsu skills.

“It’s complicated. (Nogueira and Mir) fought twice and unfortunately Mir won them both, but he shouldn’t take it personally because when you put your emotions in there it’s when you get off track. I’m sure he’s not taking this personally”

“After two, three rounds Mir will get frustrated and won’t handle it well.”

“I’d say Cigano’s a brown or black belt at Jiu-Jitsu, absolutely. He’s very good, fast, versatile and doesn’t get stuck on the positions, he can move fast and stand-up quickly. He’s on a good moment of his career. Every time he’s in Rio he trains much Jiu-Jitsu. Because he knocks many guys out people start thinking he’s just good at that.”
