Bigfoot Silva On Velasquez | "I would rather fight him on the ground."

By Jamie McAllister
Antonio Silva in an interview with TATAME.

Bigfoot comments on making his UFC debut.

“I am crazy to get this fight done. Get in that cage and have my UFC debut. I am feeling like if it was the first fight of my life. I guess I’m starting it all over again, from nothing. It’s a big opportunity on my personal and professional life.”

Bigfoot comments on where he thinks the fight will go.

“I am comfortable on the stand-up. It’s not because I made a mistake last time I’ll try to change or don’t believe in myself. I know I can do it. I would rather fight him on the ground. If he wants to take me down, I’m not going to spend much energy trying to hold him back.”

Bigfoot comments on previously facing fighters out of the AKA gym.

“See, I fought two AKA guys: Mike Kyle and Daniel Cormier. I guess that he can get some tips from Mike Kyle, because I fought him longer, it went to round two. Daniel, unfortunately for me and happily for him, no, because I got punched at 30 seconds and then I wasn’t myself any more.”
