Former Teammates, Silva & Silva Want To Fight Each other

June 10, 2013 10:23 am by BJPENN.COM News

Antonio “Bigfoot Silva and Thiago Silva both used to hail from Florida’s American Top Team.

Nowadays, the lighter Silva trains with the ever-growing “Blackzilians” team on the other side of town.

For some reason, “Bigfoot” called out his former teammate after his successful UFC on FUEL TV bout this past weekend.

“Thiago weighs 105 kilograms (231.5 pounds). We have a debt to settle,” said Bigfoot. “He could accept me first fight at heavyweight.”

Thiago Silva responded, but stated if the big man wants a fight, he needs to shed some pound.

“He must be sad because I left American Top Team,” said Thiago. “If he wants to fight me, he has to come down to 205 (pounds); that’s it.”
