“UFC on FX 5: Browne vs. Bigfoot”; Weigh-In Results | UFC NEWS

Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva will enjoy a 20 lbs weight advantage when he collides with 6ft 7inch heavyweight Travis Browne tomorrow night on the stacked UFC on FX card from the Target Center, Minneapolis.

The 6ft 4inch “Bigfoot” used every available pound, hitting the uppermost heavyweight limit of 266 lbs for tomorrow’s five round main event against the undefeated Browne, who scaled 246 lbs. The two goliaths then locked eyes for several intense moments before vowing to win inside the distance tomorrow.

“His size doesn’t matter, I’m a big guy too,” said Browne. “I’ve got to go out there and give my best – because if I do that I know I can finish this fight impressively.”

“I’m ready,” said Silva. “I’m ready to show the entire UFC what I can really do and this fight won’t go more than two rounds.”

The four-fight UFC on FX card will be broadcast live on FX this Friday at 8pm ET/PT, with preliminary fights airing live on FUEL from 5pm ET/2pm PT. A new episode of the Ultimate Fighter will air immediately following UFC on FX.

  2. Jake says:

    I Agree ^^^^ he has a gorilla head haha. Looks like he should be brothers with George Lopez lol

  3. danielrchargers says:

    oh my god Jeremy biggest waste of a contract ( aside from Mckorkle) Stephenson is still in the UFC??????
    this guys is just a younger Phil Baroni the sack of Baloney.
    Lets get a real WW in this card.

  4. Brah what says:

    Yves Edwards vs Jeremy Stephens should be on the main card.yves Edward is an exciting fighter.looking forward to this fight the most!Hope Hawaiian pulls off the win against Big head Silva…

  5. Inyoface says:

    That was an intense staredown

  6. chotaboy says:

    thank u ufc for another free event and a decent card…stephens and edwards should be on main card though

  7. Bruce Lee says:

    I dont know about bigfoot or big head, more like cave man. UFC is soooo simple, even a cave man can do it.

  8. Sonnen is a punk says:

    The guy has a disease give him a break. He would beat all of you at the same time with one hand. He beat Fedor.. Give him some respect.
    Go BIG FOOT!

  9. Bruce Lee says:

    @ sonnen, its called a sense of humor, i hear wal mart is selling them cheap, GO GET ONE!! And i cant call him a cave man but your calling sonnen a punk?

    • Philly says:

      For the record, I don’t think Sonnen is a punk. Just to draw a distinction, however, being a punk has to do with one’s character. You can choose to act like a punk, but Bigfoot’s disorder isn’t something he chose to have.

  10. Josiah says:

    that is one massive head! but he’s still a bjj black belt so brown could be in trouble when he gets taken down. on the other hand, bigger head means a bigger target. the fight can go either way

  11. Xaninho says:

    The head is big, but vulnerable. Browne should use elbows to split it open like Cain did.

  12. magoo says:

    I expect some JBJ like moves from big hapa against Bigfoot, I think Travis will finish the big Brazilian! Ellenberger by shit kicking Herion, Dodson will get his shot at mighty mouse, and Stepens will KO Yves. Not sure about the Castillo/Johnson fight probably a close decision Win for either man.

  13. Aaron says:

    Bigfoot looks like a Cro-Magnon… I’m just saying.
    And he might have the biggest bottom jaw of any person in MMA.
