Antonio Bigfoot Silva will be making his UFC return in September against Andrei Arlovski in his native country of Brazil. Bigfoot spoke with MMAFighting.com about the fight and how this time around, he wants to finish Arlovski.
We fought once and we know what we can do, but we fought four years ago and I changed my game a lot since,” Silva told MMAFighting.com. “I was too anxious in that fight. It was the second time I was fighting a well-known fighter, after Ricco Rodriguez, so I wanted the win no matter what. I tried to finish him but I couldn’t. I’m sure that it’s going to be different this time.”
“I will do everything I can to finish him,” he added. “I don’t like to let the fight go to a decision, we never know what the judges are going to do. My goal is to end it as soon as possible, but I will be ready for five rounds. I will try to submit or knock him out all the time. Arlovski deserves respect, but I only care about myself.”
