Antonio “Big Foot” Silva excited for UFC/Strikeforce merger, eyes future fight with Brock Lesnar

Another competitor from the Strikeforce World Grand Prix Heavyweight Tournament has spoken out on the recent news that the California based promotion has been purchased by Zuffa LLC., Antonio “Big Foot” Silva says he’s never had issue with the UFC and he’d love to step inside the octagon with former UFC heavyweight champion, Brock Lesnar.

Silva, speaking via Tatame Magazine, said:

“It’ll be very good, I’m looking forwards to know how it’ll be like. I’ve never had issues with anybody, I’ve always respected everybody, but as a professional I believe it’d be interesting fighting Brock Lesnar. I don’t agree that Brock is the second on the ranking, it doesn’t make sense. This fight would be interesting so I put Brock on the place where he was supposed to be… It really doesn’t make any sense.”
