Antonio “Big Foot” Silva: “I’m happy to hear these rumors. After all, who wouldn’t want to fight Fedor”

Strikeforce heavyweight contender, Antonio “Big Foot” Silva is very happy to hear the rumours that he’ll be facing former “pound for pound” king, Fedor Emelianenko early in 2011.

Siva, speaking via MMAJunkie.com, said:

“I’m happy to hear these rumors. After all, who wouldn’t want to fight Fedor, a living legend in the sport?”

“He [Werdum] already showed the hole in [Emelianenko’s] game, but until you get to the ground, it’s a long [fight] since it starts standing up. I’m going to train my hands, my wrestling and my jiu jitsu for him.”
