Antonio “Big Foot” Silva: “If I could pick out of everybody, I’d like to face Josh Barnett”

Strikeforce heavyweight contender, Antonio “Big Foot” Silva has revealed in he could pick, who he would love to face, and that being former UFC champion, Josh Barnett, labelling him “arrogant” and saying the American has rubbed him wrong way.

Silva, speaking via Sports Illustrated, said:

“If I could pick out of everybody, I’d like to face Josh Barnett. He rubbed me the wrong way. He doesn’t talk to people. He’s a little bit arrogant; he never says, ‘Hi,’ never shakes a hand. I think that even though we’re fighters and fighting each other, we need to be friendly with each other. (Andrei) Arlovski’s the same way, but he’s already taken care of.”
