Antonio “Big Foot” Silva not coming to win a decision against Fedor Emelianenko

Strikeforce heavyweight contender, Antonio “Big Foot” Silva is putting in the work, training very hard in preparation for his fight with formerly ranked number one fighter on the planet, Fedor Emelianenko, adding he’s not coming to win via decision either.

Silva’s manager, speaking via Tatame Magazine, said:

“We were thinking about this fight for a long time, and Big Foot is preparing himself for it. It’ll be, when it happens, the greatest fight in his career. It’s a hard fight for anyone, Fedor is a legend, and he deserves to be to known as one. I think this bout will happen, that’s our hope. If you want to be the best, you have to test yourself with the bests. We’re just waiting the guys from Strikeforce to call us, he’ll give a great show for you, as usual.”

“I believe on Big foot a lot. I think that, on Werdum’s fight, Fedor made a little mistake, which Werdum used wisely to beat him. He’s much more prepared now… On Big Foot’s case, I hope he can really beat that guy up. Big Foot has plenty conditions to do it, he proved it on his last couple of fights, and on the last one he proved how brave he is when he’s in trouble.”
