Review: 2013-12-07, there is a good news and a bad news…we start with the good one: the second part of Silva vs Hunt was simply amazing, one of toughest battle ever, everything you could want from a candidate for Fight of the Year! But now the bad news: we usually rate the complete fight and the first part was not so exciting with both fighters throwing just a few shots and in such cases we can’t give more than four stars; Antonio Silva and Mark Hunt were awarded “UFC Fight of the Night” honors. Antonio ‘Bigfoot’ Silva (18-5-0, 89% finishing rate) entered as the No.4 heavyweight in the world while Mark Hunt (9-8-0, 67% ko/tko victory rate – he has never won by submission) entered as the No.9 (currently the #1 in this weight division is Cain Velasquez). ‘Bigfoot’ Silva vs Hunt is the main event of UFC Fight Night 33; they also faced each other a second time on November 15, 2015 (=Mark Hunt vs Antonio Silva 2).

Review: 2013-05-25, pretty good fight between Cain Velasquez and Antonio ‘Pezao’ Silva but it is not enough to get three stars. Cain Velasquez (11-1-0, 82% finishing rate – curiously he has never won by submission) entered as the No.1 heavyweight in the world while Antonio ‘Bigfoot’ Silva (18-4-0, 89% finishing rate) entered as the No.4. In their first fight Velasquez defeated ‘Bigfoot’ Silva by TKO in the first round (May 26, 2012); this second fight is valid for the UFC heavyweight title, main event of UFC 160. Watch the video!

Review: 2012-10-05, pretty good fight between Travis Browne and Antonio Silva but it is not enough to get three stars. The undefeated Travis Browne (13-0-1) entered as the No.13 heavyweight in the world while Antonio ‘Bigfoot’ Silva (16-4-0) entered as the No.7. Browne vs ‘Bigfoot’ Silva is the main event of UFC on FX 5. Watch the video!
Review: 2012-05-26, blood fight with some nice elbows but it is not enough to get three stars: Cain Velasquez vs Antonio Silva ended by TKO in the first round. Cain Velasquez (9-1-0) entered as the No.3 heavyweight in the world while Antonio “Big Foot” Silva (16-3-0) entered as the No.7.

Review: 2011-09-10, nice fight and nice knockout between Antonio Silva and Daniel Cormier (Silva entered as the No.8 heavyweight in the world). Along with Barnett vs Kharitonov, the fight Antonio Silva vs Cormier was valid as semifinal of the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix. Watch the video!
Review: Antonio Silva vs Fedor Emelianenko has been a good fight as everyone expected. Fedor have not fight for almost eight months (when he was defeated for the first time by Fabricio Werdum) and Strikeforce World Heavyweight Grand Prix tournament seemed the way to redeem himself and maybe find Werdum another time. But Fedor Emelianenko had to fight versus Antonio Bigfoot Silva, Brazilian fighter with a powerful physique and just two defeats, one with Pele and the other with Fabricio Werdum (unanimous decision). The first round between Fedor vs Silva is won by Emelianenko that seems to keep control of the fight, but in the second round Silva takes courage and brings to the ground Fedor that suffer the actions of the Brazilian throughout the round. The signs on the face of Fedor Emelianenko are obvious, so the doctor stopped the fight. Strikeforce World Heavyweight Grand Prix Tournament loses its main fighter and, as declared after the fight, this could have been the last cage fight of the great Fedor Emelianenko. Antonio Silva vs Fedor Emelianenko could enter in the history of MMA, a fight nice to see, very technical for the division of the two fighters. Watch the video!
