‘Bigfoot’ Silva has put on 17 pounds since weigh-ins
In case you forgot why he’s called ‘Bigfoot,’ here’s a hefty reminder.
Antonio Silva, who meets Mark Hunt in the UFC Fight Night main event Friday night in Australia, posted a photo on his Instagram earlier in the day of himself on the scale - weighing 282 pounds.
Now, of course, the heavyweight maximum in the UFC is 265, so he’s put on 17 pounds since Thursday night. Goodness. That is either one large man or 2 1/2 Demetrious ‘Mighty Mouse’ Johnson’s. And Silva wrote in the caption that he still has three more pounds to go.
If his size isn’t frightening enough, take a look at those feet. People have been looking for Bigfoot or Sasquatch of the Yeti - whatever you want to call it - for generations. Well, just watch Fox Sports 1 on Friday night and you’ll see him trying to submit Hunt in Brisbane.
