Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva set to debut against Cain Velasquez in April

Quote:
Rodrigo Minotauro revelou neste sábado, em sua coluna semanal no jornal carioca Extra, que Antônio Pezão está próximo do acerto com o UFC. A estreia seria no mês de abril, em evento a confirmar. O adversário seria ninguém menos que Cain Velasquez, ex-campeão dos pesados e que acabou de perder seu cinturão para Júnior Cigano, em novembro.



Pezão não luta desde setembro, quando foi nocauteado por Daniel Cormier na semifinal do GP do Strikeforce. O atleta da Team Nogueira deve seguir o caminho natural de alguns dos peso pesados do Strikeforce, já que o evento comprado pelo UFC extinguirá a categoria dos pesados ao fim do GP. Foi o que aconteceu com o amigo de Pezão, Fabricio Werdum, que confirmou sua volta ao Ultimate em fevereiro, contra o gordinho Roy Nelson. O gigante brasileiro foi submetido a uma artroscopia no ombro, em novembro, mas já retornou aos treinos.



Procurado pelo PVT, Alex Davis, empresário de Pezão, praticamente confirmou a data, mas não o oponente: "Estamos quase certos para a estreia do Pezão em abril, mas não podemos confirmar o adversário. Cain Velasquez apenas está na lista. Pezão luta com quem vier. Pode colocar Overeem, Lesnar, Velasquez, quem for. Ele só não luta contra Minotauro e Cigano", disse Alex, que brincou quando soube que o "furo" foi dado por Minotauro: "Pô, vou ter que enfiar a porrada nele!", disse, aos risos.

THE opponent would be none other than Cain Velasquez, former champion of the heavy and it has just lost his belt for Junior Gypsy in November. Pezao not fight since September, when he was knocked out by Daniel Cormier in the semifinal of the GP of Depleted Strikeforce.
Cain will absolutely kill him.

Good "gimmie" fight for Cain, and good opportunity for Silva. Everyone wins.

Cain is going to maul Bigfoot, and I can't wait. Captain Mexico is going to be back with a vengeance.

Agree with the general sentiment of this thread, Cain will takedown and maul Sasquatch. Even standing he has a huge edge. Good fight though.

I think Cain wins all day. But I like this fight. Makes sense.

Thinking a little too far ahead, but say Bigfoot loses, I like the idea of Bigfoot/Kongo. And for Cain I like the idea or Cain/ winner of Roy/Werdum.

HW is a lot more fun with these in coming HWs.

wow thought Mir would get Velasquez next. Bigfoot is strong, but slow and can see Cain finishing this within the distance. Tough way to be greeted into the UFC. Who did Bigfoot piss off?

I love the way the UFC gives extremely tough fights for newcomers. Welcome to the UFC - trial by fire.

Pepi vs Thiago Alves
Jake Shields vs Kampmann

Kid Yamamoto vs Mighty Mouse
Fireball Kid vs Kenflo

Nick Diaz vs BJ Penn/GSP

Brock vs Mir (I actually picked Brock to win the first time around. Ironically I think that version of Brock "might" have beat Overeem back in Dec. 30th even though I picked "The Reem" to win. If anybody wants to debate it let me know.)

Overeem vs Brock (don't tell me you knew 100% that Overeem was going to win. I picked Overeem, but even I was unsure.)

Big Silva vs Cain...haha. It should be a very good fight. This aint a gimme at all for either.

Its a contract negotiation fight, He wins he gets good money, loses and gets shit money. Happens to most newcomers who think they are worth more than the UFC wants to pay them.

This should be a good fight. Bigfoot needs to take advantage of Cain's glass jaw.
