Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva underwent surgery to remove a pituitary gland following his recent loss to Andrei Arlovski.

Silva posted on Instagram “my surgery was a success, i’ll be back soon.Thank you to everyone who sent me their positive thoughts and energy.”

The Brazilian was previously suspended for a failed post-fight drug test that showed elevated levels of testosterone. Silva, who turned 35 years old earlier this month, is 0-2 with one no-contest since knocking out Alistair Overeem in 2013.
