After taking home his first UFC win, Antonio Bigfoot Silva (17-4) looks for a rematch against his earlier loss to Cain Velasquez (10-1).
“I do not want some challenging opponents,” said Silva to TATAME. “I want to fight whoever the UFC decides. But I want to fight Cain Velasquez again because that fight was over very quickly because of the cut on my eyebrow. I want another chance to fight him one day.”
Velasquez defeated Silva earlier this year after cutting him above the eye in the opening minutes of their fight.
Silva’s next opponent hasn’t been announced after he defeated Travis Browne (13-1-1) via TKO in round one at UFC on FX 5. Velasquez returns to action at UFC 155 to challenge for the heavyweight title in the company’s final show of the year.
