It appears that ANTONIO ‘BIGFOOT’ SILVA career in the UFC has come to a close.
Silva last fought in September at UFC Fight Night 95 where he was beaten and the fight was over in the second round by Roy Nelson. The match marked the final one of his contract and according to a report on MMAJunkie, “Bigfoot” and the Ultimate Fighting Championship (current odds) mutually agreed to go their separate ways.
Silva lost five times in his last six matches inside the Octagon and his loss to “Big Country” was his third consecutive setback.
Silva’s manager, Alex Davis, told MMAjunkie that if his client was no longer with the UFC he would look at what options may arise overseas.
“I think ‘Bigfoot’ will probably be out of the UFC and probably go to Rizin (FF) or Russia,” Davis said.
