World Victory Road on Friday confirmed that Antonio Silva would compete on its Jan. 4 event, Sengoku 7. The EliteXC heavyweight champion is slated to face Yoshihiro Nakao.

The bout will be Silva's first since capturing the EliteXC title with a win over Justin Eilers on July 26. He is currently under suspension in California due to a positive test result for the steroid Boldenone, following the bout with Eilers.

so he loses his license in the US then right, because his year long suspension isn't up yet. Not that it's that huge of a deal, he can make a career fighting in Japan.

He can make money in Japan for sure, but it might burn bridges here in the states.

I agree Silva is going to be a beast overthere. After the way he fought Eilers, I'm more excited for him over there then over here for sure

Yo come on baby just a lil kiss...nah B...yo you gonna give it me...byah!



Should be easy money for Silva. Should be a significant weight and height disadvantage as well as Yoshihiro is 5'10 220lbs. There is always the outside chance of Yoshihiro landing a bomb as he does have pretty heavy hands.

Yoshihiro is pretty well versed in submissions so more than likely I think this ends in a TKO with Antonio pounding from top position.

Antonio should be an instant fan favorite and there's a lot of good fights out there for him.
