I really like bigfoot and i was just curious 2 see how the playground thinks he would fare in the ufc.

I would take Cain and Jds over him 4 sure, but other than that im not 2 sure.
I think bigfoot against brock and carwin are toss ups but i actually might favor bigfoot a little in those 2. I think he could handle mir, nelson, and schaub as well.

Curious 2 see your guys feedback, cant wait until the ufc has the strikeforce hw's.

I think he would beat Carwin, Rothwell, Hunt, Schaub, Nelson, Kongo, Barry, & Crocop.
Not sure about Lesnar, Nog & Mir.
Def not on JDS or Cain's level.

I think Bigfoot would be a contender and possible champ, depending who he faces and how he progresses.

Tough question. He's got good size for a HW and it's not like he's really slow and overwhelmed with muscle. Could be a force but I don't see him ever being champ.

I would put him as the fourth best in the ufc if he were there, behind Carwin, Dos Santos, and Velasquez.

Well who is "UFC Elite" thats kinda weird since more top 10s come from SF



Anyway i think he'd beat everyone outside JDS and Cain in zuffa pretty handily

I don't understand when or how Cain became "unbeatable," but I definitely think that Bigfoot could beat Cain on any given night. How many people had him beating Fedor and he pounded Fedor's face into hamburger meat. Silva is a very game opponent with some serious skills. He's got 3 blackbelts and uses them all very well. Not to mention he's absolutely enormous.

I'd give him a shot against anyone in the UFC, Velasquez included.

Big Foot has been sparked out before and rocked a couple times. I'm sure if Carwin lands one of them bombs it's night night.

I think he'd be a contender but I don't see him ever getting a title shot. I think Sergei or Overeem will spark him out of this competition, he better hope Barnett looks old against Rogers or that Rogers pulls the upset.

Silva was the one under hyped fighter out of EliteXC. He's well rounded and he's a legitimate super heavyweight, his biggest flaw is that he sometimes leaves his jaw exposed and that is a big no-no against the top tier fighters. He's capable of beating anybody and is capable of being a champion but I doubt he'll ever put a long winning streak together against top tier talent.

Silva has never truly been Knocked out, and i personally dont think anyone has the power to push that guys chin beyond its limits. Its just too ******* fortified and thick.

I absolutely would take Bigfoot over Lesnar or Carwin. In a heartbeat.

The Mir's, Kongo's, Nogueira's, and Schaub's dont stand a chance IMO

I think the UFC and Strikeforce HW divisions are about equal in talent so I put Bigfoot in there with any top 5 UFC HW holding his own

I'd say top 3-5 easily. I don't see guys like Mir,Carwin,Nelson,Lesnar,or Kongo taking him out but I would like to see him fight a guy like Meathead.

Taking on JDS or Cain would be an interesting challenge for Bigfoot.
I don't think JDS could knock him out fast and I don't know if he could keep bigfoot from taking him down either. Tough one to call but I think JDS would have to keep extremely busy the entire fight. The hard thing about calling fights like this is,we've never really seen JDS or Cain bullied in the cage. We really don't know how they'll fair when they're stuck on the defensive side of things and that could be a huge mental deterrent for any fighter.

I think Bigfoot would do exceptionally well. I think he knows how to use his size to his advantage. We saw this in the fedor and Kyle fight. His striking i think needs some work, but other than that he is very well rounded. I'm also picking him as the winner of the GP. I have a feeling he will knock off Overeem.
