This is just dumb. Why is Bigfoot challenging a guy way smaller than him. It just makes him look bad imo.

Silva used to fight at Shw, and he was a good 315

Discussion over. This is not a man who can healthily make 205, especially with his age.

Ha I'd love to see that fight, if the dehydration didn't kill him, a couple of cheap shots from Thiago might.

I think Thiago at HW against Bigfoot has a solid chance to win by KO and it would be a risk worth taking to further his career. I also think it's lame of the guy who just challenged the HW champ to call out a light heavyweight.

I think Bigfoots bones alone weight 205...not including muscle, skin, etc...

Sometimes I get the feeling that Bigfoot isn't the smartest guy in the world.

A cut to 205?? Big Feet confirms that on my most recent trip to Brasil that Math IS NOT taught in the 'Lord of teh Jungles'
