Antonio Silva is looking to snap a four-fight losing skid, and he's cleared to go on testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) once again.

“Bigfoot", one of the few UFC fighters allowed to go on TRT before the treatment was banned by the Nevada Athletic Commission, is set to meet former Bellator heavyweight champion Vitaly Minakov at Fight Nights Global, scheduled for June 2 in St. Petersburg, Russia.

YAS!! Finally get to see the Bigfoot of old, assuming he hasn't missed a step in the last couple of years. Ususally HWs peak in their 30's but is his best in the past?

I think his time is over, Minakov should destroy him pretty quickly. I don't think trt is going to fix that chin.

I dunno bigfoot went to war with hunt and ate his best shots on trt........off trt he didnt fair so well.


I think it will help him strength wise and confidence wise.

Minakov will still beat him imo but we whould see a fairly competitive bout.

That was 4 years and 5 knockouts ago though.

No amount of TRT can fix a brain riddled by concussions.

Not saying it fixes chins but increased strength,confidence and better recovery definitely can help a fighter.A guy like Arlovski can have a resurgence who had/has one of the most fragile chins in mma....just saying on trt we will see a more competitive version of bigfoot.
