“Arlovski deserves respect, but I only care about myself." - Bigfoot Silva
- Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva recently spoke about his upcoming rematch with Andrei Arlovski. Here are the highlights…
On His Rematch With Andrei Arlovski: "We fought once and we know what we can do, but we fought four years ago and I changed my game a lot since. I was too anxious in that fight. It was the second time I was fighting a well-known fighter, after Ricco Rodriguez, so I wanted the win no matter what. I tried to finish him but I couldn't. I'm sure that it's going to be different this time. I will do everything I can to finish him," he added. "I don't like to let the fight go to a decision, we never know what the judges are going to do. My goal is to end it as soon as possible, but I will be ready for five rounds. I will try to submit or knock him out all the time. Arlovski deserves respect, but I only care about myself."
On Wanting to Fight Josh Barnett: "I really wanted to fight Josh, but the UFC thought that Andrei Arlovski would be a better fight right now," he said. "He's a really tough opponent, a former heavyweight champion, and I'm happy to headline a UFC card in Brazil against him."
