Bigfoot Silva Added To Sengoku 10, Fighting Jim York


From with the story:

World Victory Road today announced a trio of bouts, including a heavyweight contest between Antonio Silva (12-1) and “Big” Jim York (11-2), for the organization's upcoming Sengoku 10th Battle event.

Additionally, Hiroshi Izumi (0-0) meets Antz Nansen (0-0), and Makoto Takimoto (5-5) takes on Jae Sun Lee (5-4) in other bouts.

Sengoku 10th Battle takes place at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, and airs in North America on HDNet.

Silva, Izumi and Takimoto were announced as event participants earlier this month, though their opponents were not immediately revealed.

Silva's is now veteran fighter York (not the erroneously reported Ron Sparks). Silva, a former EliteXC fighter, signed with WVR after a failed drug test in California (the fighter and his camp still deny Silva used any banned substances).
