The rumored Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva (18-5-1) vs. Andrei Arlovski (22-10-1) heavyweight battle rumored for UFC Fight Night Brail (9/13) is now official. Silva posted a photo on Instagram (below) on Wednesday of himself signing the paperwork.
This is a rematch from their 2010 Strikeforce fight, which saw Bigfoot win via unanimous decision.
Silva is coming off a majority draw against Mark Hunt back at UFC Fight Night 33 last December. After the fight, he was suspended for 9 months for testing positive for elevated testosterone levels.
Arlovski returned to UFC back in June and scored a controversial split decision win over Brendan Schaub.
