Antonio ‘Bigfoot’ Silva to Fight Cane Velasquez at UFC 146 and Poll

That’s correct fight fans, it appears Antonio ‘Bigfoot’ Silva (16-3) will make his UFC debut against former heavyweight champion Cane Valasquez (9-1).
Cane Valasquez was originally slated to fight Frank Mir, at UFC 146, until the Nevada State Athletic Commission confirmed that Alistair Overeem had tested positive for elevated testosterone levels.  This news made Overeem ineligible to fight in the event and the UFC decided to give Mir a title shot.
With Mir fighting Junior Dos Santos, for the belt, Cane needed a new opponent, that’s where ‘Bigfoot’ comes in.  Antonio Silva has many notable victories, including recent wins over Fedor Emelianenko,  and Mike Kyle in Strikeforce.  Silva was the first and last EliteXC Heavyweight Champion and the 2011 Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix Semifinalist.
