- Bigfoot Silva recently spoke about his fight with Alistair Overeem at UFC 156. Here are the highlights…

On Staying Focused: “I’m working just for this fight. I know after this fight, many people will talk about a title fight, or a fight with Cain Velasquez. But I’m fighting this fight, and I just want to win this fight. After Feb. 2, I’ll think about the other fight.”

On a Possible Title Shot: “Yeah, it would be a dream come true,” Silva said. “But if the UFC says I should fight another guy and not Cain Velasquez, I just want to fight the best guys. Me, I love my job. I love what I do. I just want to fight.”

On Overeem Not Being The Same as Fedor: “Fedor (was bigger),” he said. “Fedor was a very, very fast guy. He’s a legend in this sport. He didn’t lose for 10 years. He had 30 fights when I fought him, and just one loss. This guy (Overeem) is 32-11. Fedor is a legend.”
