Roiders Collide: Antonio “Big Foot” Silva Wants To Fight Josh Barnett For Sengoku Title

Antonio “Big Foot” Silva talks with the Brazilian news magazine, Tatame (loosely translated with Google):

“I have two more fights in Sengoku, and winning this, we still have no opponent, I must fight for the belt in December. They will create the belt and I will fight for the title”

“I wish you were Josh Barnett, as he will not fight more in the United States…. He has a contract with Sengoku and is trained”

Former EliteXC heavyweight champion and accused roider, Antionio Silva wants to face Josh “Affliction Undertaker” Barnett in Sengoku’s heavyweight tournament set to start in September. The winner’s of the first round of the tournament would likely face off in December for the Sengoku heavyweight title.

EliteXC News: Antonio “Big Foot” Silva Test Positive For Steroids

The California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) has announced that EliteXC heavyweight champion Antonio “Big Foot” Silva has tested positive for the anabolic steroid Boldenone following his win over Justin Eilers at “EliteXC Unfinished Business”.

Silva, an American Top Team fighter will must serve a 12 month suspension and pay a $2500 fine in order to obtain a fighting license.

Bad news for EliteXC who will have to decide whether to strip Silva of the heavyweight title or just wait around one year for him to defend the title. With EliteXC’s weak heavyweight division, it is a hard to speculate what they will do, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see Kimbo wearing the belt someday soon.

Wikipedia:

The activity of boldenone is mainly anabolic, with a low androgenic potency. It has a very long half-life, and can show up on a steroid test for up to 1.5 years, due to the long undecylenate ester attached to the parent steroid….The drug is commonly used in doping within bodybuilding, even though this use is illegal. If intended to assist in bodybuilding, the drug is taken as part of a steroid stack of other anabolic steroids, usually with a potent androgen like testosterone as the ‘base’ of the stack.
