Former EliteXC heavyweight champion and 11-time UFC veteran Antonio Silva is heading to Russia.

MMAjunkie today confirmed with Silva’s manager, Alex Davis, that “Bigfoot” will compete in the main event of an upcoming Titov Boxing Promotion event on Nov. 18 in Yekaterinburg, Russia.

Silva (19-10-1) will take on Russian Ivan Shtyrkov (4-0).

The 225 lb Shtyrkov has an odd record. He won his first fight vs. Ukraine’s Vitaly Oparin in 61 seconds. And he won his second fight vs. Ukraine’s Vitaly Oparin, in 97 seconds. Oparin is 1-12 in MMA. Next Shtyrkov beat Jeff Monson in what Monson, recovering from a bicep tear, thought was an exhibition match for the crowd. And in his latest fight, Shtyrkov beat Georgy Sakaev who is now 1-0.

You don’t have to apply for a TUE in Russia. Bigfoot will in all likelihood have normal levels of testosterone, and when he does, he is a world-class fighter. Silva is an enormous step up from guys who are 1-12, 0-1, or the promotional equivalent of a sucker punch.

Shtyrkov better keep his hands up.

TRT Bigfoot was pretty fucking good. I think it is a shame he couldn't get a TUE

Trt Bigfoot had a war with mark hunt.....off trt not so much.

He is one of the only guyd i'd day deserved a exemption to use trt.If you lactate milk wothout it your body definitely has a deficiency.

He will likely be back on the trt wagon but i dont think trt will help his chin at this point hes been kod alot.

If he loses a rematch with fedor would be just about worthless imo.
