Credit – MixedMartialArts.com   Rodrigo Minotauro revealed on Saturday in his weekly column in the Rio newspaper Extra, which is close to Antonio “Big Foot” Silva, that Silva has been signed by the UFC. His debut will be in April at an event  yet-to-be confirmed, but believed to be UFC 146. The opponent would be none other than Cain Velasquez, former heavyweight champion and just lost his belt to Junior Dos Santos in November Bigfoot has not fought since September, when he was knocked out by Daniel Cormier in the semifinal of the Strikeforce GP. The athlete of Team Nogueira should follow the natural path of some of the Strikeforce heavyweight, since the event purchased by UFC extinguish the category of the heavy end of the GP. That’s what happened to the friend of Bigfoot, Fabricio Werdum, who confirmed his return to the Ultimate in February, against Roy Nelson chubby. The Brazilian giant underwent shoulder arthroscopy in November, but has returned to training. FOLLOW US on FACEBOOK using key word "WrestleChat" and on TWITTER at Twitter.com/WrestleChatNet
