Pezao Speaks! Title Fight On NYE?

src
In a new interview with Portal das Lutas, Antonio Silva reveals that he will fight for the SRC Heavyweight title at Sengoku Raiden Championship on NYE, likely against Josh Barnett.

PDL – Is there a chance you will dispute the belt in Japan?

AP – Yes. I’m going to dispute the belt at the end-of-the-year event. I’m still waiting on my opponent, but it looks likely to be Josh Barnett.

PDL – Will you ever fight in the United States again?

AP – Yes, possibly at the end of November I’ll be back on American soil.

PDL – What about the UFC, is that in your plans?

AP – I do think about the Ultimate [Fighting Championship], but I’m happy in Japan. I have a contract and I can’t sign with the UFC because all their athletes are exclusive.

There are three Strikeforce events in November so it looks like his possible American return will take place there.

    There are actually 3 events in November for Strikeforce. Nov 6th, Nov 7th, and Nov 20th, but I believe he wants to fight on CBS on the 7th.

    Cool stuff, glad to here that along with fighting for a title we may see Pezao fight for Strikeforce as well. It would definetely be a solid addition for them if that happens and if it does, its much needed. The Barnett fight will also be fun to watch.
