"It'll be very good, I'm looking forwards to know how it?ll be like. I've never had issues with anybody, I've always respected everybody, but as a professional I believe it'd be interesting fighting Brock Lesnar. I don't agree that Brock is the second on the ranking, it doesn't make sense. This fight would be interesting so I put Brock on the place where he was supposed to be... It really doesn't make any sense."

-Strikeforce heavyweight Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva talks to Tatame.com about the fight he'd like to have now that Strikeforce has been purchased by Zuffa.

Penick's Analysis: Silva has made countless disparaging remarks about Lesnar throughout the last year, and coming off the biggest win of his career over Fedor Emelianenko it's a fight that could make a lot of money for the UFC sometime down the line. There are a lot of very interesting heavyweight fights that will hopefully be made over the next couple of years with all of them under one roof, as despite the claims of "business as usual" I believe it's just a matter of time before the top heavyweights from Strikeforce are in the UFC. But with all Silva has said about Lesnar, it'd be nice to see him have a chance to back it all up, and that fight could be a very big fight for the UFC in the next year or so.
