Antonio Silva gets knocked out at Fight Nights Global 68

antonio silva gets knocked out

Bigfoot lost his fifth consecutive fight, his fourth via stoppage.

Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva fought this afternoon on FightPass as part of Fight Nights Global 68. He was facing Vitaly Minakov who was bringing a perfect 19-0 record into the clash.  Antonio Silva has lost 9 of his 10 fights.  Vitaly Minakov improves to 20-0 as a professional. Watch as Antonio Silva gets knocked out.

In the fight, during the second round, Silva eats a right hand, and then appears to slip and go to the mat. Minakov pounces  and leans above him landing a series of shots that ends the fight. For Silva, it’s another tough TKO loss. For Minakov it will likely put him squarely on the UFC’s radar. They can always use big exciting heavyweights.

Fight Nights Global 68 features a main event championship match between Sergey Pavlovich (10-0) vs Mikhail Mokhnatkin (9-1-2).
