The last time they met, in 2002, Antonio 'Bigfoot' Silva earned a decision victory over Andrei Arlovski in Strikeforce, but this time the Brazilian is looking for a finish:
"We fought once and we know what we can do, but we fought four years ago and I changed my game a lot since," Silva told MMAFighting.com. "I was too anxious in that fight. It was the second time I was fighting a well-known fighter, after Ricco Rodriguez, so I wanted the win no matter what. I tried to finish him but I couldn’t. I’m sure that it’s going to be different this time."
"I will do everything I can to finish him," he added. "I don’t like to let the fight go to a decision, we never know what the judges are going to do. My goal is to end it as soon as possible, but I will be ready for five rounds. I will try to submit or knock him out all the time. Arlovski deserves respect, but I only care about myself."
