“Bigfoot” Silva With Big-Time Surgery On His Shoulder

“Bigfoot” Silva With Big-Time Surgery On His Shoulder

Antonio Silva decided now is as good a time as any for shoulder surgery, seeing as he was suspended for a failed post-fight drug test in December.

Silva, who fought Mark Hunt to a majority draw in Australia, sent out a message via Instagram following the operation.

“After hours of surgery in my shoulder I’m very well and I will be back 100-percent thank you everyone,” he wrote.

Silva (18-5) tested positive for elevated levels of TRT, despite having clearance to use the therapy before the fight.
