And like that, Bigfoot Silva once again throws the MiddleEasy Frate Trane list askew. He sent Fedor off the list once and for all when he pummeled the Last Emperor into the mat in 2011, now he comes back from being fairly outmatched for ten minutes to catch Reem with a series of brutal strikes that sent the K-1, Dream and Strikeforce champ tumbling. We would be absolute jerks to not put Bigfoot on the list now, but it really isn’t up to us. We visit a mountaintop den like the one R’as al Ghul hangs out in to decide the Frate Trane list, and even then half of it is some sort of supernatual experience. So we make no promises.
I don’t know about a Cain rematch, but Barnett vs. Bigfoot has to happen. It would be the real final to the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix, you know.
You could say it was Reem’s lack of respect that was his undoing, even though he was landing and out-muscling Bigfoot for the entirety of the match. But, keeping your hands down isn’t the best idea when one shot from a dude who rehydrates to well over 280 pounds is all it takes, and Reem took a lot more than one shot. Wow.
Then Bigfoot Tweeted this:
