Bigfoot Silva appears to be interested in venturing into slap-fighting. Silva recently made his official retirement from mixed martial arts (MMA), ending a legendary career that began back in 2005. The former UFC heavyweight title contender ended his MMA career on a seven-fight losing streak, forcing him to make the decision to hang up his gloves for good.
Now, it appears that Silva is looking to venture into a new field of combat. That field is slap-fighting. With Dana White’s Power Slap League now hitting the scene, it’s never been more likely for a former UFC star the likes of Silva to join such an organization. “Bigfoot” appears to be teasing exactly that with his latest Instagram page.
Bigfoot Silva Teases Slap-Fighting Debut
Silva took to his Instagram and shared a photograph of his massive hand. He captioned it with the daunting message “There is not a human being on earth who could survive my slap!”
Silva hasn’t picked up a combat sports victory since his TKO win over Soa Palelei back in 2015. Since, he has been defeated in MMA, professional boxing, bare-knuckle boxing, and kickboxing. His last fight took place in July of 2022 against Vyacheslav Datsik where Silva was defeated via second-round TKO just 44 seconds into the round.
