Antonio Bigfoot Silva will enjoy a 20lb weight advantage when he collides with 6ft 7in heavyweight Travis Browne on Friday on the stacked UFC on FX 5 card from the Target Center, Minneapolis.

The 6ft 4inch Bigfoot used every available pound, hitting the uppermost heavyweight limit of 266lbs for Friday's five-round main event against the undefeated Browne, who scaled 246lbs. The two goliaths then locked eyes for several intense moments before vowing to win inside the distance.

"His size doesn't matter, I'm a big guy too," Browne said. "I've got to go out there and give my best - because if I do that I know I can finish this fight impressively."

"I'm ready," Silva replied. "I'm ready to show the entire UFC what I can really do and this fight won't go more than two rounds."
