Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva had a career high moment in February when he defeated Fedor Emelianenko in the quarterfinals of the Strikeforce Heavyweight World Grand Prix. But in his semifinals bout, he was on the wrong end of a brutal beating at the hands of Daniel Cormier. Silva talked to Tatame.com after the event about what went wrong, and gave his prediction for who will win the Grand Prix finals bout between Cormier and Josh Barnett:

"I had a game plan, but I could never imagine he'd punch me like that. I wasn't underestimating him, but after he punched me I couldn't see a thing, I wasn't controlling my body anymore. I was doing things automatically, I could only see shadows. When I stood up I was dizzy. I was really dizzy after that jab, but I went for it. If I'm losing, at least I'll lose while fighting. It happened, he deserve the credits. I was well prepared, but he punched me. We didn't even really fought... I guess Josh [Barnett] will win [the finals]. If he doesn't make the same mistakes I did, of really going for it. That's the only chance Cormier got, his punch. He isn't any good on the ground to fight Josh there. He knows Wrestling, but… I guess Josh Barnett will win, he's more complete."
