Mark Hunt vs Bigfoot SilvaAntonio “Bigfoot” Silva is reportedly on a return track to the Octagon, and his first opponent back is apparently going to be a familiar one.

Brazilian news outlet Globo is reporting that Bigfoot and former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski have verbally agreed to headline an upcoming UFC Fight Night on Sept. 13 in Brasilia, Brazil. UFC officials had not yet confirmed the bout at the time of publication.

The two first fought in May of 2010 under the Strikeforce banner. Silva won the bout via unanimous decision.

The six-foot-four Brazilian has been on suspension ever since his fight with Mark Hunt last December. Silva tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone after the fight, for which he received nine months on the sidelines. His suspension should conclude in August.

Arlovski (22-10, 1 NC) hit a bad patch after leaving he UFC, losing four consecutive bouts at one point. The loss to Silva was one of three while fighting for Strikeforce. He rebounded, however, amassing a 7-1, 1 NC record since exiting Strikeforce.

His most recent bout saw Arlovski return to the Octagon, where he won a split decision over Brendan Schaub in a performance that even he characterized as disappointing.
