Hey Glover Teixeira, "Bigfoot" now has a faster ride than yours!

How did Antonio Silva get rewarded for his vicious knockout of Alistair Overeem? Well, aside from a cool $50,000 "Knockout of the Night" bonus check from Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and the next Heavyweight title shot, the upset win also earned the Brazilian a $126,000 sports car.

Hope he fits.

"Bigfoot" was gifted a brand new Gran Turismo Maserati by Sienna Motors for extending his sponsorship deal, which is just two weeks removed from putting "The Reem" to sleep at UFC 156 earlier this month in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Silva proudly displayed his new ride on his Instagram page.

On Feb. 2, 2013, "Bigfoot" shocked the mixed martial arts (MMA) world, again, when he knocked out Overeem in the final round if their showdown in "Sin City." A win for Overeem would have given him his much-desired title shot against current UFC Heavyweight champion, Cain Velasquez, but, with the loss, the nod went to Silva instead.

Let's see, a $50,000 bonus check, a $126,000 Maserati and a world heavyweight title shot?

It's been a good month for "Bigfoot" ... and two weeks still remain.
