Bigfoot Silva vs. Frank Mir staredown pic, video from UFC Fight Night 61 weigh ins in Brazil

The official weigh in event for UFC Fight Night 61: "Bigfoot vs. Mir" went down earlier today (Sat., Feb. 21, 2015) from inside Gigantinho Gymnasium in Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, featuring the much-ballyhooed heavyweight main event pitting Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva against former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir.

After the festivities wrapped, both men came face-to-face for the combat sports cameras. There's a lot on the line for these two goliaths, both now 35 years of age, as a loss could force UFC President Dana White to pull the dreaded retirement card.

See them square off below.

As for the co-main event, featuring dynamic lightweight striker Edson Barboza opposite 155-pound "Menace" Michael Johnson, a win gets the contender chatter going again for the second half of 2015.

Check out their fierce staredown pic below.
