Antonio Silva’s quick knockout loss to Frank Mir will force him out of action for two months.

"Bigfoot" lasted 100 seconds against the former two-time heavyweight champion in the main event of UFC Fight Night 61 in Porto Alegre, Brazil, on Sunday night, and was handed a 60-day suspension from the Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission (CABMMA).

The quick loss in Brazil marked the fifth time in the past eight bouts that Silva has been defeated by knockout. Prior to the bout with Mir, "Bigfoot" was stopped by Andrei Arlovski, Daniel Cormier and twice by Cain Velasquez.

William Macario, finished by Matt Dwyer with a superman punch in the opening round at UFN 61, also received a 60-day suspension from CABMMA.
