Anderson Silva Wants to Fight Conor McGregor Because of Course He Does

Anderson Silva Wants to Fight Conor McGregor Because of Course He Does

Add Brazilian legend Anderson Silva to the long list of fighters who like multi-million dollar paydays.

That’s right, Silva says he’d like to fight Conor McGregor. Which isn’t all that surprising – pretty much every fighter on the roster would like to fight McGregor and got the big bucks that accompany the honor. What is surprising is that Silva is a freakin’ giant compared to McGregor, and fought Daniel Cormier in his last fight.

Here’s MMAFighting with the Silva quote:

“I’d like to test myself against Conor because he’s an interesting martial artist,” Silva said during a UFC 208 media scrum in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. “His stand-up game is an intelligent game. Not because he’s champion now, but for the martial arts challenge. I’d like to see how these stand-up techniques, his and mine, would mix, and how that would go. But not to fight for a belt or anything like that. For the challenge, an interest, that thing about knowing how a fight like this would go.”

“I believe he can make 176, 178 pounds, right? That’s a weight I can get,” said Silva, who mentioned recently that he could get closer to 170 pounds. “We started this work and I got to 174, but we thought it would be better now to do these tests.
