Anderson Silva wants a catchweight fight with Conor McGregor

on

Former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva is looking to fight UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor. Silva explained why he wants the fight in an interview with Combate.

“That’s a challenge I would like to do. I’ve never asked to fight anybody, but I would like to test my martial arts skills against Conor McGregor. I would like that and a rematch with Nick Diaz and Michael Bisping. I think McGregor is a great striker, but he didn’t do very well in his last fight because he played into Nate Diaz’s game and that’s really hard. The Diaz brothers have a lot of gas. You have to respect him, the loss to Diaz doesn’t diminish his career at all.  These are the fighters I would like to fight. McGregor, Diaz and Bisping because that fight did not end nicely.”

“We could do a catchweight. He said we would fight anybody, anywhere. I think a catchweight would be interesting for the sport, for me and for him.”
