Respect to Anderson Silva for having absolutely no shame. Despite winning one fight since 2012, Spider Silva is out here asking for the biggest money fight in the UFC.
Is normal. Can’t believe Andy is 44 years old now. Where does the time go? And seriously the Spider GOAT is 1-5 with one no contest (War Diaz) over his last six fights. Just ripping through his legacy like no other and still wanting a fight with Conor McGregor.
Silva is probably going to ask for a fight with Brock Lesnar if he gets through Conor. That’s just how Spider rolls.
Spider GOAT has reached the point of his career where he is fighting a guy called Jared Cannonier (????) at UFC 237. Cannonier holds a 4-3 record in the UFC and if you couldn’t pick him out of a line-up, MiddleEasy can’t really blame you.
Seriously, Silva’s last signature win came in in October 2012. YOLO Anderson Silva and never change with your wild fight requests.
“I believe in this fight,” Silva said. “It’s very interesting for the sport, for the fans but it is a good question for Dana White. Conor accepts the challenge, I accept the challenge. It’s just waiting for the opportunity.
Come on, boss! Give this show for the fans. Give this show for the bigs fans of the UFC. Two big guys, two big names. It’s good money for you, Dana, and a good challenge for me and for Conor.”
“It’s a good fight for me and Conor. It’s a good experience for the fans. It’s a super, super, super fight — Anderson Silva and Conor McGregor.”
Is normal and almost a little sad.
