Georges St. Pierre vs. Anderson Silva came in 9th on our list of The Top Ten Fights We Want To See Before 2012 Blows Up The Earth Or Something. We got a lot of crap for it because fights like ‘Seth Petruzelli vs. Kimbo Slice’ ranked higher but come on people, how angry can you get at a hypothetical list that factors in the world coming to an end in a little over a year?
Anderson Silva knows how to sell a fight, and it’s usually with the promise that he will absolutely humilate his opponent through the use of matrix-like striking and Brazilian jiu-jitsu that will earn him a nice little spot in the halls of Valhalla whenever the time comes. In an interview with ESPN UK, Ando calls out Michael Bisping and even says that he wants to fight The Count in his hometown.
“The British fans are very knowledgeable and passionate about MMA. I would love to fight there once more”
“Michael Bisping is very impressive. He’s been in the UFC for a long time now and beaten some very good fighters. It would be an honour to fight him, perhaps in England.”
“He is fast, is very busy and makes adjustments quickly. I am the champion of the world, not just Brazil or America. Being a world champion means taking on the best fighters from around the world all over the world.
“If the chance came I would like to fight Bisping in the UK if that’s what the UFC put together.”
The ‘Oh no he didn’t’ train just rolled in town and Anderson Silva decided to pack his bags and hop on. The ‘Oh no he didn’t’ train is rumored to be heading back to 1994 where it belongs (along with phrases like ‘That’s whack’, ‘Cowabunga’ and ‘Smell you later’). [Source]
