At this stage of Anderson Silva’s career, just give the man whatever he wants. For years he has wanted to fight Roy Jones Jr and even reiterates in this video that boxing RJJ is his dream. However, Anderson was called out by Conor McGregor not so long ago and now Silva is wondering where Conor has gone.
“I accepted the fight for McGregor. I say let’s go do. 180 (lbs), is perfect for me and I think it’s good for McGregor. Let’s go do it. It’s an amazing fight for the fans”.
Then, Silva is asked if the fight has ever been close to happening. As Silva says that it’s “Close to happening”, his manager Ed Soares is in the background shaking his head ‘No’ at the same time.
Silva then deadpans the camera and says, “McGregor… Come on, man. Let’s do this. Don’t run, man. You scared?”
It looks like McGregor opening Pandora’s Box may not have been a wise choice because the middleweight GOAT wants a crack at McGregor and the all of the money that comes with him.
