I cover the sport of MMA and was totally unaware that Conor McGregor had made a callout of Anderson Silva. I didn’t know that I wanted to see this fight, but now that it’s on the table, I’m all in. With a resounding response of yes, Anderson Silva seems keen on stepping into the cage with McGregor.
If not Conor, Silva is open to the idea of fighting Nick Diaz once again. The two had a very close fight once before and fans wouldn’t hate to see the two go at it again.
However, McGregor vs Silva would be a full-on novelty that does massive numbers. Silva says if they fought it would be at 180 pounds. He used to fight around the 175-pound mark, but he’s 43 now and ‘Dad-Bod’ has kicked in pretty significantly.
A fight between Conor and Silva at 175-180 is not impossible and I’d spend all of my MikeSwick.com money to see that.
