Anderson Silva:  I want to beat this dwarf… what’s the boy’s name again? McGregor


Anderson Silva is set to fight Derek Brunson at UFC 208 in Brooklyn, New York, but the Spider recently stated that he would like to end his career going against Conor McGregor.

In a recent interview with Brazilian media outlet GloboTV, Silva said:

Now that I’m old, I’m beginning to challenge everyone. Oh, I want to beat this dwarf… what’s the boy’s name again? McGregor. It is not provocation. It’s just that I forget, I’m old. Old men know what it’s like. I have this urge to test myself against him. I think he’s a guy who has an unusual ability. I do not know if he would reach a weight of 81, 82 kg, which is the weight I can get to, but it’s a guy I’d like to test myself before I end my career. I think it would be a great fight for the world of fights and UFC history.”

 McGregor of course is the UFC lighweight champion who has fought recently at 170 pounds, and Silva is the former middleweight champion whose most recent fight was at light heavyweight at UFC 200 against Daniel Cormier.

Is this Anderson Silva vs. Conor McGregor fight likely to happen?  No….. however it does make one wonder what the outcome would be.  Sort of a dream match up of sorts.
