Although Brad Tavares is relatively unknown to most of the UFC fan base, that doesn't stop him from wanting to fight a legend and try to make everyone know who is. He recently spoke to Bleacher Report and called for a fight with Wanderlei Silva

"I want to fight Wanderlei Silva," Tavares told Bleacher Report in an exclusive interview. "I think the fight with Wanderlei makes a lot of sense and it would be awesome stylistically. I've been coming up the ranks and getting to fight someone I've looked up to for so long would be an awesome opportunity. It is the fight I really want and I hope I get my wish. It would be a dream come true to fight that guy.

"There is a lot that goes in to me wanting that fight. A lot people might not know this aside from my coaches and close friends, but Wanderlei has been my favorite fighter since I was a kid. There are a lot of fighters who have come along since I enjoy watching, but Wanderlei has always been my favorite. When I was growing up he was dominating over in Japan and I wanted to be just like him. I idolized the man. I wanted to fight viciously like him and the persona he carried blew me away back then."

You don't go from a spectacular fight and finish over Brian Stann to a fight with Brad Tavares. It would, in all likelihood, be a great fight though.

C'mon Brad, if you mean it would be an honour to fight him before retires fine but make some rankings sense if you're going to even involve that

At least he was respectful about it... and actually has some UFC wins.

I know Wand is probably looking for bigger fights, but I wouldn't mind seeing these 2 throw down.

Brad Tavares has such a big name that I'd forgotten who he was and had a bit of a wtf moment thinking "Thiago Tavares is calling out Wanderlai Silva?" Phone Post

Brad asked for the fight very respectfully. I can't fault the dude for that. It just doesn't make sense in the rankings at this time. Phone Post
