UnderGround Forums Anderson Silva calls out Conor McGregor

Anderson Silva is arguably the greatest fighter in UFC history. And he's 45 and recently had knee surgery. "The Spider" has won just one fight since 2012, a disputed decision over Derek Brunson. And despite the record, he's still Anderson Silva, losing then failing to regain the middleweight belt, seeing a win over Nick Diaz changed to NC over a failed PED test, losing Fight of the Nights vs. Michael Bisping and Israel Adesanya, making Daniel Cormier look scared to engage and on short notice, and finally suffering a knee injury vs. Jared Cannonier.

Conor McGregor recently mused about the MMA G.O.A.T. debate, putting himself, maybe, just behind Silva. And now Silva has called him out at an 80 kg catchweight.

"SUPER FIGHT 176.37LBS. I have immense admiration for the great athlete that Conor is and I believe that a super fight would go down in the history of the sport," wrote Silva on his social network. "Neither of us needs to prove anything to anyone; I believe that fans of the UFC and of this sport would like to watch this great martial arts spectacle, it would be fantastic to test my martial arts skills against him!!"

Three questions:
•Would Dana make the fight?
•Would you pay to watch the fight?
•Who will win?

This fight will never happen, but if it would, Silva takes this fight everywhere. If Silva is anywhere close to even the shape he was against Israel, Conor can't touch him on the feet, and gets destroyed on the ground.

Wish he'd have pushed this hard for a catchweight bout 10 years ago with GSP...

He moved up to 185 because he couldn't make 170 anymore. That was a long time ago.

This is another opportunity for the respectful Conor to show up like he did vs cowboy to try and further change his image from the drunk who punched an old man. He won't shit talk Silva and will be very respectful to one of the goats.

Old man Silva is late to the party. That fight might have been big shit 10 years ago.

I'm surprised to see how many people instantly counting Silva out. I think Silva takes this in an amazing fashion

Why didn’t he answer this fast when Usman called him out?

Surprised?

Anderson has only won 1 his last 8 fights, including a NC where he tested positive for steroids.

Silva hasn't been winning but he hasn't been getting beat up either. He doesn't need to retire yet. His fights have looked like sparring matches. When he is brutally knocked out, I'll be one of the first in line calling for him to hang them up.
