Silva Welcomes McGregor Fight

While Conor McGregor took the loss at UFC 229, the former dual division champion is riding high on a promotional tour of his whiskey, and now has a potential money fight against a UFC legend.

Anderson Silva is ready for a showdown with McGregor, after McGregor laid down a challenge to the former middleweight champion recently.

“I’m waiting,” Silva told TMZ Sports (shown above). “Because I accept the challenge for Conor.”

“I think (UFC president Dana White needs) to think about this,” Silva said as he nears a return from a USADA suspension. “Because it’s two big guys in this sport. Two big names – yes, absolutely, two big legends. And, why not?”

“I think 180 for me is good,” Silva said. “I think to Conor, (it’s good) too. Because it’s a super fight, it’s not about weight class.”

“Let me tell you something very important: It’s not about money, it’s about martial arts challenge.”
