Anderson Silva Wants to Fight Conor McGregor, Thinks Conor is Scared
Wed, 19 Dec 2018
TMZ SPORTS -- Conor McGregor is too freakin' chicken to step into the ring with Anderson Silva, at least that's what Anderson Silva thinks, saying he'd love to fight Conor, but doubting Conor wants any part of him.
Conor has said back in October that he'd be interested in fighting Silva, saying he was willing to bulk up a little to get into the Octagon with Spider and duke it out.
Since then, Conor has taken a beating at the hands of Khabib, but when we got Silva out, he said he doesn't care about that, telling our guy he still wants the fight.
"I say letís go do it. 180 is the perfect weight for me, I think it's good for McGregor, and letís go do it because thatís amazing. Thatís for the fans."
One problem ... Anderson isn't sure Conor still wants it, and is using the s-word as the reason why.
"Itís close to happening you know, but McGregor, come on man. Letís go do this. Donít run man, donít run. You scared? I donít believe that you're scared, letís go."
Here's the thing ... the fight kinda makes sense now. Conor might want to take a tune up before a Khabib rematch, and who better to fight than a much older opponent with a huge name?
Unless of course, McGregor thinks the Spider can still bite ... ball is in your court Notorious One.
