Anderson Silva is looking for rematches with Nick Diaz and Michael Bisping

There are lots of fighters interesting in tangling with legend Anderson Silva, but it appears that he’s focused on two particular rematches.

There’s little doubt that Anderson Silva has had the best middleweight run ever seen in the UFC, and that he’s one of the best fighters of all time. And despite being almost 42 years old, he doesn’t seem ready to fade into retirement just yet. A win over Derek Brunson at UFC 208, his first official victory in over four years, has put him in the sights of other top middleweights like Kelvin Gastelum and Yoel Romero.

But Silva is more interested in a couple of rematches – against Nick Diaz and current UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping.

The Spider took to Instagram to make his point:

Somos três grandes profissionais, o que faz mais sentido neste momento, não é a luta dele com qualquer outro, mas sim comigo, independente de cinturão. Independente do show, nós nos respeitamos, uma nova luta entre nós, seria um grande combate de cavalheiros. . Até porque com o Nick, foi um No Contest, temos história pra contar, te espero no Brasil. . E aguardo você Mr. Bisping, depois da sua luta com GSP. . Exterminar de uma vez por todas esta dúvida dos fãs sobre quem realmente venceu. . We are three great professionals, what makes the most sense at the moment, is not his fight with any other, but with me, regardless of belt. Regardless of the show, we respect each other, a new fight between us, would be a great fight of gentlemen. . Because with Nick, it was a No Contest, we have a story to tell, I’ll wait for you in Brazil. . And I’m waiting for you, Mr. Bisping, after your fight with GSP. . Exterminate once and for all this doubt of the fans about who really won.

Here’s what he said:

“We are three great professionals, what makes the most sense at the moment, is not his fight with any other, but with me, regardless of belt. Regardless of the show, we respect each other, a new fight between us, would be a great fight of gentlemen..

Because with Nick, it was a No Contest, we have a story to tell, I’ll wait for you in Brazil..

And I’m waiting for you, Mr. Bisping, after your fight with GSP..

Exterminate once and for all this doubt of the fans about who really won.”

Silva (34-8, 1 NC, 17-4, 1 NC UFC) fought Diaz in the UFC 183 headliner back in January 2015, but the fight was flipped to a No Contest after Silva failed a drug test. He met Bisping in his return fight from suspension in February 2016, and dropped a controversial decision. Bisping is set to fight the returning Georges St-Pierre for the 185-pound title later this year.
