Anderson Silva says: “I’d like to test myself against Conor because he’s an interesting martial artist.
His stand-up game is an intelligent game. Not because he’s champion now, but for the martial arts challenge.
I’d like to see how these stand-up techniques, his and mine, would mix, and how that would go. But not to fight for a belt or anything like that.
For the challenge, an interest, that thing about knowing how a fight like this would go.”
Anderson thinks Conor can make 176 or 178 pounds, and he says he himself recently weighed 174 pounds.
Anderson has fought at 168 pounds in the past.
Conor has expressed admiration for Silva’s skills in the past.
