Conor McGregor: ‘It Would Be An Honour’ To Fight Anderson Silva
Anderson Silva dropped a decision loss to Israel Adesanya at UFC 234, and before Silva could wrap up his post-fight interview, a certain Irishman took to social media to once again fan the flames.
Conor McGregor has already verbally agreed to fight Donald Cerrone, but the former lightweight champion is still eyeing a fight with Anderson Silva. Silva turned back the clock to put on an impressive performance against Israel Adesanya in the main event of UFC 234, and talked about wanting to fight Conor McGregor in the past.
Dana White has already said he’d be happy to book a fight between Conor McGregor and Donald Cerrone, but with Conor now courting a showdown with Anderson Silva, it remains to be seen what’s next for the former ‘champ-champ’.
“Anderson is one crafty, crafty Martial Artist”, Conor remarked. “You only develop these methods through years of hard fought experience.
The crafty veteran. Big respect always.
It would be an honor!”
