Conor McGregor Has Accepted A Superfight With UFC Legend Anderson Silva

Big.

In the past couple of months – aside from UFC 249 – we haven’t had much in the way of combat sports to satisfy our cravings for seeing two people kick the living shit out of one another, so we’ve had to live off big personalties beefing on Twitter and not really going anywhere but this latest exchange has definitely got people talking.

MMA superstar Conor McGregor was mouthing off on one of his Twitter rants yesterday about who the GOAT of the sport is, when UFC legend Anderson Silva decided to wade in and challenge him to a fight. To the surprise of everyone, Conor eagerly accepted the offer and now it seems like two of the biggest names in MMA history might actually end up squaring off against each other.

Here’s how the exchange went down:

SUPER 👊🏾FIGHT 176.37LBS Tenho uma imensa admiração pelo grande atleta Conor e acredito que um super fight seria algo histórico para o esporte, nem um de nós precisa provar mais nada a ninguém; acredito que os fãs do ufc e do esporte gostariam de ver este grande espetáculo marcial, testar minhas habilidades marciais com ele seria fantástico!! I have immense admiration for the great athlete that Conor is and I believe that a super fight would go down in the history of the sport, neither of us need to prove anything to anyone; I believe that fans of the UFC and of this sport would like to watch this great martial arts spectacle, it would be fantastic to test my martial arts skills against him!!

OK, so obviously this is just something that happened on Twitter and social media, but you have to remember that Conor McGregor said that he would fight Donald Cerrone on Twitter over a year before that fight actually happened, so he does have some precedence in this situation. Added to this is the fact that anyone who has even a passing interest in MMA would love to see Silva fight McGregor and it’s bound to make a shit load of money, then you have to think that this is something that might actually end up happening, even if The Spider is way past his prime now. Here’s hoping.
