UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva has not yet been offered the UFC 95 headlining bout against Chuck Liddell on February in London, but he would be “honored” to fight Liddell if given the chance.
Silva’s manager, Ed Soares, today confirmed the news with CagePotato.com.
“We haven’t been offered that fight. It’s just a rumor at this point. Anderson wants to fight the best and to fight superfights, the biggest fights the UFC can put on, and a fight with Chuck would obviously be a huge fight. What an honor it would be for Anderson to fight Chuck. There’s no bad blood between them, but Chuck is a huge star and it would be a great fight. Obviously we’ll have to wait and see, but Anderson doesn’t pick his opponents. He just wants to fight the biggest fights possible.”
