Anderson Silva Wants Fedor!

Here is a quote from Yahoo Sports on Anderson Silva's request to fight Fedor Emelianenko:

White said that Silva also expressed an interest in fighting heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko, who is under contract with Affliction. White has made several attempts to sign Emelianenko, none successful.

Soares confirmed that Silva would like a fight with Emelianenko and said that size wouldn’t be an issue. Silva walks around between fights at 215 and Emelianenko fights around 230.

“We’d come in at about 220 if we ever got that fight,” Soares said. “Anderson thinks that would be a great fight for him. He didn’t say he expected to blow him out, but he thinks he can give him a very good fight.”

But long before he considers fighting Emelianenko, he has to worry about a match with Griffin.

Dana White has flip-flopped in the past with his stance on co-promotions however, with MMA organizations dropping like flies these days, the time is right to strike when the iron is Dana White hot.

It appears that Dana is luke warm at the moment to the idea following the UFC 97 embarrassment and is setting the stage after the Spider bites Griffin at UFC 101 for this historical MMA event.
