Ahead of his fight with Israel Adesanya, Anderson Silva was asked about who else he would like to fight, with two more fights left on his contract. While one of those fights will most likely be for the title, the other one was against ‘The Notorious’ Conor McGregor.

Anderson Silva was one of the legends of UFC and was the king of the Middleweight Division in the UFC. for the longest time, he was unbeaten in his division, until he faced his first defeat in recent years.

However, Silva is also known for his ability to shift to other divisions. Anderson Silva has fought in other divisions when he decided to fight in lighter as well as heavier weight classes when he was required to make the change in his weight.

When asked about a possible super fight with Conor McGregor, Anderson Silva revealed that Dana White was not too eager for such a fight between the two Superstars. However, Silva revealed that he really wanted the fight against McGregor.

“That’s a super fight. I think that’s very interesting.”

If McGregor and Anderson Silva are to face each other in a fight, then Silva will have to go through a huge weight cut.

Anderson Silva is set to face Israel Adesanya at UFC 235 on the 2nd of March, 2019. It will be interesting to see how Anderson Silva and Adesanya face off, as they are clearly the faces of two different eras in the UFC.

MMA: Joshua Pacio rematch in works, as ONE exec questions bout result – ABS-CBN News


ONE boss Chatri believes Pacio won vs Japanese foe

Chatri Sityodtong on Tuesday said he believes Team Lakay fighter Joshua Pacio (left) was the rightful winner of the strawweight title bout against Japan’s Yosuke Saruta in Jakarta over the weekend. ONE Championship

Chatri Sityodtong on Tuesday said he believes Team Lakay fighter Joshua Pacio was the rightful winner of the strawweight title bout against Japan’s Yosuke Saruta in Jakarta over the weekend.

The ONE Championship executive added that Saruta did not do enough to earn a decision win against Pacio.

“I’m not a judge, but my personal opinion as a lifelong martial artist is that Joshua Pacio won,” Chatri said during the media conference promoting ONE’s Mall of Asia Arena card on Saturday, Friday, January 25.

Pacio and Saruta engaged in a close 5-round battle, with Pacio landing crucial shots. But Saruta secured takedowns, allowing him to dethrone Pacio via a narrow split decision.

“In my opinion, Joshua Pacio won because he landed the harder shots. Yes, he was taken down but Saruta did nothing,” Chatri said.

But the ONE CEO said he has to respect the judges’ decision.

“They hardly make an error. It was a close fight,” Chatri added.
“So there will be a rematch.”

Former UFC Fighter Still Targeting WWE Run – MMA News

Image Credit: Rob Tringali /Sports Illustrated/Getty Images

A former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fighter still has World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) in his sights.

It’s no secret that there has been a crossover effect with mixed martial arts and professional wrestling. We’ve seen Brock Lesnar go from the WWE champion to the UFC heavyweight champion. Ronda Rousey was a UFC champion, who transitioned to become the WWE Raw Women’s Champion. The likes of Tom Lawler and others have also dabbled into the world of pro wrestling, or “sports entertainment” as Vince McMahon likes to call it. Former World Heavyweight Champion in WWE Jack Swagger, real name Jake Hager, will be making his MMA debut on Jan. 26 at Bellator 214.

Eric Spicely Still Eyeing WWE Run

Back in December, former UFC fighter Eric Spicely participated in a WWE tryout. While feedback was sparse, Spicely felt good about the work he put in and his time spent at the tryouts. He told MMAFighting.com that he hopes to have impressed WWE officials enough to get the call:

“I was pretty devastated when Joe Silva told me not to do pro wrestling. Especially because Tom Lawlor had done some while he was signed too and I was like, ‘What the heck, man?’ He was like, ‘I didn’t ask, I just did it.’ Damn it, I messed up by asking. I would love to wrestle. I really hope the WWE calls me and they’re like, ‘We want you to come to NXT’ because that would be amazing. I’m just keeping my options open for whatever works out and comes to fruition.”

Which current MMA fighter without the experience do you think can transition to professional wrestling?
