MMA Confidential Anderson Silva MMA vs BOXING Roy Jones Machida Weidman

by Bruce KiVo

So many want a piece of Anderson Silva, but who does “The Spider” Silva want?

Anderson vows to KO undefeated Division 1  All American Wrestler and new 185-pound UFC Champ  Chris Weidman in their rematch at UFC 168.   Expect the unexpected from both fighters.The rematch is anybody’s fight.  Weidman’s ko of Silva was no fluke.  This boy can do it all.We’ll see who carries out their gameplan better.

If Anderson loses the rematch, Lyoto Machida can vy for a shot at the middleweight crown as teamates Lyoto and Anderson have vowed never to compete against one another.

Considered by many to be the best MMA fighter of all time, Anderson Silva has a hard time with wrestlers as demoed in his near loss to Chael Sonnen in their first fight.

If he beats Weidman, Anderson wants Roy Jones and so does the UFC.  It would be epic… MMA vs BOXING.      One can wonder why Silva would want to compete in boxing.  Of course the payday would be off the hook,but   Roy Jones believes testing oneself against one of the best boxers of all time is the real incentive for The Spider.  With a big size and reach advantage and similiar style to Roy, it seems unlikely that  the 38yr old Silva could avoid being decimated by Roy Jones.  Chael was able to knock him down and Chris Weidman ko’d him. Roy Jones Jr.  At 44 and past his prime has accepted the challenge as long as it comes pretty soon.

The reality of this match really happening seems a bit unlikely as the UFC’s 185lb division is stacked and the clock is ticking for Roy Jones Jr.  It’s up to Dana White and the UFC.

I say “let the games begin”.  Win or lose vs Weidman, we want to see this fight!

Until next time!
