Anderson “The Spider” Silva Wants To Fight The Best, Chuck Liddell Could Be Next In Line

The current UFC middleweight champion Anderson "The Spider" Silva has been looking to fight the best contenders in
the world now that he is at his peak in mixed martial arts.  Fighters like
Silva are very rare and he just wants to test himself amongst top competitors
in the sport.

The Brazilian Muay Thai specialist will be taking on Patrick "The
Predator" Cote at UFC 90
on October 25th, 2008.  Silva is solely focusing on Cote at this moment of his life, but if he is
able to get past the Canadian predator then we’ll most likely be expecting
"big mega fights" according to Silva’s manager– Ed Soares.
Here’s what Soares had to say in a recent interview with mmaweekly:

“I think he wants to fight those big mega fights because
that’s the kind of fight we want to be involved with right now…I think it’s a
combination of seeing what the potential opponent is and also seeing what the
UFC wants to do. At the end of the day, this is a business, and they need to
sell fights. They need to sell a lot of pay-per-views, and they need to sell
tickets. So, we want to be involved with those types of fights…We’re not
looking past Patrick Cote, but I think we’ll take one step at a time and see
what happens. But yeah, if a Chuck Liddell fight came up, we’d take it…Whoever
the UFC wants to put in front of us, he wants to fight the best, and whoever
that may be at the time, that’s who he wants to fight…If the right fight was to
come up for the New Year’s fight, maybe we would take it…Right now it’s really
hard to say, we’re pretty much just focused with Anderson on the Oct. 25 fight.”

    Anderson is a great fighter, and a greater person! I would love to see him fight Chuck. I think that Chuck can then retire. Chuck is a great guy too, but I think that his time has come.

    chuck liddell is used to getting hit by guys as big or bigger than him and hes also used to “ko”‘ing guys as big or bigger than him….
    silva is used to gitting hit or hitting middle weights as big or smaller than him, think about it the odds are stacked tawards chuck, if chuck wins however it wont do much for him i mean come on the former lighthevy weight champ is sopposed to beat a middle weight
    but if chuck somehow loses to a middle weight hes fighting days are over no matter how good the middle weight is…..if i were chuck i would turn down the fight as a side note however i still think chuck can win fights(if he puts his mind to it) i believe in ya iceman…

    luke u might just be the the biggest retard iv ever meet. silva has stated many times that he walks around at 215lbs u should really no what ur talking about b4 u start talking. silva has a real good chance at knocking out the slower not as skilled iceman, but on the same hand the iceman can knock out anyone in the ufc.
