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.”
