MMA legend and former UFC middleweight champ Anderson Silva was speaking with TMZ over the weekend and he said that he accepts Conor McGregor's challenge to a fight in the Octagon.
McGregor had told Ariel Helwani that a fight with Anderson Silva would greatly interest him.
”I would be interested in an Anderson Silva bout. I swear to God. Anderson is a legend in the game," said McGregor.
And now it looks like Anderson Silva is game too for this fight. The 43-year-old said he would get down to 180lbs to make this fight a catchweight.
