“It’s a good fight for the fans and for me. We both haven’t fought for a while and I’m coming off an injury. Nick likes to fight standing and moves forward. Everybody knows he has an excellent boxing and will do the standup fight that everybody wants to see.”
“I believe that it’s going to be the best standup fight of all time in the UFC. I always pay attention to the best fighters in the UFC and the fighters that could one day be my opponents. I never imagined I would fight Nick Diaz, but I watched his fights because I think he’s an excellent fighter. He has a good jiu-jitsu, an excellent boxing, and I think it’s going to be a great fight. If he doesn’t try to grab me and stall, it’s going to be the best UFC fight ever.”
During today’s media call, the former pound-for-pound king, Anderson Silva discussed his return to the UFC against Nick Diaz.
And while the bout has potential, Silva thinks it could be one for the ages. Do you agree?
