Former UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva hasn’t been seen in the Octagon since defeating Derek Brunson at UFC 208.
The Brazilian defeated Nick Diaz by decision at UFC 183 and now the fighter wants another shot at the Stockton native.
Silva made his intentions known via Instagram:
Acredito que essa foi uma das melhores lutas da história deste esporte. Com todo respeito Nick. Vamos mostrar como se faz. Aguardo sua resposta, máximo respeito à família Diaz. . I believe this was one of the best fights in the history of this sport. With all my respect Nick. Let's show how it's done. I will wait your reply, maximum respect to the Diaz family. @nickdiaz209
It has been a long time since Diaz has even been seen in the Octagon himself , as the first bout with Silva was the last time he fought in the Octagon.
Despite his need for a rematch with Diaz, the UFC President in Dana White recently said it is highly unlikely that either Diaz brother competes in the UFC again.
