Conor McGregor Wants To Fight Anderson Silva, Dana White Shoots It Down

Former two division UFC champion Conor McGregor and former UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva have hinted at fighting each other before.

McGregor, who checked out Silva’s performance at UFC 234, would take to Twitter to say he’d like to fight Silva:

UFC President Dana White would get word of what McGregor said and he would quickly shoot that potential bout down.

“Did he really? No, I don’t like that fight at all,” White said at the UFC 234 post-fight press conference (via Bloody Elbow).

Silva stated after the event that he’d like to fight Nick Diaz next at UFC 237, as the two previously collided in the main event of UFC 183. McGregor is currently serving a six month suspension for his role in the UFC 229 post-fight brawl.
