“Yeah (I would do it),” Jackson said at a Bellator 175 media conference call. “I’m always interested in fighting Wanderlei.”

Silva won the first two fights in the series by defeating Jackson at PRIDE Final Conflict 2003 and PRIDE 28, both wins came by KO/TKO.

Jackson got his first and only win by defeating Silva at UFC 92, that win came by knockout as well. If Jackson is successful in a fourth fight against Silva, a fifth fight may happen down the line.

“I think I owe him two more ass whoopings,” Jackson said.

The former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion must first focus on a rematch with King Mo at Bellator 175. Jackson won the first fight between himself and Mo at Bellator 120, the win came via a controversial decision.

Bellator 175 takes place on Friday, March 31 from the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois with Rampage Jackson and King Mo headlining. Fightful will be providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
