The former UFC middleweight champion and great pound-for-pound athlete recently revealed in a recent interview with Brazilian MMA Combate (h / t Marcelo Alonso of Sherdog) that the mega fight with Conor McGregor was agreed to at 170 pounds, but the UFC stopped the fight.

UFC owes me a super fight by contract,” Silva said on Monday. “Conor [McGregor] called me out right after my fight with [Israel] Adesanya. Our team talked to his team and we agreed upon a bout at [170 pounds], but something happened and UFC decided to not make it.”

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Silva is also open to superfighting former WEC and UFC lightweight title holder Anthony Pettis, but says he doesn’t want to face any newcomers at this late stage in his career.

Then Anthony Pettis proposed that super fight, and I liked it because he was already a champion who has impressive knockouts,” Silva added. “Of course, it would be a great super fight.

“At this point of my career and for all my legacy it doesn’t make any sense to face new talents that are entering the game now. I don’t want to be a ‘step’ for the new generation. I want to face relevant champions for the sport. And definitely Pettis is a great challenge that will make me train a lot.”

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Silva, 45, is the oldest fighter in the UFC and has been 1-4 in his five fights. “The Spider” last fought in 2019, when he was defeated by TKO to Jared Cannonier in the first round of the UFC 237 co-main event.[/vc_column_text][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVjo7saxO8k”][vc_raw_html]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[/vc_raw_html][vc_column_text]See also: John Jones opened as clear favorite against Stipe Miocic
