Terry Crews challenges UFC icon Anderson Silva to a fight on June 15

UFC Hall of Famer and former middleweight world champion Anderson Silva will return to action on June 15 for a fight with… Terry Crews?!

Yes, you read that correctly. In a video clip that literally nobody saw coming, Crews issued a challenge to the MMA legend, suggesting that the two stars from two very different mediums will collide in a bout emanating from Silva’s native Brazil.

“Anderson Silva, I’ve been training, I’m ready. I will see you at fight night, on June 15th, in Brazil. Let’s Go. Anderson Silva, me and you. Let’s make it happen. “

Anderson Silva has since responded to the post on Crews’ Instagram, writing: “See you June 15.”

Few details have been provided regarding Silva’s return to action next month, but rumors suggest that the bout will be a boxing match — a safe bet considering ‘The Spider’ has competed inside the squared circle four times since walking away from the UFC in 2020.

The contest is also expected to be the final fight of Silva’s illustrious combat sports career.

Despite his hulking appearance, Crews has never actually competed in any type of combat sport.

He was also signed by the Packers, Chargers, and the Commanders (former the Redskins) before retiring from the sport in 1997.

Crews and Silva are no strangers to one another, previously hosting regional variants of the Netflix reality series Ultimate Beastmaster.

As for why Crew would be the man to face Anderson Silva in the MMA icon’s final fight, who the hell knows? But we’ll most certainly watch it.
