Heck I'd watch this. Silva one of the most arrogant fighters around (not that he should be these days) and McGregor, even more arrogant and rightfully so. Would be a good match.

Would be a good match if it were a few years ago. Although Anderson was a phenomenon in the octagon before, I think his days have passed. I see his point in wanting to challenge himself with the current best, but I don't think he stands a chance. But what do I know? :P

Oh Silva was my favorite, but he's lost his edge with his age. McGregor would definitely win in my opinion
