Diazís manager/coach Cesar Gracie went online this week to let the world know Diaz still wants to fight Silva though UFC President Dana White isnít necessarily keen on the idea. Diazís interest in a showdown with Silva was initially revealed in late July where it was stated heíd even fight the fan-favorite at 185 pounds if need be.
The 37-year old Silva has been vocal about his desire to take on welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre in the coming months, seeking the biggest fights possible before calling it a career. However, after Diazís name was originally thrown around, Silvaís management acknowledged the bout made for an intriguing possibility considering the competitorís fanbase and fighting style.
I must admit while I hate to see 2 of my favorite fighters going at it this one is intriguing.
