Wanderlei SIlva Wants To Fight Rampage Before Career Ends

From Fighter's Only Magazine:

“I don’t have a problem with him, but I want to fight with him again. I want to fight him now and maybe I want to fight with him again in my final year,” Silva revealed, adding with a laugh: “This history don’t stop.”

The two have a long history of apparent enmity and have faced off in a trilogy of fights that are some of the defining moments of MMA.

But Silva is adamant that away from the ring, he does not dislike Jackson. He says that the aggression comes from his mentality leading up to a fight, a period he refers to as his “depression”.

“This is a depression for the fight, you know? This is not fake, this is not just for promotion. With the depression you have more emotion, the emotions come and… emotion is emotion no?” he explained.

“But I don’t have a problem with him. I saw him and spoke with him [at UFC 95 in London]. I shook his hand.”
