With only a few months away from being eligible to fight again, former pound-for-pound MMA king and long-time middleweight champion Anderson Silva immediately declared his intent to get back in the Octagon.

In a report by Brazilian media outlet Combate last week, “The Spider” wants to duke it out with perennial middleweight contender Michael Bisping in mid-2016.

“I think I fight in Curitiba, in April, on the same card Fabricio Werdum fights Cain Velasquez. I think my opponent will be Michael Bisping.”

It did not take long before the statement got to the brash-talking Brit. Of course, he offered a colorful response.

 

First I've heard. Just leave the viagra out of it and I'm in.

In August, the Silva camp stated that the reason for the fighter’s positive drug test at UFC 183 last January was due to the use of “sexual performance” medication. He was subsequently slapped with a one year suspension by the Nevada Athletic Commission (with January as the effectivity date), making him eligible for competition by February of the coming year.
