UFC middleweight Wanderlei Silva recently told Fighter’s only magazine that he would like the last fight of his career to be against long-term rival Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson.
“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 said, adding with a laugh: “This history don’t stop.”
Silva won the first two matches against Rampage when they both fought for Japan’s ill-fated Pride organization. Meanwhile, Jackson dramatically beat Silva in in their third bout at UFC 92.
Wanderlei Silva maintains that he doesn’t have a problem with Jackson and the aggression is all apart of the preparation for the fight. “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.”
