Tom Watson is still interested in a fight with Wanderlei Silva. The Brit thinks if he called Silva out with some more anger than maybe he wouldn’t be looking for a fight at the moment.
“From my point of view, I go online and I say, ‘Wanderlei, you’re a legend,” said Watson to MMA Junkie. “Please can I fight you?’ Nobody cares. If I go in there and say, ‘Wanderlei, come to fight and I’ll knock you out’ – then maybe we’ll fight.”
In Silva’s return to the Octagon and Japan, he knocked Brian Stann out in round two. He took Fight of the Night and Knockout of the Night for that performance.
Watson had similar results when he finished Stanislav Nedkov in February to up his record to 16-5.
The two currently have no date for their return or opponent.
