Developing: Anderson Silva Seeks Bout With Connor McGregor

Yesterday former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva called out the UFC’s current lightweight champion to a fight. Here's the scoop from Champions:

Now that I’m old, I’m beginning to challenge everyone,” Silva told Brazilian outlet Globo. “I want to beat this dwarf … what’s the boy’s name again? McGregor. It is not provocation. It’s just that I forget, I’m old. Old men know what it’s like. I have this urge to test myself against him. I think he’s a guy who has an unusual ability. I do not know if he would reach a weight of 178 pounds, which is the weight I can get to, but it’s a guy I’d like to test myself before I end my career.”
