Anderson Silva indicates he’d love to have a crack at “The Ultimate Fighter” down the line

January 18, 2011 All MMA News, UFC  Comments 

UFC middleweight champion, Anderson Silva has become the latest high profile fighter to put his name forward for a future coaching role on “The Ultimate Fighter” reality show, sparking speculation as to who would be his opposite number.

Speaking via, Silva said:

“I love training with other fighters and would be honoured.”

Silva is set to go head-to-head with former 205 pound champion, Vitor Belfort in just a couple of weeks time, but I’m sure the promotion will have one eye on pairing “The Spider” up with former adversary, Chael Sonnen once the American’s legal problems have been straightened out. Stay tuned to MMABay for more on this as we get it.
