Ariel Helwani revealed today on Twitter that GOAT middleweight- Anderson Silva has been offered an mma fight in Japan against GOAT heavyweight- Fedor Emelianenko. It’s not officially in the works yet, silva has an upcoming boxing match with Jake Paul, but Coker wants to bring this battle of GOATs.
Many people seem very excited about this prospect; but many don’t like the idea of the huge weigh discrepancy. Silva has been fighting at as low as 180 recently while Fedor is 230lbs. Silva has fought at welterweight, middlweight and light heavyweight, having great success in all but never fought at heavyweight.
