Per Combate, Silva disclosed that he’s not only negotiating with Bellator and Rizin, but he’s also looking at a possible bout with Fedor Emelianenko. “I was angry with everything, having to go to Supreme Court, going to the justice, attorneys, all of it took my desire to fight off. I was upset with that since I am an idol, I’m recognized all around the Earth, and I wish to be treated as such, not as an exaggeration. The commission produces difficulties so they can think of a solution. In my view, that’s completely wrong. They should review they entire statute and laws, because that is wrong. I had a meeting with Nobuyuki Sakakibara, and he’s very interested in bringing me back to Japan, he explained the Japanese are anxious to see me compete . We are also flirting with Bellator,” he explained with a laugh. “They want to create a deal together so I can struggle in Japan and here in the USA, and I would struggle for both promotions. I am negotiating an exhibition struggle in Rizin on April 17. They provided me a jiu-jitsu match, two versus two. It’d be Team Wanderlei, Andre Dida and I, against a team from Japan. I’m also negotiating a tournament in Japan, in which I’d struggle in September and return in December for 2 fights in 1 night. That is the plan for 2016.” I truly want to fight in Japan. The Japanese promotion created Wanderlei Silva… I finished my career some time ago for disgust, not because I couldn’t do it physically or mentally, but also for disgust. However, I believe this time made me actually like it again, and I am really happy that I am feeling this desire to fight . As I said, I’m in negotiation to come back to battling in Japan and I truly want huge challenges. There is a chance of combating Fedor, who’s an opponent I’d really like to fight. I’m not only speaking, but can not be the initial person, right?” Said”The Axe Murderer”. “Now I haven’t fought in a couple of decades, I can’t get him right away. I want to do some fights first, get my rhythm back, and when the promotion thinks it’s time and I feel I’m in a fantastic rhythm, I would really want to test myself against him, for sure. I’ve fought the very best in the world . I’d really like to check myself . I don’t have a thing against Fedor, but I’d like to test myself and see how it goes” Cyril Asker vs. Jared Cannonier set for UFC Fight Night 86 UFC officials announced Monday a heavyweight matchup between Cyril Asker vs. Jared Cannonier was added to the April UFC card at Croatia.
