Anderson Silva not interested in retiring, calls for Nick Diaz rematch
Two months after threatening to retire from MMA, Anderson Silva is calling for a rematch with Nick Diaz, according to MMAJunkie.
“I believe this was one of the best fights in the history of this sport,” Silva wrote to Diaz on his Instagram account. “With all my respect Nick. Let’s show how it’s done. I will wait your reply, maximum respect to the Diaz family.”
Silva and Diaz met two years ago at UFC 183. The fight was crucial for both fighters. Silva had lost his title at UFC 162 after an upset knockout at the hands of Chris Weidman and then broken his leg in a rematch. Diaz hadn’t fought since a decision loss to now-former welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre prompted him to walk away from the sport.
