Anderson Silva is throwing his name in the hat for a potential fight with Conor McGregor.

“The Notorious” went on social media earlier this week to debate who’s the greatest MMA fighter of all-time, having “The Spider” sitting at No. 1. It didn’t take long for the Brazilian to once again issue a respectful challenge towards the Irish superstar.

“I have a huge admiration for the great athlete that Conor is and I believe this superfight would be something historic for the sport, neither of us has anything else to prove,” Silva wrote in Portuguese. “I believe UFC and (MMA) fans would like to watch this great martial spectacle, testing my martial skills against him would be fantastic.”

Silva suggested the contest to go down in a 176.37-pound (80kg) catchweight.

McGregor replied to his message.
