Per Combate, Silva revealed that he is not only negotiating with Bellator and Rizin, but he’s also looking at a possible bout with Fedor Emelianenko. “I was angry with everything, needing to go to Supreme Court, going to the justice, attorneys, it all took my urge to fight away. I was upset with all that because I am an idol, I’m understood all over the world, and I wish to be treated as such, not as an outlaw. The commission creates difficulties so they can come up with a solution. In my opinion, that’s entirely wrong. They should review they entire statute and legislation, because that’s wrong. I had a meeting with Nobuyuki Sakakibara, and he’s very interested in bringing me back to Japan, he said the Japanese are worried to see me compete . We are also flirting with Bellator,” he explained with a laugh. “They wish to make a deal together so that I will fight in Japan and here in the USA, and I’d struggle for both promotions. I’m negotiating an exhibition struggle in Rizin on April 17. They offered me a jiu-jitsu match, two versus two. It would be Team Wanderlei, Andre Dida and that I, against a team from Japan. I am also negotiating a championship in Japan, in which I’d struggle in September and come back in December for two fights in 1 night. That is the plan for 2016.” I truly want to fight again in Japan. The Japanese promotion created Wanderlei Silva… I finished my career some time ago for disgust, not since I couldn’t do it physically or mentally, but also for disgust. However, I believe this time off made me actually like it again, and I am really happy that I’m feeling this desire to fight again. As I said, I’m in negotiation to come back to fighting in Japan and I really want big challenges. There’s a possibility of combating Fedor, who’s an opponent I’d really like to fight. I’m not just talking, but can’t be the initial one, correct?” Said”The Axe Murderer”. “Now that I haven’t fought in a couple of decades, I can’t get him immediately. I want to do a few fights first, get my rhythm back, and once the promotion thinks it’s time and I feel I’m in a good rhythm, I would really need to test myself , for sure. I have fought the very best in the world but him. I would really like to check myself against him. I don’t have a thing against Fedor, but I would 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 involving Cyril Asker vs. Jared Cannonier was added to the April UFC card in Croatia.
