One thing is certain in the UFC, when you are a fighter and a big opportunity is on the table you should always throw your hat into the octagon. Former middleweight champion Anderson Silva surprised fans around the world when he said he didn’t want a rematch with Chris Weidman, and at least one middleweight heard him. Mark Munoz, who picked up a win over Tim Boetsch, was on the deus sitting inches from Silva at the UFC 162: Silva Vs Weidman post fight press conference and did just that.
“If Anderson doesn’t fight Chris I would love to step in. This was the real Mark Munoz tonight. When I fought Chris, I actually had some adversity fighting him. I would really love a rematch with him if Anderson doesn’t take it.”
“I was disappointed because I know what Anderson can do and what he’s capable of. He got caught tonight. But he’ll be back, though. He’s a champion. He’s been there for so long, I told him I want to train with him, and he said he’ll come train.”
