Anderson Silva is regarded as one of the all-time greats in the world of MMA who competed against several top names in the MMA world when he used to be active. Silva was released from the UFC last year in November after he lost to Uriah Hall in his final match.
He is set to face off against Julio César Chávez Jr., son of the legendary boxer Julio Cesar Chavez Sr. on June 19. Now it seems Julio César Chávez Jr has already thought of who his next opponent could be after Anderson Silva.
