Anderson Silva has olympic aspirations
 
Quote:

It would be a challenge in my career, and Id like that. Participating in a competition like this is something really lacking for me, being an Olympian. I do not know if I would get used condition, the medal would be like the belt a consequence, but it would be great.

UFC middleweight champion, Anderson Silva, recently told the Brazilian media that he would like to try and compete in the Olympics when they come to Brazil. The article states that the pound-for-pound king would throw his hat in the disciplines of either boxing or Taekwondo.

I love this guy. That would break all kinds of Olympic viewership records IMO.

I have a feeling Anderson might be going for it. This isn't the first time he's opened up about boxing and he isn't getting any younger.
