Chad Ochocinco to fight Anderson Silva?

Found this on Cage Potato.

Big news, Potato Nation. I was just clicking around Twitter, you know, waiting for my Hot Pocket to cook and reading every inane thought that pops into War Machine's head, when I saw that Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco has formally challenged Anderson Silva to a fight in the UFC and Dana White, presumably after doing a thorough check with Silva's management, accepted the offer. Boom! January 2nd, UFC 108 in Las Vegas, Chad Ochocinco vs. Anderson Silva for the middleweight strap. Done deal.

Now, I know what you're thinking. This seems just a little far-fetched. I mean, isn't Silva too hurt to fight in January? And not only does Ochocinco not have any professional MMA fights, much less a contract with the UFC, but the Bengals actually have their last game of the season the very next day at the New York Jets. How's he going to swing that? The answer is, I don't know and I don't care. It must be true because it was on freaking Twitter, the most trusted source of information/self-absorbed sentence fragments of our time.

According to Ochocinco, he's "dead serious" and has "a good chance at winning against Silva." And why not? One of the world's best pound-for-pound fighters, if not the best, facing an NFL wide receiver who's never fought professionally, sounds like a totally serious, not at all absurd, fight of the year candidate to me. I just wonder how current UFC 108 headliners Cain Velasquez, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Rashad Evans, and Thiago Silva are going to feel when they see this:

What the hell is going on? I'm almost certain that this is some kind of joke and there is no possibiltiy of this happening but I guess maybe there is a slight possibility that this ridiculous match up can happen.

It's here, too.,201936

Seems Chad's been arguing with/teasing Rashad over Twitter, as well.

But yeah, this will never happen. Even if he was serious, I doubt the Bengals would allow it.
