Anderson Silva: This is why I want to fight Conor McGregor

In the co-main event, Anderson Silva will look for his first win since 2012 when he fights Derek Brunson.

Anderson Silva strode onto the stage toward his opponent, extended his hand and went for the hearty shake.

Holm was bloodied in the face and stopped by boxer Anne Sophie Mathis previously in her championship pro boxing career.

One of the middleweight divisions top contenders Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza is also back in action against Tim Boetsch on the main card.

Holm is set to face Germaine de Randamie at UFC 208 which happens on February 11 in Brooklyn.

Ahead of her historic title fight against Germaine de Randamie at UFC 208 in Brooklyn this weekend, "The Preacher's Daughter" once again stopped by Live with Kelly for a chat with host Kelly Ripa and her husband Mark Consuelos.

"I think five more years", he said, laughing.

Since that shocking win, however, Holm has dropped back-to-back bouts, surrendering the title via fifth-round submission to Miesha Tate at March 2016's UFC 196 and dropping a decision to No. 1-ranked bantamweight Valentina Shevchenko last July.

If the fight does get made, it would put the brakes on any potential McGregor v Silva bout. "I definitely got to go out there and be more patient than I was in my previous fight".

UFC 208 on Saturday night will be the promotion's first pay-per-view event in over two months.

All that is except for Holly Holm who believes retirement will not last forever, Rolling Stone reported.

"I bet she feels like she wants to focus on some other things right now - going from that big high to a big low".
