Chris Leben wants Wanderlei Silva on TUF and inside the Octagon

UFC middleweight, Chris Leben called out former PRIDE champion, Wanderlei Silva to go head-to-head as a coach on “The Ultimate Fighter” leading up to a war inside the Octagon.

Leben, speaking via UFC.com, said:

“It’s never happened before. Nobody has fought this close together in the UFC and I won them both. It’s just a reflection of the support group, the team I have around me. This is crazy, I mean Wanderlei Silva got hurt, I stepped in and I fought one of the toughest guys in the world. I’m just so excited. The fact of the matter is I just beat Wanderlei Silva’s opponent. I think I should have him next. I think they should put us both on the (TUF) show, let us battle it out on the show, then put us in the cage and let us battle it out there.”
