Marshall Zelaznik: I’d love to see something like Rampage Jackson vs. Anderson Silva
UK UFC President, Marshall Zelaznik reveals one of his dream match-up’s; former UFC light heavyweight champion, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson vs. current UFC middleweight champion, Anderson “The Spider” Silva.
Zelaznik, speaking via ESPN.co.uk, said:
“I’d love to see something like that happen (Jackson vs. Silva). Anderson, when he fights at light-heavyweight, nobody comes away complaining from his fights. He can obviously fight at either weight, but it’s almost as if the anticipation surrounding Anderson Silva only brings out the man we all imagine him to be when he takes these light-heavyweight challenges.”
“There’s such a size thing surrounding the GSP v Anderson situation. If you hang out with Anderson, he’s such a big guy. The difference between him and GSP is significant. Obviously that is a factor in this sport, can skill overcome size? But in this situation Anderson has the frame of a light-heavyweight.”
