“Old” and expensive. Fedor Emelianenko could fight Anderson Silva

Bellator president says he’s in talks with former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva:
“We offered Silva a fight against Fedor Emelianenko under MMA rules. We didn’t have any serious discussions about money or anything like that, but there was contact from our side. We wanted to know what Silva thought about it. He planned to focus entirely on boxing. Let’s see how far he can go.
We can do this fight in Japan or in New York at Madison Square Garden. This is a matchup that everyone would love to see. The best fighter will face the second best in the cage.
It will be difficult to agree on a weight class. Anderson and I had a brief conversation and came up with a solid answer, so I dropped the idea, but I hope we can get back to him as soon as possible.
Sounds great, but just… who cares about a fight like that anymore? to anyone Emelianenko is now forty-five and Silva is forty-seven. Another important point is… the Brazilian has always fought in the welterweight category. Imagine: heavyweight vs. middleweight, intriguing?
Japan or the United States
Another awkward moment. Will Fedor Emelianenko fight his last fight in Japan or the United States? You understand that Russia will not even be given an official live broadcast signal…
No thanks, I really don’t want to see a fight like that.
