Anderson Silva says UFC fans should 'forget about' a rematch with Vitor Belfort in boxing

Anderson Silva has no interest in fighting Vitor Belfort again, despite repeated calls for the pair to run it back in the boxing ring. 

Silva, 46, scored a sensational knockout over Tito Ortiz on the undercard of Belfort's comeback fight against Evander Holyfield on Saturday night. 

The former UFC middleweight champion knocked out his fellow Brazilian with a brutal front kick back at UFC 126 in February 2011. 

However, Silva has ruled out a future rematch with Silva, as he insists that his incredible finish could never be topped. 

He did however put forward his suggestion for an alternative future opponent for 'The Phenom'. 

“A fight that would be cool would be Vitor and Wanderlei Silva,” Silva told MMA Fighting.

“This fight would be spectacular. Everybody wants to see this fight.

“My opinion regarding a fight with Vitor, man, what would be more spectacular than the knockout I gave Vitor?

"Only if we enter the ring and I blow on him and he goes down.

"Outside of that, nothing cooler could happen. Forget about it, man. People have to forget about it. It’s over."

What is Anderson Silva's full name?

Silva (2-1, 1 KO) also issued an ultimatum to Belfort prior to his high-profile fight with Holyfield last weekend. 

“Unless he tattoos the ‘Spider Kick’ on his chest and writes ‘I love Anderson Silva’ right below, then it might happen,” he added.

“He must get the tattoo done before the fight.

"It must be on his chest, nicely done, really big, so everyone sees the kick.

"Other than that, there’s no way.”
