Ochocinco asks for UFC fight
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver
In a series of tweets, Ochocinco has said he wants to try an MMA fight against some of the sport's elite athletes, with the proceeds going to charity.
The first tweet from Ochocinco came in response to ESPN's Sports Nation tweeting that
Ochocinco (apparently unaware that Fedor doesn't fight in the UFC) then said that if Ultimate Fighting Championship President Dana White could make the fight happen, he'd gladly do it: "Get in touch with Dana White and I'll fight them to raise money for a charity of my choice <--I'm serious," Ochocinco tweeted.
And he wasn't done there. Ochocinco then started addressing White on Twitter directly, noting that he'd like to have a fight with UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva.
"Dana this Ocho Cinco, I want to fight your #1 and #2 best fighters asap, exhibition to raise money for a charity of choice!!!!!!,"
Obviously, Ochocinco is never going to fight in the UFC. It would be a violation of the terms of his NFL contract, and he'd get crushed. But Ochocinco always manages to entertain those who follow him on Twitter.
