Former UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva says his biggest dream, as of now, is to win an Oscar.
“My biggest dream, right now, is to maybe win an Oscar,” Silva told Combate. “I got some auditions to do in Hollywood. I wrote a script for a series and Netflix bought it, thank God. I got other projects apart from fighting. It was always my dream to become an action movie actor. I have been studying that for a while and now things are finally happening.”
Silva revealed he wrote an action series that was picked up by Netflix. He also said his series has nothing to do with fighting.
“It’s an action show, but it has nothing to do with fighting,” Silva said. “It doesn’t have a name yet, we’re still adapting it to script and we’ll settle on a name once it’s all done. I had to stop for awhile, but I’m always working on it, you know, it’s annoying. I’m always writing, putting ideas on paper, before I go to bed and after I wake up.”
Silva is scheduled to fight Derek Brunson in the co-main event of UFC 208 on Feb. 11 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Holly Holm will fight Germaine de Randamie for the inaugural UFC Women’s Featherweight Championship in the main event.
