Wanderlei Silva Set To Receive Massive $1 million Payday For Rampage Fight

MMA veterans Wanderlei Silva and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson have battled it out on three different occasions, with Silva having earned two victories over his opponent. Now a decade later, the two fighters are set to throw down a fourth time at Bellator 206 on Sept. 29.

Speaking to Combate, Wanderlei Silva has come forward to reveal that Bellator President Scott Coker offered him $1 million to fight a Rampage Jackson.

“I was offered one million dollars. Scott called me up and said ‘I’ll give you a million dollars to fight Rampage’. I was like ‘I’m not doing anything anyway’. I’m already training again and I feel good. I’m going to do this fight and then I might fight again in December.”

“You can expect a great Wanderlei. I feel well, training is going well. I’m more experience, I’m fighting more intelligently and aggressively. I think it’s going to be a great fight. He better train, because I’m sharp and I’m going for the knockout. I don’t know if he’ll be man enough to accept a striking match against me. I hope so. If he does, we’ll have a great fight.”
