Default Ochocinco asks for UFC fight

I saw this just a few minutes ago on Headline News...Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson (yes, I refuse to call him by his new legal name) is calling out Anderson Silva, Brock Lesnar, and/or Fedor, LOL. Granted, it's a charity event, but still.

If he could only get his wish. I can't stand this guy and would love to see him get flattened.

Ochocinco asks for UFC fight

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco has found yet another way to draw attention to himself on Twitter, this time asking the president of the UFC to give him a fight in the Octagon.

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 Fedor Emelianenko and Brock Lesnar are regarded as the Top 2 heavyweights in MMA. Ochocinco responded to that by tweeting, "I'll fight either one of them right now!!"

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!!!!!!," Ochocinco tweeted. "matter of fact I want Anderson Spider Silva---please don't ignore me or you'll have to fight me yourself!!! Sincerely Esteban "

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.

Dana should either ignore him or tell him to earn his way to the UFC! Probably ignoring him would be smartest! Sounds like the guy's a Joke anyway! You don't go and call out the top fighters when you ain't even got a good MMA record. Then for him to call out both HW and a MW is crazy!

I wonder if the "charity of his choice" is the Ocho Cinco foundation.

I actually would love it if Dana set this up. I'd love to see Ocho get KO'd. At least it'd be somethign on the entertainment scale hahaha

I think Dana should set up a celebrity deathmatch between Chad & Jay-Z (weren't he & Fiddy Cent supposedly turning pro in MMA?)

first of all, shouldn't his nickname be ochenta y cinco???

second of all, if it truly is for charity (cuz i think he is making like 12 mill or so this year)
does he think anderson is going to take it easy on him? or if this is an exhibition, he is just going to look stupid the entire fight ... either way, his antics on the field make me laugh ... .they need more guys like him and TO keeping things lively ...

Spot on! Maybe he's gotten hit in the head too many times and doesn't realize what he's sayiing.

OTOH, he could just be a publicity ho.

Maybe he'll start a foundation to teach ignorant Americans how to count to 100 in Spanish.

For those who don't get that joke, it's because "Ohco Cinco" means "8" and "5", when the correct is ochenta y cinco. It just makes him sound even more stupid calling it "ocho cinco".
