Anderson Silva:
“I think it’s a very interesting fight, I talked to Nick’s manager a couple months ago, and Nick said, ‘OK, let’s go do it. Let’s talk to Dana (White).’ I’m just waiting for Dana.”

Nick hasn’t fought since the Silva bout in 2015 is retired according to teammate Gilbert Melendez:

Gilbert Melendez:
“Our boy, Nick, he’s been retired, I would love to see him come back, but last time I checked, he’s retired. I know If anyone could come back and do it and stay on track and everything, it’s him. I’d love to see him one day, if the fight is right, I think he’ll come back out, and if the contract’s right I think he’ll come back out. But last I’ve heard, he’s hung it up.”
