Wanderlei Silva ready to fight 'whoever the UFC wants' following UFC 139 destruction of Cung Le (Video)

"I love to fight, I'm fighting because I love it. My motivation is my fans. I don't do this for money. I love to make my fans happy. I'm so glad to be working for the UFC, whatever the boss wants for me I'll do. I'll fight who he wants."

Former PRIDE star and UFC fan favorite Wanderlei Silva got back into the win column at UFC 139 last weekend, in the co-main event opposite San Shou striker and former Strikeforce middleweight champion Cung Le. The 185-pound tilt, which took place at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California, saw "The Axe Murder" destroy his foe with a lethal combination of punches, elbows and knees. So where does he go from here? Silva says he'll fight whoever the promotion wants him to. Anyone want to see a Vitor Belfort rematch? Who do you, as a fan, want to see him challenge next?
