Anderson Silva: I Have No Intentions Of Fighting Weidman Because I Am Not A Fool | UFC NEWS
‘I think all athletes in this division will get their opportunity in going for the title. I don’t have any intention of fighting with him (Wiedman). I still think he has a lot to do in the UFC. I am in a comfortable position and I am no longer a child, I am 37 years old, he’s a kid that is starting. Obviously, this might happen, but, I have two fights on my contract and I think one of them will be with St. Pierre and I don’t really have an intention in fighting with him (Weidman) because I’m not a fool. I’m already an oldie, you know?’
The pound-for-pound king, Anderson Silva, talked about the potential middleweight title fight with Chris Weidman over the weekend at the UFC 153 post-fight press conference.
While fielding questions from the media he asserted his position and cited his age as a reason to not be foolish when picking opponents.
