Machida Says Anderson Silva Will Step Aside For His Shot At The Title

“I always say Anderson is on another level. He was the champion for about six or seven years. We even talked about it. He said he already was the champ for a long time, that he wants to remain in the promotion and have super fights. And in case we have to fight, he said he’d even forgo any claim to the belt so I could have my shot.”

Obviously for this statement to hold any water Anderson Silva must first successfully defeat Chris Weidman next month. But if he does, sharing the division rankings with longtime friend and teammate, Lyoto Machida, poses an interesting problem for the pair.

Machida recently told us that he plans on contending for the title, even if that meant facing off with Anderson down the road. Now, in a recent interview with, he clears the air saying it will never come to that.

    I see you are a libturd spewing your nonsense. Grow up kid. You little shit go get a job and earn some of that stained money so you can quit sucking off your mommy and everybody else’s teets. little parasite.

    That sucks, I was hoping to see those two square off.

  4. KIDD433 says:

    I think it could still happen, but even so, theirs a lot of shit that can happen till then. Vitor is 1st in line and Silva is rematching Weidman. Machida still would have to beat Mousasi

  5. Jujitsu Player says:

    I would love to see this fight, I think Machida would take it 7 times out of 10. If he stays at 185lb he’s destined to hold the belt.
