Anderson Silva: ‘Weidman Rematch For My Legacy’

December 19, 2013 10:57 am by BJPENN.COM News

“Sometimes you have good days for working, sometimes you have bad days for working,” said Silva. “My last fight was a bad day.”

“I watch the last fight. And I see my technique and I talk to my friends and my coach and I don’t change too much. I train hard my mental because my mental was bad.”

“This is very important for me. For my family, my coach, for my legacy, this is very important.”

“So the people, maybe in five or 10 years, the people say ‘my gosh, this guy changed the sport. For five years this guy fight for the best fight for the people.’ In Brazil, I have a program for kids and I see the kids, ‘oh my gosh, one day I go to fight because you changed my life.’ This is more important to me, to change kids’ lives, than to beat Chris Weidman.”

Long reigning, pound-for-pound king, Anderson Silva, recently held a media day at his Muay Thai college in Southern California.

During his Q&A session he touched on the importance of next week’s UFC 168 main event rematch against new champ, Chris Weidman.

Can Silva do it? Will he be able to redeem himself against the New York based champion?
