Long-time UFC middleweight champion, Anderson “The Spider” Silva (33-4 MMA, 16-0 UFC), has gone a perfect 16-0 thus far in his UFC career and has looked almost unbeatable while fighting inside the octagon.
The 38 year-old, Silva, is currently preparing to face one of his biggest challenges to date in #1 contender Chris Weidman (9-0 MMA, 5-0 UFC).
But according to Silva’s manager, Ed Soares, it doesn’t matter who the opponent is, if Anderson is properly prepared and focused… He is unbeatable:
“Anybody can go out there and put on a fight. Chris Weidman is undefeated, he’s a tough guy and a fight is a fight, anything can happen. I believe in Anderson Silva. Anderson Silva is the best fighter on the planet. I think Anderson Silva is a bad fight for any fighter in any weight class. I’m not saying Anderson Silva is invincible.”
“Anderson Silva can be beat just like anyone else can get beat. But I think if Anderson Silva goes in there well trained and focused, I don’t think there’s a fighter on the planet that can beat him.”
Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman will meet in the main event of UFC 162 for the middleweight title. UFC 162 takes place July 6 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas Nevada.
