The Welterweight commented the Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen rematch and confirms his training partner Anderson Silva is working harder than ever and is highly motivated for the bout.

“Anderson wants this win more than ever.”

Silva says he is training with Anderson on a daily basis and that recently Anderson has been the first in the gym and last to leave.

“I’m training with Anderson everyday and I can say he’s really focused and motivated for this fight. He is the first to get in the gym and the last one to leave it. The training is over and he keeps training with the coach.”

When making his fight prediction Erick Silva was very confident in saying Anderson will get the knockout and he does not expect the bout to last very long.

“I bet it won’t go any longer than round one. Anderson Silva will knockout and show why he is the true champion.”
