“I respect [Silva] a lot. As I said several times, I do not want to be the guy who beat Anderson, and do not want to be the guy who lost to him. Anderson is a great champion, I’m a great champion. We both… I don’t know. I don’t know. I’m not saying that the fight will not happen. It can happen. But it’s not something I’m chasing. I don’t believe that I need to fight with Anderson to be the best in the world.”
UFC light-heavyweight champion, Jon Jones, recently told Brazilian outlet Correio Braziliense that he doesn’t want to be the man to beat Anderson Silva.
