Silva Promises a ‘New Anderson’ In Rematch With Weidman

“Sometimes you win, sometimes you no win. The new Anderson is coming… The first time in my life and my career I get knocked out and I’m not happy. The time I finished the fight, I’m no happy, but I go back to the hotel and three days Dana talked to me: ‘This is very important for your legacy. We need you back. We need you to go for a rematch.’ I talk to my coach, and my family. My coach say, ‘Yeah this is very important for you. They need you back. They need you to give for the fans one more fight. One more chance for the fans watching for the belt… I go to my grandmaster in Thailand. I go for training. I pick up back my energy, the martial arts and the new Anderson is coming. You’ll see.”

In a candid interview with Sirius XM “Fight Club,” former UFC champion, Anderson Silva made a promise to the fans, a promise of a new and improved version on himself.

In the first fight the majority of the MMA world pegged Weidman as the favorite and he proved them right, but in the rematch scheduled for UFC 168, will Silva be able to swing those odds in his favor?

  1. Nando says:

    Anderson’s tdd won’t let him be a “new fighter”. He taunts to goad people into a standup match with him. If he comes out aggressive, hands up, Weidman will blast a double leg right thru him

  2. UFC 84 Forever says:

    We’ll see I guess.

  3. CALI says:

    Thing is, it’s going to take the Old Anderson to beat him…

    Reply to nando is a f@g … Glad u don’t check back because this is an opinion based forum where ppl chime in what they think. Sounds like u got issues and it is a relief to know u won’t check In seeing as u are homophobic and probably confused… Nando is stating a point of belief, you are simply stating what you think of yourself! ” Psychology”

    Reply to nando is a f@g, not even brave enough to use your normal log in… Haha what a laugh… I’m sure nando could care less!

    Hell ya your new. You have a new lesion on your brain.

  7. 123 says:

    I hope he fights Vitor Belfort again

    • UFC 84 Forever says:

      Would love to see Spider vs. TRT Belfort…

      But then people would make excuses for a basically roided out Belfort, so I’m not sure if there’s a point anymore to a rematch…

        trt is legal it’s not roids dummy

        • TRT is not legal says:

          It is not legal thats why they have to go through a bunch of channels to get exemptions for it, and also if you get caught with it in your system with out the proper exemptions you get suspended. And it is a steroid, it ups your testosterone by thousands and your body cant naturally produce that much especially when you get older.

  8. Thesire says:

    Reinventing your style of fighting on a rematch/title fight probably isn’t the best idea, but then again I’m not Anderson silva and he’s been successful so well see what happens

  9. T.Daddy says:

    Silva Will make weidman his b.itch in the rematch

  10. 757 says:

    TRT is not a banned substance. The level is if not regulated correctly. ADMINISTERED CORRECTLY IT IS NOT A BANNED SUBSTANCE….DUMMY

  11. mixedmartialartstitleholder says:

    The old Anderson was a beast, the new one will be a complete monster he is coming with something to prove Chris will get some takedowns if it gets that far but in the end it will be Silva with his hand up
