Anderson Silva was in the UK last week and conducted some seminars in the London area.
First he was at Urban Kings, where Fighters Only spoke to him, then he was at Lions Pride Gym, where London site GiveMeSport caught up with him.
“My opinion - the people always say ‘superfight, superfight’ but where are the chances for the new guys to come?” he said when asked about superfights with Jon Jones et al.
“I’m ready for fight for Jon Jones, Georges St Pierre but in my academy, Minatouro, Glover and the other fighters in this class for Jon Jones. George St Pierre is a different class. I have my problems in my class.”
“Yeah it’s good for business but is no good for the other’s guy fight. I go to fight Georges St Pierre, he cuts up, I cut down. I finish the fight. I go to fight Jon Jones, I finish the fight. Who’s next? No have! My opinion, this is perfect bullshit.”
Silva rematches Chris Weidman at UFC 168 on December 28. He lost the middleweight title to Weidman by way of second-round KO earlier this year in what was one of the biggest upsets the sport has witnessed in recent times.
