Now this is interesting. Anderson Silva isn’t really someone who would make excuses, and this quote from a Portuguese MMA news outlet proves that, and we all remember the rumors of Silva being injured before the Weidman fight, now it’s coming true.
Anderson Silva has revealed that he was at “85%” against Weidman, and he had a cracked rib. Hmm. Here’s the quote.
“It is good to talk about it, because I was really hurt, no one touched on this subject, but this is no excuse for my performance. It was slightly below the rib that I had fractured before the first fight against Sonnen. And that’s it. I was 85% of my physical condition.”
“I can not talk about it because anything I talk can be used against me, it is past.”
“I’m fine now, Wednesday I start to train for the fight.”
What do you guys think?

Check out the live press conference from Sao Paulo, Brazil as the UFC reaches the final stop of their UFC 168 world tour to promote the rematch between Chris Weidman (10-0) and Anderson Silva (33-5) on December 28th. Silva, Weidman and UFC President Dana White are all expected to be in attendance. You can […]
Dana White, Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman are on a world tour right now, building up hype (as if they needed help) for their rematch at the end of the year at UFC 168, and yesterday they stopped in Sao Paulo, and i guess the Brazilian fans were kind of crappy to Anderson Silva, someone who has been vocal about his support of Brazil for years.
Can you believe this? What a finnicky...
Look at that picture. Look at it. Look at the bling, not around Anderson Silva’s shoulder. I still can’t believe it. Weidman is a monster, and something in my gut tells me he’s going to pull off the ‘upset’ again and beat Silva a second time. It’s rather incredible. But at the same time, how can I possibly bet against Anderson? It’s madness I tell you.
This should be an awesome fight, I just hope they stand and trade.

He has a 13-5 UFC record, is only a few fights removed from losing to Anderson Silva for the middleweight title, and has been cut, after going 3-1 in his last 4 fights, losing to Jacare Souza in Brazil last month. Apparently, Yushin Okami is just too expensive for the UFC, despite his #6 ranking.
