Former UFC Middleweight Champion, Anderson Silva, suffered his first loss in over seven years when he was knocked out by Chris Weidman at UFC 162. Now four months before the rematch, Silva talked about a conversation he had with Dana White, that motivated him to finish the remaining fights on his ten fight deal. “The first time in my life and my career I get knocked out and I’m not happy,” Silva explained. “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,” he explained. “I go for training. I pick up back my energy, the marital arts and the new Anderson is coming. You’ll see.” Silva is arguably one of the greatest combat athletes of all time, so it will be interesting to see how he rebounds in the rematch and his remaining fights.

Mayweather loves to talk, and sure, so does Anderson, but Mayweather’s talk may have finally ruined the love Anderson had/has for Mayweather. Hopping on Sirius XM, Anderson Silva came out and said “I no respect Mayweather.” Possibly because Mayweather talked crap on Anderson’s UFC title reign recently. Remember? This is what Mayweather said:

Sometimes fans ask the dumbest questions. Like this first one for example, would he considered fighting Jose Aldo. Come on bro he’s 40lbs lighters than Silva. If that’s the best question you can come up with then why would you bother calling in. Still always great to hear from the GOAT, and gotta be impressed with how far his English has come.
UFC 168 Weidman vs Silva...
I guess these two have a little beef because Floyd laughed when people were comparing his dominance in boxing to Silva dominance in UFC (until he went to sleep a couple of months ago).
Silva was on SiriusXM’s Shade 45 and had this to stay about Mayweather.
