Found January 20, 2013 on The Flying Knee MMA:
After Vitor Belfort decided to throw a monkey wrench in the UFC’s middleweight title picture with a head-kick knockout of British star Michael ‘The Count’ Bisping, the future is not so clear for the division’s kingpin Anderson Silva. The champ was expected to face Bisping later in the year if he got past Belfort and with no clear title contender lined up, it may be a while before we see the champ in the cage again.  Watch the interview clip below: When asked what is next for him: “I don’t know,” Silva told Heidi Androl on the post-fight show on FUEL TV, “I need to talk to Dana and Lorenzo.” When asked about the rumours that he had signed a 10-fight contract with the organization: “No for now,” he said. “This is not real, but I’ll go for my next conversation with Dana and Lorenzo. But, maybe. Maybe!” Courtesy of : Fuel TV Follow Karim Zidan (@TheFlyingKneeTO) for all the latest MMA news and updates.
