Anderson Silva Says He Is Bringing A “New Anderson” To His UFC 168 Fight Against Chris Weidman

Former UFC middleweight champion, Anderson Silva made some comments about the changes he has been making to his training routine before his UFC 168 rematch with Chris Weidman on December 28th in Las Vegas, Nevada, hes also letting Weidman know it will be a different man he is fighting come December.

Silva, speaking during Sirius XM Fight Club said:

“Sometimes you win, sometimes you no win. The new Anderson is coming. I don’t disrespect my opponents. This is my strategy, my style of fight. People say ‘Anderson no respect the opponent, no respect Chris Weidman.’ This is not real. I respect Chris Weidman. I respect my opponent.”

“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 have one more fight for Chris Weidman. It’s part of my contract. I win, no win. I straight my focus for the next and the new fights. I go to my grandmaster in Thailand. I go for training. I pick up back my energy, the marital arts and the new Anderson is coming. You’ll see.”
