Anderson Silva Changes Mind, Says He Would Fight Lyoto Or Jacare

At one point Anderson Silva refused to fight his ‘Team Black House’ training partners, Lyoto Machida and Jacare Souza. But now that they are both in the UFC’s middleweight division, they have frequently said they would fight Anderson when asked by the MMA media.

Those comments have been seen by Silva, resulting in him changing his mind. Heres what he had to say:

“That is something that I have always said, about not fighting a training partner, but it isn’t reciprocal. Inside Team Nogueira we follow this but Lyoto isn’t from Team Nogueira and neither is Jacare then it’s a vague situation. In all their interviews they said clearly that they would fight me so I can’t think differently. I don’t want to fight a friend, mainly Lyoto, but if I in the future I have credentials to fight for the belt and we have to fight, we will fight.”
