Chris Weidman Feels Anderson Silva is Avoiding Him
Posted by Larry Csonka on 01.29.2013

- Chris Weidman (9-0 MMA, 5-0 UFC) recently discussed wanting a title shot against Anderson Silva. Here are the highlights…

On Silva Avoiding Him: "It seems like he's avoiding it at all costs at this point. I'm a big, strong, young, athletic wrestler with good submissions. I think it's a bad matchup for him, I think he knows that, and he's making millions of dollars outside the cage being the undefeated UFC champion – untouchable. And if Chris Weidman, who a lot of people don't know, goes in there and takes that away from him, it's not good for him."

On The Middleweight Division: "I really wanted that fight with Boetsch," Weidman said. "I think it was a good time for me to shine, and it really just solidified the fact that I want Anderson Silva. But I think everything happens for a reason. Somehow, I'm back in this position of being No. 1 contender again with Bisping losing."

On Silva's Camp Wanting a Fight With Cung Le: "I mean, I guess if I was him, I'd rather fight him (than me), too," Weidman said. "I mean, no disrespect to Cung Le, but that's a good matchup for him. I think if Dana White wants (me fighting Silva) to happen and the UFC wants to make it happen, it'll happen. But it's a little different with Anderson, him being who he is."

OnWhen He Could Fight Silva: "I just had shoulder surgery and I'm two months in from the operation, and in another two months I'll be 100 percent," he said. "So I'm looking at July 4 weekend, Anderson Silva, and give him an immediate rematch in November at Madison Square Garden."
