"Maybe a little bit"...
Anderson Silva recently spoke with MMAjunkie about his fight with Chris Weidman at UFC 168. Check out the highlights:
On whether he took being champion for granted against Weidman: "Maybe a little bit."
On his loss to Weidman: "The last fight is in the past. I'm really looking forward to this next fight, and everything is going to be different. Obviously we made a few changes. When you see a mistake, you've got to get back and see what that mistake is and change a few things. But like I said, that's in the past, and everything is going to be different from now on."
On his approach to the fight compared to the first one: "There's nothing that can be changed. Everything was going well."
On being motivated: "I'm motivated by the will and the desire to do what I love, which is to train and to fight. There's no reason to wait for fight night. I feel very happy right now. I'm in a great mood, and I'm training harder than ever. There's no reason for anything to go wrong, and I'm 100 percent sure I'm going to win. There's not much left to be said. I just thank my fans. On the 28th, everyone make sure to tune in."
