- Anderson Silva recently spoke about this weekend's rematch with Chris Weidman. Here are the highlights…
On Being Himself: "There was one more thing: I learned that I have to be myself. I always have to be me."
On The First Fight: "From the moment that a fight ends, that fight is in the past, win or lose," Silva said. "Even when I was winning my fights, once it's over, it's over. It's in the past, and you've got to look forward. It's no different with this fight. When it was over, it was over, and now I'm looking forward to the next one."
His Thoughts On The Rematch: "It's definitely a big fight," Silva said. "It's an important fight. It's something people have been waiting to watch. They want confirmation that Chris is the real deal. But a fight is a fight. "All that changes is the date and the opponent. The octagon is still the same, and the atmosphere is always the same."
His Final Comments: "I don't think I have anything to prove to anyone, but I'm very motivated."
