Anderson Silva: I'm going to give back the knockout


Former UFC middleweight champion Anderson appeared on Ariel Helwani's The MMA Hour, and explained how he plans to beat currrent champion Chris Weidman on Dec. 28, said he doesn't need a devastating win over Weidman to prove he is the best, and said Steven Seagal is not his coach.

"I (will) give back the knockout," said Silva. "I’m working hard now. Chris is the new champion and is a great fighter, but I'm training hard. The new Anderson is coming."

"I (will) train more jiu-jitsu because Weidman come to fight me and (won’t) stand up together in this fight. Go for the ground, go for the ground. I train more jiu-jitsu, and ninjitsu."

"I'm working hard for a long time. My big goal is train the kids, new athletes coming. I’m normal guy. Sometimes I have good day, sometimes I don't have good day. People will have the new chance to see the real Anderson. It’s normal."

"I have a good relationship with master Seagal. He is a great man, great master, but I worked hard the front kick for a long time. I started martial arts and my first master showed me the movement. I've trained Capoeira, Taekwondo, but one day master Steven Seagal came to the academy, watched the training, watched my front kick and said ‘you move (to) the left’ and that's it. (He doesn’t) showed the kick and bla, bla, bla. He's not my coach, he's my friend."

I watched the Anderson interview with Karen Bryant on UFC Tonight last night and he still is exhibiting that same "I think this is all a joke" behavior.  When asked about superfights, he said the only one he wants is Roy Jones, Jr. and to ask Dana White why that hasn't happened.  I don't expect him to take the Weidman rematch seriously at all and he'll lose to just collect his check.  Sad.

People need to forget about Weidmans KO. Weidman was starting to crush Andy on the ground and landed hard hard shots. That is much more likely to happen than Weidman getting another KO. Having said that, I'm really hoping Anderson pulls off a KO.

If Anderson keeps his hands up the underhooks will not be there when Weidman shoots, I think the hands down approach assists with sprawling....Weidman will punish silva on the ground again, to a hard fought decision imo....
