Soares: Anderson Silva never turns down fights

source: Sirus XM Sports

"I mean, you know what? There's a lot of things going on. I mean as far as competitors. I think all of them, I look at Anderson's career and I just want Anderson being involved in the biggest fights possible.

Unfortunately, in the middleweight division right now, it's kind of a little bit murky in that area because the guys who are out there earning their shots aren't very potentially big fights. There's just not a huge amount of fights right now. So I think we need the dust to settle a little bit, let Anderson let his body rest. He's not a young guy anymore, he's 37 years old and he wants to take some time between his fights.

At the end of the day whoever the UFC puts in front of us, we've never turned down a fight. Not only Anderson but none of our fighters have ever turned down a fight. Whoever the UFC deems is best then we'll go ahead and take it. We'll cross that bridge when it comes."

  At first you are corect, but we are not talking about a year ago, we are talking about now.  Thanks.  I love your wild speculation "with enough money it is possible" like you have any clue what either of these guys would do... No one cares what a stalker on a forum wants. Jon  Jones has flat out said, MOST RECENTLY, that he doe snot want to fight Anderson. Also most recently, GSP/Firaz say they want the Anderson fight. The UFC brass have also said they want the GSP fight. All three parties involved want GSP/Andy. NONE of the three parties involved want Jones/Andy.  You have no clue what you're talking about.

Multiple times? As far as I know Hendo only turned down Lil Nog because it didn't make sense, and he's right it didn't and doesn't even now. No offense to Lil Nog but he isn't a top guy anymore and won't make Hendo closer to a title shot then, nor it can improve his legacy at this point of his career.

It seems Anderson's warming up to the idea of fighting Jones: a miracle of Machida beating Jones and Condit beating GSP, IMO Anderson's plan all along was to defeat BOTH GSP and Jones then retire.

Are you replying to me about Anderson volunteering himself to save UFC 151 and fight any LHW besides the Jones? Well in that case, how do you explain Dana White appreciating Anderson's offer then?

There was no way he was getting a fight,and if you think he did not know that, your stupid.
