Silva: Weidman needs to work on his striking, I need to work on my wrestling

UFC middleweight Champion Anderson Silva fights undefeated Chris Weidman at the UFC’s annual Fourth of July weekend megashow on July 6, 2013, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

UFC commentator Joe Rogan describes Anderson Silva as “the greatest martial artist the world has ever known.”

In the latest promo from the UFC, Silva talks about the fight.

“I’ve been waiting for the fight for a long time,” said Silva. “I believe if you train 100%, your results will be 100%. Everything that I do in the fight are the things that i’ve trained. I will be prepared to fight.

“Weidman has got good jiu-jitsu, and great wrestling. He needs to work with his stand up.

“Wrestling is not my best strength, and I need to work on my wrestling. You have to be able to combine all the martial arts to be successful.”

“Every fighter makes mistakes. I just have to look for the right opportunity to capitalize on his mistakes. Everyone has their strong points. Everyone has their weak points…”
