lan Oliveira: What did you think of Anderson Silva’s showing at UFC 153?

Wanderlei Silva: I think every sport has a guy who is different. Soccer had Pele, Formula 1 had Ayrton Senna, and MMA has Anderson. He is different, but it did not start now. He trained at a gym in a small neighborhood in Curitiba and was very dedicated. You don't make an Anderson Silva in one day. The lesson he leaves is the self-dedication. He who trains like Anderson Silva has many chances to be like him. Do not let success or the money that comes with winning change your mind. He has been a UFC champion for so long, and he still trains hard.

IADid you get nervous seeing Anderson dodging Stephan Bonnar’s punches that way, when some blows connected?

WS: The risk there was that he might be hit on the chin and knocked out, but Anderson is a man secure in what he does; he's on another level. He serves as an example for many people, for young fighters like Jon Jones.”

IA: When do you want to fight again, and in what weight division?

WS: I want to either fight a catchweight bout at 198 pounds (93 kg) or at light heavyweight. At middleweight, I’m very hungry (laughs). Right now, I'm doing weight training and some shadow boxing. I'm kind of on vacation now, paying attention to the family, but next year the Wand is back.

IA: Whom would you like to face when you return?

WS:  I'll face whomever the UFC wants.

BoilerBrawnByBeatdown - Wand vs Maldonado

I respectfully disagree.

Wand's best years are behind him, I want big fights for him.

Wand sees how easily Chael and Vitor got their shots at Jones so he's gonna give it a shot lol. Wand vs Couture number one contender match in 2013 mark my words. Phone Post

"Wand sees how easily Chael and Vitor got their shots at Jones so he's gonna give it a shot lol."

I wouldn't mind seeing it. Wand isn't going to be timid like Belfort and he has underrated takedown defense and ground game. Unlikely to be KO'd, major KO threat himself.

What? I haven't seen anyone else do jack shit against Jones, why not let Wand try? The guy who most say supposedly did the best against Jones, Lyoto, got choked unconscious STANDING in round 2. How can Wand possibly do worse than that? And Jones is less likely than most to give Wand another brutal KO loss. Belfort was frustrating to watch because there were a lot of standing exchanges and he just did not throw punches. Wand would.

 

"This, Wand gets nowhere near Bones and gets elbowed stupid like the rest"

So you don't want to see a legend like Wand get that big fight, big payday, and chance for an epic underdog win, but you do want to line up to see "the rest" get elbowed stupid?

Anyway, I didn't say "omg make this fight", I said I wouldn't mind seeing it.

Nah Orcus, I would enjoy seeing I'm just not giving him any chance in hell.

 

I would love Wand to beat Phony Jonsey, but he's not what he once was at all.

Yeah, I don't give anyone a chance really. Maybe Phil Davis with more time, but getting handily outwrestled by Rashad doesn't bode well for him at all in the takedown department, and he certainly can't hang with Jon standing. I don't think Gustafsson has much shot if any, Jon will just take him down and pound him out.
