Sounds like he still wants the fight... but at the end of next year.

via GloboEsporte.com 

 
“I am on vacation from fighting, I think I will return only in the end of the next year. I have personal projects ongoing. Tomorrow I’m embarking to Los Angeles to attend the arrangements of the academy we’re setting up there,” he said.
 
“I will go to Los Angeles and then I will go to Canada for UFC 154. I’m going to stay there to film an action movie that me and Lyoto will participate in [along with Steven Seagal]. But it is not my character to step in there and call somebody out. So I think this won’t happen. I fact I don’t just think, I am sure!” he explains.
 
“My focus is on my personal projects and on the fight versus Georges St-Pierre. If the UFC wants to make an ínterim bout while I am away, it is up to them. I don’t know if it will have any meaning but they can do whatever they want. I am in a comfort zone, so I am not concerned about it,” he said.

Trying to start up some shit between fighters = The UFC

Trying to live a peaceful life, and be a real martial artist = Anderson Silva

I understand he's at the end of his career and is looking for super fights, but I think maybe he should vacate the title. It's kind of unfair to the fighters who are working hard for a title shot.
If he wants to retire as the champ I'm sure he could get fast tracked right to the title shot.
I just don't want to see these fighters screwed out of a chance of being in a title fight and for them getting a chance at a big pay day. Phone Post

He will be there for a reason. Maybe just coincedence that he is filming a movie there but we will see soon enough.

 

It is unlike Anderson, just like GSP, to "call out" anyone. If the UFC puts him in the cage after it will likely be just as awkward as "I am not eeeempressed" was...The UFC probably wants a "call out" though.

GSP probably wont fight until the end of 2013 anyways. He usually fights like once a year. This could give GSP time to gain the weight the right way hah.

GSP has never fought only once per year. Except for his recent injury, he's twice a year at least.

He'll fight again March or April I bet.

It COULD give GSP that chance to put the weight on the 'proper way'... comes back, proves he's still king of WW then goes and packs on the pounds, maybe with a warm up fight against a small MW in the mean time.

Not going to happen, but it would cool.

Wouldnt surprise me to see UFC make Vitor/Bisping for interim belt winner then fight Weidman/Boestch winner. Whoever came out of those 4 would then set up a pretty big fight with Anderson

Snake28 -  Silva deserves a vacation but its a shame we won't ever see him vs Weidman that would be epic and Weidman has all the tools to win. Phone Post

Why he has only had 2 fights a year the past 4 years . With training camps included . He gets plenty of vacation time ! need to fight if he is taking a year off for vacation then they need to put an interim champion or strip him of the belt like they did Mir when he was injured

*sigh*

It pains me but lately Anderson's attitude been really reminiscent of the old Boxing stars. He has the cash and the influence, and basically, can do whatever the hell he wants.

Which includes cherry picking fights and absurdly long layoffs while he gets money elsewhere.

you may have hit the head of the nail with this, and to take it further, this is probably another ploy by Anderson to tell Dana "if you want me to fight, show me the money" Sure he gets paid well, but Anderson Silva Money is not Floyd or Pac money. 

 

All this means is if Dana wants to put on something huge in the middle of the year, Silva gets more $$$$$$$$$

Didn't I tell you guys that this man is another Floyd Mayweather?

THE END OF 2013? 13 MONTHS AWAY? What a con artist.

There is NO EXCUSE that you can make up for his actions. None whatsoever.

Won't fight his No.1 challenger
Wants to fight a WW
Will fight @ 205 but doesn't even fight a top 10 opponent

Some of you are downright STUPID to come off with this vacation bollocks. It;s not like he is fighting 4 times a year or is injured.

Ridiculous behavior.

Just twisting the story. In the unlikely event that GSP wins, he will callout Anderson and everyone will go "oooooh"

Damn. If must be tough to deal with him as a promoter. I mean, Father Time is knocking, AS should fight more, not less!!! I know he can make money elsewhere but as much as if fighting? Highly doubt it.
