Anderson Silva recently sat down with Karyn Bryant for FUEL TV, who asked him how he feels when he sees the iconic image of his win over Vitor Belfort.

"I don't like to fight Braziiian guys because it is different for me. I fought with Vitor, but I didn't like it, because I trained with Vitor for a long time.

"One day vitor said 'I am going to fight UFC, I am fighting 185.'

The guys said "What???'"


So what do you think UG? The desire to avoid fighting teammates if at all possible is near universal. Is not wanting to fight a countryman, taking it too far or can Anderson Silva feel whatever he damn wants? How would you feel about an American fighter saying he would rather not fight fellow Americans?

The only thing I don't get is how Anderson gets pissed if someone wants to fight at 185 when they've trained together. So anyone he has ever trained with he expects them to never try and go for a MW belt, even if that's their natural weight class? Shogun, machida, Vitor. All these guys are 185ers. Love u Andy but that's just not reasonable. Phone Post 3.0

Basically he's saying he PREFERs not to fight his own countrymen, not that he WON'T. I can certainly understand this. Given the choice why would you fight your own kind?

I would wanna face my friends out of respect for them. To see where I match up.

If I was Anderson Silva and my friends were some of the best fighters in the world, id be happy as hell to wanna try to fight each one of them.
Friendly competition can still exist. Phone Post 3.0

Actually... no. What do those 2 fighters REALLY have in common? BJJ experts who would just spam takedowns against Andy which forced those fights to be the way they were.

A lot of truth to this but you have to admit, it will be interesting no matter how many times he treat Forrest and Bonnar like step childs.

I do but my point is that even tho Anderson often complains about things you or me may not think are very important, when it come down to it and he's in the cage he does get past it, and brings it. Which is why I referred to the picture. Phone Post 3.0

To be honest I think it is just Anderson, Shogun and Wand were as close as brothers at one point. Wand cried tears of joy when Shogun won the Grand Prix in '05. Plus Shogun's next fight is against a Brazilian. ;-) Phone Post 3.0
