Rumoured to face Anderson Silva in a superfight in recent years, canadenseGeorges St-Pierre-heavyweight champion of the UFC welterweight, said in several recent interviews that he believes that the Brazilian will be defeated by American Chris Weidman, his training partner, and will lose the belt of middleweights in the UFC 162, next July 6 in Las Vegas. The fighter Paulo, however, shrugged for predicting GSP and wryly replied on Tuesday in a conference call with the international press.
- Imagine if I listened to all that talk about me, huh. Each does and says what he thinks best. He had his chance to rule to fight me, but he did not. It's better than talking parrot turtle without leg - Spider shot.
St-Pierre, however, was not the only one who believed in declaring victory Weidman on July 6, and the chairman of the event, Dana White, even recently stated that all wrestlers who asked about the fight said the U.S. would win . Anderson descreditou the head by stating that it was a lie that he had called asking for a superfight against Jon Jones or GSP after UFC 159 ("Nor have his phone number," he said). As for those who think Weidman will be the biggest challenge of his career, Spider recalled his long career to say that nothing happens in the Octagon will surprise lo.saiba more.
- Every new struggle is a new challenge. Now is agurdar, wait for July 6. Who is best prepared will win. I fight since he was eight years old, does not have much new to me there. Nothing he does will surprerender me. Victory and defeat go hand in hand. The experience that I already have makes me not worry about what my opponent will do. My concern is to be better than I am not better than Chris Weidman will be - said Anderson.
