No excuses.

Andy left no room for andyboys to use a "lack of motivation" excuse:

Training only in his home country of Brazil for the fight, Silva has a renewed vigor. His manager, Ed Soares, isnt sure what in particular lit the fire under the UFCs reigning middleweight champion, but the flame is white hot heading into Saturday nights main event.

Hes very motivated for this fight. I havent seen Anderson this motivated for a fight in a long time, Soares told MMAWeekly Radio. I dont know what it is (that is motivating him for this fight). I just know that for one reason or another hes very focused and motivated for this fight.

He likes training in Brazil. At the end of the day, its his home, and he likes it. He wanted to be near his kids, especially during the holidays. It would have been difficult training in a foreign country, especially without your kids.

Heading into his last fight, Silva was dealing with a sore rib suffered just a week out from his bout against Chael Sonnen. Following the fight, Silva took some much needed time off to recover and now that hes at 100 percent its a whole new ballgame.
