Anderson Silva giving up on super-fight; writes off Bisping

Quote:
"[Silva's] manager doesn't think the GSP super fight will happen right now, but they'd love for it to happen at some point. I brought up the possibility of fighting Michael Bisping if he wins against Vitor Belfort. And Jorge told me they'd love that fight, but he said he didn't think Bisping has a good shot against Vitor Belfort. So they think Anderson will be back fighting in the summertime, but they're not sure who he will fight then."

I took some liberties with the title, I admit. As per usual, this is Silva's management speaking. At this point, I actually wouldn't mind seeing Bisping fight Silva. I'd give him virtually no chance, but at least it would be something new and fresh. That said, I honestly don't see Mike getting passed Belfort.

They'll need to figure something out. Silva needs to defend his belt, but in order for that to happen, there has to be a challenger. I'd be open to Belfort/Silva II, especially following Vitor's performance against Jones (aka, the best to date).
