Chris Weidman is also going around saying Anderson is scared of him and is ducking him. (Sounds to me like he is taking a page out of Chaels book.) Chris Weidmans word that Anderson is refusing to fight him is as credible as anything Chael has said regarding Anderson.

Chris Weidman probably told Dana White that he wants Anderson next and Dana White told him that Anderson wants to wait until 2013 to get back in there. Il take Danas word on this rather then the guy claiming Anderson is scared when anything Anderson has done proves otherwise. And him taking a break is much different then turning down a fight and wanting a different opponent.

As ED Soares himself said. The Weidman fight isnt interesting but Anderson has never turned down to fight anyone and if that is what Dana wants him to do then thats what he will do.

And TBH

If i was Anderson and i was offered GSP or Weidman. I would ofcourse pick GSP. That isnt the same as refusing to fight Weidman. Thats just being smart and chosing the super fight everyone wants to see while being closer to the end of your career.

Picked a quote that's reflective on this entire debacle. I think it'll be my last regarding UFC 151 as I've written two separate articles and submitted it to 50 media outlets. That character who's sitting on the false throne isn't worth my attention any more. It's up to them if they want to publish it or not.

Part I - Why ____ (you know who) is bad for business...

Part II - PR Quagmire - You guys have already seen this on one of the other threads.

Marcus Aurelius: You have proven your valor once again, Maximus. Let us hope for the last time.
Maximus: There is no one left to fight, sire.
Marcus Aurelius: There is always someone left to fight. How can I reward Rome's greatest general?
Maximus: Let me go home.
Marcus Aurelius: Ah, home.

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

When you fight for yourself...you fight for no one. No one will watch you. No one will care until that day comes; one month, one year, 10 years. When it does come you will be long forgotten while others' who died before you are etched in granite stones til the ends of time.

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

More on Anderson Silva's thoughts on UFC 151...

"- You have an entire preparation to fight against specific an athlete. When it changes, changes a bit. I thought he could have fought with Chael, but it's an option he has too. He prepared to fight with Dan Henderson. The whole team thought it was best not to fight - explained.

- When I heard the news, I called Dana and said I would fight against some LHW who was not training as well. Besides the big fight, there are many other fighters who depend on it. I'm worried about that because I have lived this situation in smaller events."

Any translators here...
