Anderson Silva wants Rockhold

Quote:
With the knock out loss to Vitor Belfort , Michael Bisping lost the chance to face Anderson Silva and hence embolou the middleweight category (up to 84kg) UFC. Now, they appear as leading candidates are the very Belfort, Chris Weidman , Luke Rockhold and Rashad Evans , who is heavyweight (up to 93kg), but has said he would come down in weight if it were to face the Spider. The business owner's belt, Jorge "Joinha" Guimarães, reviewed the names and showed preference for Rockhold, Strikeforce middleweight champion and you just move to the UFC from other athletes extinct event:
- All of these are accredited, but we'd like a fight against Luke Rockhold is, what is the current Strikeforce champion. He is accredited to fight Anderson. It would be champion against champion. It's a good fight to promote - told SPORTV.COM .

Agent Anderson wants to fight against Luke Rockhold: 'Good to promote'
Jorge Guimarães, however, also says that the team still Spider
is waiting for St-Pierre, and does not rule out Vitor Belfort and Rashad Evans

Joinha, on the other hand, said he is still waiting for the superfight against Georges St-Pierre , the welterweight champion (77kg). He revealed that the Canadian, showing that there had been very excited about the possibility, is much more receptive now:

We're hoping GSP, already outlined in the internal will to fight Anderson. He has a tough fight against Nick Diaz (UFC 158 on March 16), but I think that wins. Depending on his performance ... We will wait without any hurry.

About Vitor Belfort, who was defeated by Anderson in February 2011, was the businessman who was more receptive to the possibility. Rather, he saw no sense in this rematch:

Vitor certainly is an excellent fighter and is certainly in the "mix". It is a strong candidate for the contest, was very strong in this fight (against Bisping). I think he enjoyed the performance he had against Jon Jones and wanting another chance against the U.S., but is a very strong candidate. Anderson's victory was blunt about it. It is a little difficult, but certainly he is proving that is in excellent shape and very strong.

Rashad Evans is also well seen by an opponent Joinha. The heavyweight U.S. has committed against Rogerio Nogueira at UFC 156 on Feb. 2:

Of course, no doubt. Rashad is a great name, it's a fight that makes sense. We do not rule Rashad - concluded the agent.

Rashad is a HW eh? Lol

I think Rockhold would make sense since he was the SF ME champ. Belfort looked outstanding and beat a top contender but he already had a title shot at MW and LHW

When your boy comes back. He will have been on the shelf for over a year. The only good thing that will come of that is people might forget how fat and sloppy Mark Munoz looked in his last fight by then.

Weidman is hurt.

Rockhold makes sense, he is the SF champ.

Why not do Vitor vs. Weidman in the summer? True #1 contenders fight.

Yep. Munoz was fat, Maia was sick, Weidman can't sell PPV's, no one knows who he is, we've been through this a million times.

Anderson will have Rockhold out in about four minutes.

I would rather see Anderson fight Jacare. I know it's not going to happen since he lost the decision to Rockhold, IMO he didn't, but I would be more interested in that fight.
