Arrow A. Silva On Fighting Teammates: That Is Out Of The Question


UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva talks to Tatame.com about speculation that Dana White will look to put together a 205lb clash between champ Lyoto Machida and Silva, both of whom are teamamates:

Tatame: The Dana White is insisting on making the future a fight between you and Lyoto Machida, but you already said that wouldn´t fight ...

Silva: I´ll never fight with Lyoto. This is out of the question. The guy is a brother, would be like to fight with Rodrigo and Rogério. There is no such possibility, nor any money in the world.
theirs a lot of threads and posts about this but now you know silvas opinion..... discuss

Its dissapointing that we may never see him face off against Machida, but at the same time I respect his solidarity greatly, gonna be quite the headache for Dana and Joe Silva though...

it's a shame we won't see this fight, but on the other hand, you must respect his decision.
hi's right about this in a way. and nobody can force him to do something against his own will.
remember. when this guys are in that cage, they transform in a realy strange way. you see them walking on the streets and you say they're normal people, but once they ebter the cage they transform. sometimes, some of the fighters are fighting with such rage and hate, you realy get scared. it's okay if your oppoenent is't someone you care about. but to do that kind of thing to a good friend. it's dangerous and strange.
i would love to see this fight, but knowing silva's opinion, i don't think it wuold be a good fight if it were to happen.
unless dana manages to create some hate between these guys.
dana can be realy diabolichal.

Im gonna say the same thing here as i did in another thread about silva and machida. This fight has the potential to be exciting but a very high probability of having 2 counter strikers trying to do nothing but counter strike making this super fight super boring. the only thing to come of it would be to see who is actually better. im not too interested though.

Miesha Tate - Urijah Faber - Dustin Poirier - Frankie Edgar - Diaz Bro's - Claudia Gadelha - Demian Maia - Jessica Eye

Doesn't Anderson often state that he is the best?
Anyone know how long they've been friends vs how long Anderson and Wandy were? I believe Anderson would now fight Wandy...

Anyway, if egos are at stake (and I'm sure they are) how long will Anderson last hearing that he is good but not as good as Machida? Does anyone know if Machida is as vigilant stating that he won't fight Anderson?
