Sounds scared. Saying Silva has no weaknesses, that he'd like a few more fights first, and that Nate deserves it more than him.

Sounds more humble than scared to me but you could be right.

Someone mentioned Hendo deserving the shot more then nate, how the hell do you justify that? Nate has won three straight at middleweight, Dan won two fights at middleweight and one at lightheavyweight in his last three. Nate's recent record is more relovent in this division. Personally, id much rather see Belfort/Silva then Hendo or nate vs Silva, we have already seen those fights, they will end the same way. Nate is still nowhere near being on Silva's level as a striker, Dan still only has one punch and he is getting old.

I would honestly like to see Hendo fight Silva again. I believe he actually has a shot at beating him if his contract goes through and Silva's manager will take the fight.

I have a real hard time believing he would be scared....I mean he signed with the UFC and had plans to fight at MW so I'm pretty sure he knows where that road leads. Sounds to me almost as silly as his lack of 'mental toughness' a lot of people threw around before his fight with Rich.

Perhaps. Or he could just genuinely believe that one win doesn't merit him a title shot, and that there are those in the UFC who may, at this time, be more deserving. There's something to be said about proving your worth before tossing your name into the championship running. I see a humble and patient man more than I see a 'scared' man.

Great logic there... Wandy beat the sh#t out of rampage in pride a few years ago and how did their fight in the UFC go again? Oh yeah Rampage Knocked him out hard. Matbe i'm bias but your comment makes no sense.

On topic though - great clip such a humble dude, to say he's scared seems a bit silly the guys been around since the days with no weight classes and practically no rules he is the definition of a warrior i don't think he's scared just being honest - Silva doesn't have any obvious weaknesses.
