Anderson Silva talks Shogun, Bones & GSP... except its in Portuguese.

I *really* want to know what's being said. Anybody fancy doing a quick translation?

Ridiculous speculations & comedic quips welcome.

Reporter: So now that Vitor is behind, people want to know who will challenge you next

Who is going to be able to give you a challenge in taking your belt away

You have gone through all your opponents in your weight class, it is hard finding someone now because you have passed through everybody

Anderson: No, there’s still a lot of people in my weight class, there are great athletes in my weight class still, I won’t be able to remember all their names right now but there are still great athletes there

And now I have to wait and see, we’ll continue training, as soon as I landed back here in Brazil I went back to training

Feijão is going to be facing Dan Henderson now, Rogério is going to be facing Tito Ortiz, so we have work to be done

Reporter: Now Dana has mentioned during the Press Conference that GSP would be next, that he’s been wanting to make that fight happen for some time

I want to know what you think of this fight, GSP is a guy who fights at 77kg, he naturally weighs in around 89kg, and you have mentioned that your natural weight is over 100kg

Do you think this fight is more hype than it is competitive in reality? Because a lot of people are saying that it would be a massacre and I personally agree

Anderson: I don’t agree. GSP is a great athlete, very dangerous, and he has his merits as well

He’s dangerous, he’s smart, he knows how to fight, and I think there will be an agreement on the weight issue…

Reporter: but don’t you think this is a physical disadvantage for him? genetically you are very gifted, you are tall and skinny, you can go up in weight or down, and you have a huge reach advantage on him

Anderson: Yeah, but I don’t think that will be much of a factor, I mean, this is what the great Master Hélio Gracie used to say, that BJJ was created for the weak

And GSP is a great athlete and he has all the conditions to go up in weight and to fight at MW

of course I have my advantages, as he has his

And… it’s a fight that people want to see, if it will actually happen we don’t know

Reporter: Would you like for it to happen?

Anderson: It’s a good fight for the fans to see

We only need to agree on the weight so it will be good for him and it will be good for me

It’s a fight that everyone wants to see, for me personally I want to fight the best, and… let’s go

Reporter: Last September you had mentioned that you did not want to go up in weight. Do you still feel this way today?

Anderson: I do, I am MW Champion, and in our team we have Lil’ Nog that fights at LHW, who has a chance of becoming champion

We have Lyoto, we have Feijão

So we stay true to our tradition, of our code of honor, each one stay in their entitled weight class and let’s work together so that the sport grows even more

Reporter: Shogun had an interview a few weeks back in which he said that even though he has trained with you previously he’d have no problems facing you, that he’s a professional

Anderson: Sure, [the fights] are professional

Reporter: would you accept this challenge, you said you wouldn’t go up in weight, but…

How would you see this fight playing out? do you think this fight is a possibility?

Anderson: sure it’s possible. I’m fine in my weight class, I do not plan on leaving my weight class, I plan on retiring in my weight class

Another 10 years fighting in my weight class, hopefully it would be 10 years of victories

It’s difficult, it’s something that is more than likely impossible to fight another 10 years without losing

But we’re going to try. as for the fight I train to fight with the best… there’s no secret

Reporter: now that you touched on the word ‘retirement’, we heard these past few weeks your partnership with [now retired] Ronaldo, I would like for you to talk about that

Anderson: Dude, it’s a great step for the sport…

9ine [Ronaldo's company] is a new born baby that is going to grow and needs all the necessary caution to get stronger and to where we’d like to see it

Reporter: and what exactly is 9ine going to do for the career of Anderson Silva? Is it going to take care of your image, is it going to make deal on fights?

Anderson: 9ine is going to take care of all my business outside of the UFC, my image, sponsors, things like that.

Reporter: Is Corinthians [football club] involved with this somehow? You wore their jersey in the end of the fight

Anderson: That’s a secret,

Reporter: Anderson, UFC 126 was special not just because of your fight, but also because of Jon Jones’ as well that got a lot of attention

Jones will now be challenging Shogun for the LHW belt

Who do you see winning this fight?

Andeson: wow, I’m going to call my psychic, then I’ll let you know

Reporter: You’re not going to risk it?

Anderson: I can’t, it’s going to be a big fight for both of them, they are both great athletes

Jon Jones has a small advantage because he’s very young, and he can risk more

Shogun is the champion, he has experience, and… as a Brazilian I’m going to be rooting for Shogun

But it will be a tough fight for both of them and I think Jon Jones carries a small advantage because of that

Not that I think JJ is the favorite, I think he’ll have a small advantage for being younger and would be able to risk more than Shogun

Reporter: One last question for you is regarding UFC Rio

We will finally have a UFC here in Brazil, what do you think about that and will we have Anderson Silva defending his belt in UFC Rio?

Anderson: I don’t know if I’ll be fighting in UFC Rio, but it’s a unique opportunity and we need to take advantage of this so that we can have other events here

So that we can have another UFC here in the capital, in São Paulo, in Curitiba

We have to work, let’s hope it will be a success

It’s a big step for the sport inside Brazil and…

We’ll need to wait and hope it to be a big success

Reporter: Anderson, we got a lot of questions through twitter

And one of the questions that was mostly asked was a possible match between you and Jon Jones

You mentioned that he’s a young kid that is doing well and is coming with a lot of hype

Anderson: You guys hate me right? Everyone hates me…

Reporter: no easy ones right? Just hard ones.

[B]Anderson: Just broken glass. Beating me is easy, what I want to see is if you’re able to pay my bills

Well… I’m an employee of the UFC, I think that…
Everything is possible. It’s like I said, I do not plan in going up in weight

I’m well in my weight class, I think there’s a reason for everything

Everyone in their places, and JJ is a great athlete, we have a certain level of friendship in there

Of talking, he has told me a few times that he’s my fan, that I inspire him a lot

And I’m not sure if that [fight] would happen, I don’t have this desire

Reporter: he has some strikes that resembles some of yours, he seems to take a few things out of video games such as his elbow strikes…

Anderson: yeah, I think he’s much better than me because he’s younger, he can risk more, if he feels like doing a backflip with a Jackie Chan kick and land on two feet it will be beautiful and it will work, because he’s young

And he can risk it, I had that phase as well

Reporter: Anderson thanks again for coming and congratulations once again on the victory

Now only Captain Nascimento can stop Anderson Silva [movie reference]

Anderson: [sarcastic] “don’t joke around sir, be serious sir, you know we mean business, do you understand me?”

Reporter: Anderson take advantage of this time to leave a message to your fans, that are a lot

Anderson: Everyone out there, please keep on watching and participating and stay tuned to RedeTV and UFC Sem Limites.

regards GSP:

Reporter: Would you like for it to happen?

Anderson: It’s a good fight for the fans to see

Soojooko: lol

And now that he insists hes staying at MW, I want to see lots of criticism and brandishing of words like p*ssy and yellow etc. If hes going to stay at MW he may as well retire. I mean... whats the point, right??

NO!!!!! Hes awesome at MW. GSP is awesome at WW. The status quo never looked so tasty.

Man when he fights at LHW he packs on serious fire power. I can hear the thuds in his punches. I sincerely hope he moves up to LHW for the title and retires as the MW/LHW champ. I really do not think there's anybody who can do that at this point in time other than JBJ with LHW and HW.

Honourable mentions:
BJ already won the WW before and LW.
Jose Aldo can do it at 145 and 155. Probably even 135 as well.
GSP at 170 - 185.

Inb4 people interpret Andersons words as being cocky and arrogant because they don't understand portuguese.

I guess Vitor taking the fight against him wasn't being a professional then?

Anderson talks some garbage at times.
