“First thing, he (Belfort) was never my friend. Second, a fight is fight. I’m here to fight and whoever is better prepared will win and one of us will lose. I’d be upset if I had to face Rodrigo, Rogerio, Feijao, Lyoto or even Wanderlei or Shogun, but Vitor? He’s just another opponent like everyone else."

Taken from an article that wasn’t published due to the cancellation of their UFC 112 fight in Abu Dhabi, Anderson Silva reveals that he and Victor Belfort were never "friends" despite training together at Team Black House.

So what exactly is the complete list of fighters Silva will not face. Because I for one am a bit annoyed by this as I would like to see some of those fights.

did i miss something? what makes you think he's pissed off?
it just sounds like he's saying that Vitor isn't one of the fighters he's tight with even though they have trained together.

aside from all that....i can't help but hope Vitor takes this if and when they do fight. I'll be picking Vitor because i love watching him fight but I'm not sure if he has what it takes to beat Anderson. Either way ...should be very entertaining. Anderson is a freakin mazing.

Ever since I saw Vitor beat up on Tank Abbott way back he's been one of my favourite fighters, I reallllly hope he beats Silva when they fight and I think of anyone Vitor could do it, let's hope it happens.

Vitor Belfort: Anderson Silva seemed 'upset or nervous' at UFC 112 pre-fight face off

oh, yeah i saw that. i thought you were pulling something out of this article (Anderson Silva: 'Vitor Belfort was never my friend' ) specifically that made it sound like Silva was pissed.
