After Maia and Leites I too have seen enough of Silva fighting BJJ World champions

this is to funny! So Anderson gets to hand pick who he fights now? He wont fight all his friends in the top 5 of the MW division? Of course! Hahaa! I hope Chris finishes him again. Then maybe we can see the top contendes compete.

Just because Anderson says he's uninterested in those fights doesn't mean that he'll turn them down if the UFC tells him that that's what they want him to do next. He's scheduled to fight Weidman right now, so he's not handpicking anything right now. He's just speaking his mind. He's not acting like Belfort, whose just blatantly avoiding a bunch of fights.

I'd like to see him fight Jacare, but I have no interest in seeing him fight Belfort again.

Edit: I didn't even realize Jacare and Anderson train together. I don't blame him for not wanting that fight.

He's already beaten Belfort and he and "Jacare" are training partners, so I see where he's coming from.

There aren't many champions where are willing to fight teammates. This isn't anything new.

well i can understand him not wanting to fight a team mate. i know i wouldn't want to fight a training partner of mine. but i thnk its kind of jacked up he's saying he doesn't want to fight Victor. Yea there friends but that didnt stop him the frist fight. and i think belfort deserve another shot. Who else is in line after Anderson fights weidman?

You're forgetting a huge piece of the puzzle...

What happens if Weidman wins again?

That would defeat the purpose in Anderson having a rematch with Belfort (unless of course Belfort loses to Hendo). With that said, if Anderson beats Weidman and they don't schedule another immediate rematch, Anderson isn't going to turn down a fight against TRT-Rex if that's what the UFC wants.
