Anderson Silva’s Camp Mocks Middleweight Contenders

[singlepic id=1245 w=320 h=240 float=left]In an interview with Tatame.com, Anderson Silva’s manager, Jorge Guimaraes, said that every possible UFC middleweight that’s contending for a title shot is a “big joke”.

According to the article, Silva’s camp has said that Chris Weidman, Tim Boetsch and Alan Belcher aren’t even close to being on the same level as the UFC Middleweight Champ.  Guimaraes believes that the only fight that makes sense for Silva to take right now, is a superfight against UFC Welterweight Champion, Georges St. Pierre.  Of course, that fight won’t be happening anytime soon as GSP is eyeing a return in November to unify the welterweight belts against UFC Interim Welterweight Champion, Carlos Condit.

“No opponent makes sense for Anderson at this moment. Unless we do a catchweight against Georges St. Pierre,” Guimaraes said. “They didn’t offer the fight, but he’s the only one that could do a super fight. Anderson has the biggest paycheck in the UFC, and you can’t promote an event with these amateur kids that are coming up now”.
