Focused on Chris Weidman, Anderson Silva still wants superfights with GSP and Jon Jones
"I really wanted this fight to happen," Anderson Silva said during a radio interview to "Panico", on Friday, about facing GSP. "Heís a guy that plays by the rules, doesnít take too many risks. That fight may happen, or maybe not. He said he doesnít want it, I donít know. Iíll train and remain focused to fight (Weidman) on Dec. 28."
"Heís like that (Ayrton) Sennaís rival. They used to compete at the same time and one of them was technical and the other played by the rules. (GSP) is the UFCís Alain Prost," Silva added, comparing himself to Brazilian racing driver Senna, who won three Formula One world championships.
After Andersonís loss to Weidman on July 6, UFC president Dana White said the superfights including the Brazilian, GSP and Jones were gone, once that Silva "was the link to both of them."
"I hope it happens," Anderson Silva told Combate.com about the possibility of facing light heavyweight champion Jon Jones in the future. "Thatís the fight everybody is waiting for."
However, Silva knows he canít overlook Weidman.
"I had a nightmare with Weidman, but I donít fear him," Anderson said during the radio interview. "He is determined, but has two arms and two legs just like me. Now Iíll bring Chuck Norris (to my camp). Iíll bring both, Chuck Norris and Steven Seagal."
