It may be time to change my bet…
Former long running champion Anderson Silva (likely) jokingly tells the media recently that he is not only bringing in his celeb sensei Steven Seagal (who wasn’t in his last camp) for the rematch against Chris Weidman, but he will also bring in the great Chuck Norris.
“I’ll train and remain focused to fight [Weidman] on Dec. 28…. But, I hope [a "super" fight against Jon Jones eventually happens. That’s the fight everybody is waiting for.... I had a nightmare with Weidman, but I don’t fear him. He is determined, but has two arms and two legs just like me. Now I’ll bring Chuck Norris [to my camp]. I’ll bring both, Chuck Norris and Steven Seagal.”
As you probably noticed, we also learn that Silva is still very interested in fighting light heavyweight champ Jon Jones. First we will need to see “The Spider” redeem himself against “All American” Chris Weidman at UFC 168 on Dec. 28. By the way, if you’re foolish enough to not be aware of Chuck Norris, here’s an example of “The Real Most Interesting Man.” — “When Alexander Bell invented the telephone he had 3 missed calls from Chuck Norris.” Had to sneak that in ;).
