The Always humble, reigning middle weight champ Anderson Silva had this to say in regards to a move up in class.
“I’m actually far from cleaning out my division. I feel like there may be guys that are even better than me coming into the UFC. Proof that there’s tough guys in the division is Demian Maia right now… (the fight’s) going to be a big challenge for me. My goal is still to put on as many great fights in the UFC, as many victories as I can throughout the three divisions — middleweight, light heavyweight and possibly heavyweight. Heavyweight is definitely something I have in mind. It’s in my plans … My biggest motivation is to be the champion of the UFC, the biggest event in the world. I feel right at home in the UFC; everyone who makes the UFC circus move makes me feel right at home and very comfortable. I’m very happy with where I’m at. I love being the champion, that it makes me happy and motivates me to get the training and getting back into the Octagon.”
Silva would like to span across three weight classes including Heavyweight, which he is yet to dabble in. An interesting thought to leave you on, if Silva would like to test his hands against a boxer, as he had said in the past, the UFC does now offer Pro Boxer James Toney for him.
