Silva: It is Difficult to Stay a Champ
“It's every athlete's dream to become a champion. However, in this sport, it's very difficult.” ---Anderson Silva
For UFC middleweight champion, Anderson Silva, getting the belt is as challenging as staying on top of the division. He is UFC’s longest reigning champion, after snatching the middleweight title from Rich Franklin last October 2006. Anderson Silva has been unstoppable in his succeeding fights, until Chael Sonnen became his contender. The outspoken contender was able to dominate him in four rounds, before tapping out from a triangle choke in the last frame.
“After the Chael fight, people think I’m human again and that anything can happen. I could be knocked out, I could be submitted.”
However, Anderson Silva will continue to defend his title against anyone who wants to challenge him. He will take on Vitor Belfort on UFC 126 that is set to take action on February 5, at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.View Article Source »
