WEC middleweight champion Paulo Filho and friend Anderson Silva have a plan to conquer the UFC middleweight division with out ever fighting each other, according to a recent interview with Tatame. The two Brazilian fighters have been adamant about never facing each other in the cage.
“I think Anderson is doing the right thing. He always praises me, wants the best for me, and said we wouldnâ€™t fight me, heâ€™s the best, and I donâ€™t wanna fight him too. I think heâ€™ll go up (to light-heavyweight) and until then Iâ€™ll go there and when I get closer to the title, heâ€™d be already retired. He already done a lot for the sport, and we they have a lot of great athletes there and I canâ€™t let this opportunity go away, itâ€™ll be a better motivation, show the PaulÃ£o from the Pride GP. The problem in this depression moment was motivation, it was a very complicated moment, but now things are better and I can show my best game.”
Liddell is a slow fighter. He moves well, but heâ€™s slow, and I believe Anderson will dance in front of him, connect some punchesâ€¦ Anderson would win that for sure.
