We know Anderson Silva still believes he beat Michael Bisping, and despite going 0-4-1 in his last 5, we also know that he beat Nick Diaz, he knocked out Michael Bisping in a dubious situation with a U.K. athletic commission, and then he fought Daniel Cormier, a guy who beats up heavyweights, on 48 hours notice. In his mind, he's 2-2 in his last 4 with the Cormier fight not even counting. It's all good. He enjoys his job.
In this UFC 208 post-workout scrum, Anderson goes on to say that he's going to prove how much passion and energy he has for the sport still. Even at 41-years-old, Anderson is still smiling, and still having a good time.
But what's next? What happens after 208?
Anderson isn't really into the idea of calling out Bisping again, even though he has on social media. He knows it's his teammate, Jacare's, time. Additionally, Anderson seems genuinely happy to be without the constant attention that a title belt brings.
"I lost a lot of time with my family. Now I just focus on the fight then I'm back home with my family."
Who can blame him? He was the champion for so many years, he has the right to dictate how much promotional time he spends out on the road. Props to Anderson. Now let's see him work up a sweat!
