One of UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva’s managers, Jorge Guimaraes spoke to tatame.com recently and was asked about Chris Weidman, Tim Boetsch and Alan Belcher’s challenges to take on Silva next for the belt.
“That’s a big joke. Everybody saw that it worked for Chael, and he got really famous with that, and now everybody wants to be on the spotlight. No opponent makes sense for Anderson at this moment. Unless we do a catchweight against Georges St. Pierre.
They didn’t offer the fight, but he’s the only one that could do a super fight. Anderson has the biggest paycheck in the UFC, and you can’t promote an event with these amateur kids that are coming up now.”
