UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva knows that he will be in for a three-round war with Stephan Bonnar at UFC 153: Silva vs. Bonnar. While “The Spider” is the odds-on-favorite, he knows that “The American Psycho” will have several advantages.
“I’ll be heavier, slower and weaker than Bonnar,” said Silva, in a recent interview with Guilherme Cruz of Tatame. “I have to believe I can KO him, but that’s tough.”
Silva is also looking to his future, and a potential date with UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre. As he has done in the past, Silva believes a super-fight with GSP is his next challenge.
“I hope (St-Pierre) is my next fight,” Silva said. “I believe everybody wants to see that fight.”
