Anderson Silva: Brazil deserves to be respectedPosted on May 28, 2012, 09:29 AM by Anton Gurevich
UFC Middleweight champion Anderson Silva continues his preparations for the "Rematch of the Century" against Chael Sonnen. This time Silva spoke about the demand from Brazilian fans to teach Sonnen a lesson, claiming that he prefers to concentrate on a more realistic goal of just getting getting his hand raised at the end of the fight, which according to "The Spider", is enough to prove Brazil deserves to be respected.
"Everyone I meet asks me to beat the s--t out of this guy. I tell them 'Keep calm, I'll try', because if I say what I want to do, and it doesn't happen - they'll charge me. I'll do my part. I'm dedicating myself, but fight is a fight - anything can happen. In our first fight he was hitting me every round, but in the end he lost. Anything can happen. I'll train to continue the good results we've been having.
For us it's enough to win. Winning is enough to show that Brazil deserves to be respected."
