Ron Kruck of HDNet catches up with UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson “The Spider” Silva during the grand opening of the Black House gym in San Diego, California.  Silva discusses the facility, as well as the various teams who come together as one big “family.”  Silva says he is happy with his win over Vitor Belfort, but says he is focused only on preparing for the future.  He also talks about the potential “superfight” with Georges St. Pierre, who he considers one of the best fighters in the world.

This past February Silva extended his UFC record for most consecutive title defenses to eight by knocking out  Belfort in the opening round of their UFC 126 match-up.  Who the consensus pound for pound king will face next is unclear, however should St. Pierre emerge victorious from his April 30th bout with Jake Shields, UFC President Dana White has stated that a “superfight” between the champs would be the likely scenario.
