Anderson Silva Concerned With Stephan Bonnar, Looking Towards GSP Fight

UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva has an agenda planned out for himself.

First, Silva will move up to light heavyweight and face Stephan Bonnar at UFC 153. By doing so, Silva will have placed himself in the good graces of the UFC by stepping in to fill the vacant main event.

Second, “The Spider” has Georges St-Pierre locked into his web of madness. The super-fight between the two UFC champions has been talked about for years, but it appears that Silva is 100-percent focused on making it happen.

“I’ll be heavier, slower and weaker than Bonnar,” said Silva, during a recent interview with Tatame.com on the upcoming fight. “I have to believe I can KO him, but that’s tough.”

When asked about St-Pierre, Silva said, “I hope (he) is my next fight. I believe everybody wants to see that fight.”
