Wanderlei Silva recently spoke with MMAjunkie about his fight with Rich Franklin this weekend, Vitor Belfort and more. Check out the highlights:
On fighting Belfort: "He can run, but he can't hide. Sooner or later, we're going to fight."
On whether he believes Belfort's injury was legit: "You need to ask him. I looked in the news, and he started training right now. He recovered so fast, didn't he? I don't know."
On Franklin: "He's a good fighter. He's a big name. He was the last UFC middleweight champion before Anderson Silva. This is a great fight for me, and we're going to give a great fight for the fans. I changed my mindset for the next opponent. I have a big test with him, and I hope he planned very well."
On his physical state: "I feel great. I'm healthy, and I have no injuries. My mind is good. The age is just a number."
