UFC Quick Quote: Anderson Silva's manager confirms pending Belfort fight

Silva-belfort_medium

“It’s a tough fight, Vitor is a dangerous guy, but Anderson is a tough guy, (Vitor) is gonna fight the best pound for pound fighter in the world.”

-- UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva’s manager, Jorge Guimaraes, talks to Tatame.com about the looming 2010 match up between the "Spider" and "Phenom." Silva is currently on the shelf until his elbow fully recovers from recent surgery to remove bone fragments. He was originally expected to face Belfort at UFC 108; however, that date was canceled after the champ failed to regain full range of motion in time to prepare for the Jan. 2 card. When will he return? UFC 109 on Feb. 6 might also be too soon. Only time will tell, but Belfort seems willing to wait ... for now. Check out the video interview with Guimaraes after the jump.
