Quoteworthy:

“First thing, he (Belfort) was never my friend. Second, a fight is fight. I’m here to fight and whoever is better prepared will win and one of us will lose. I’d be upset if I had to face Rodrigo, Rogerio, Feijao, Lyoto or even Wanderlei or Shogun, but Vitor? He’s just another opponent like everyone else."

Taken from an article that wasn’t published due to the cancellation of their UFC 112 fight in Abu Dhabi, Anderson Silva reveals that he and Victor Belfort  were never "friends" despite training together at Team Black House. Things became tense after the UFC put them face-to-face back in January to promote the April 10 event but now with "The Phenom" on the shelf due to injury they won't have an opportunity to settle their differences inside the Octagon ... yet.
