Anderson says that talk in the past about him fighting at heavyweight have been exaggerated 

“Every fighter wants to be challenged. But its something that has to be considered carefully with my doctor and my conditioning coaches and my trainers because it’s a different weight altogether. Even though I train with Big Nog, who is heavy, with Rafael Feijao, with people who are heavier than me - its one thing to train with heavyweights, its another thing to fight them, So it would be pretentious of me saying I want to fight a heavyweight or something, lets let it happen naturally. Things have been the way they are since the beginning of my career so why change it now?”

Anderson then spoke about how he is not invincible like everyone had once thought.

"People who watched the fight with Sonnen had the opportunity to see that I'm a regular guy, I bleed, I’m not unbeatable. Anderson Silva is a regular guy like any other, he makes mistakes. Every day that goes by, I try to improve myself and search for something that may be impossible - perfection… [The issue of] ‘best in the world’ is complicated, I don’t even think it exists.”
