UFC Quick Quote: Anderson Silva would retire before fighting Lyoto Machida

Eric Bolte-US PRESSWIRE

Respect the bro code!

"I've already said it and I'll say it again, Lyoto and myself, we are brothers, Lyoto and myself. ‘Jacare' and myself, we are friends, camp friends. We have a code of honor amongst ourselves, which is we don't fight against ourselves regardless of wins or losses, or money, fame or not. I would give up fighting if necessary if I had to fight against Lyoto."

Anderson Silva vs. Lyoto Machida? Sorry Dana, not gonna happen. True, both men have been known to bounce back-and-forth between middleweight and light heavyweight, but these two former champions go together like peanut butter and jelly. Heck, they even joined forces to help a disgruntled teenager get revenge on the mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter who murdered his parents (true story). That's why "The Spider," who tries to get his title back against Chris Weidman at UFC 168 later this year, told the media he would never breathe fire against "The Dragon," who has some work to do against Mark Munoz at UFC Fight Night 30 across the pond. I guess Silva is "getting soft" in his old age.
