UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva replied to Chris Weidman_s show of frustration earlier this week over not getting a shot at the 185lb title.
Silva spoke to via conference call about a number of topics including fighting Stephan Bonnar in Brazil at 205lbs. instead of a fight with Weidman for the strap:
"Everything has it_s time," Silva replied in a conference call with Brazilian media, translated by Guilherme Cruz of Tatame. "He_ll have his opportunity to fight for the belt. Maybe I fight next before he gets the shot, I lose and he fights someone else. We don_t know. I can fight Bonnar, lose and say: ‘you know what, I don_t want it anymore_. Or maybe I win and say ‘I don_t want this anymore_. Or maybe drop to welterweight or move up to heavyweight. Anything can happen. Every UFC fighter will have their chance. You have to work and wait for your opportunity."
