Silva vs. Ortiz: What was said?

Anderson Silva: “I was training and the company offered me this fight with Tito. I found it interesting and we will fight.

“I’m really happy with this fight: it has a lot of relevance in sport, in MMA.

“In boxing it’s something completely different, but it’s a new normal, right? This opportunity for legends to compete against each other will be cool. Inside [the ring], everything is possible.

“He doesn’t have a favorite until the end of the fight. I think I will be able to put on a great show and bring joy to everyone.

Tito Ortiz: “I will cut my leg if necessary to gain weight. I will do it.

“It really shows that I’m focused. It shows that Anderson respects my power.

“I’m excited because I respect him as a fighter. But I lost respect for him as a man for not fighting me at 200 pounds.

“I’ve never done 195 pounds in my entire 24-year career,” I’m going to try like hell to do it. I’m going to get there.”
