Anderson Silva Is 200% Healthy; Still Wants Frank Mir

via www.point-spreads.com

From Fighters Only:

"I don’t know anything at all about any elbow injury," he said, adding with a laugh, "I wonder who hurt me?"

...

"I’m 200 percent healthy and there’s no injury. UFC can set the next fight whenever they want, I’m ready. I’m interested in fighting Frank Mir. He can be the next one," he says.

I'm really getting turned off by Anderson's whole weight class jumping thing.  I wrote a lot about the mess that is the UFC's middleweight division and having a champion who is fighting in every division except the weight class he is champion of is only serving to make things worse.

Frank Mir, meanwhile, continues to keep himself directly in the spotlight now having Anderson Silva, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, and Cheick Kongo all wanting to fight him.  It's amazing how far a little bit of trash talk can take a guy in this sport.
