Anderson Silva is 'very, very excited' for Chris Weidman fight

Anderson Silva discusses his excitement to fight Chris Weidman in Vegas on July 6.

Anderson Silva's fight with Stephan Bonnar didn't exactly stir much interest from fans who saw the obvious advantages the pound-for-pound great had in the bout. But, his upcoming fight with Chris Weidman is as legitimate a challenge as there is left in the middleweight division, especially considering Weidman's strengths are in the areas where one can conceivably "get to" Silva.

Tracy Lee released a video catching up with the UFC legend who talked about his motivation level heading into the bout (Transcribed by MMA Mania):

"I will be fighting Chris Weidman on July 6 at UFC in Vegas. I'm very, very excited for my next fight. Thank you UFC, thank you Dana. I'm very, very excited for my next fight. I never really stopped my training because I like to train, I like my life and I like to fight. I'm very, very happy to stay here in my school, the Muay Thai College to start my training for my coach, for my friends and my students, I'm very, very happy! See you in July!"
