Anderson 'Spider' Silva says he didn't know about the media event.
The UFC middleweight champion addressed the situation with Brazilian media outlet Veja, stating that he did not know about the scheduled appointments until he was on his way to the airport.
“I’ve never missed any commitment to the UFC. I would never have made the trip to Brazil if I knew I had to be in Los Angeles,” said Silva. “Everyone knows that I always block my media schedule to devote myself to training, since that’s my main priority. I’m an athlete, and my focus will always be to train and be prepared for the challenges.” via:Sherdog
