Silva tearfully when asked about the Weidman fight fixing.
Anderson Silva: I'm Brazilian, and people respect my story outside of our country - Japan, England, USA, and we very respected. We do our job very well. On the side of fixing the fight, and me selling it, I'm a little annoyed because when I enter the Octagon, I represent my country and I represent all the Brazilians here and outside who cheer me. It got me very upset, people thinking I sold the fight. i always said it's a Brazilian belt, if it's with me or another Brazilian, I always said I don't want to fight with another Brazilian. If another Brazilian won, i would cheer them on. i wanted the belt to stay here. I'm not a politician, I'm an athlete and I represent my country and I'll never fail them. Never.
