Considered one of the greatest fighters of all time, former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva is preparing for a rematch with current champion Chris Weidman, the man who took the belt he held for years.

Leading up to the fight, Silva met with MMAWeekly.com and other media outlets in Los Angeles to discuss what he felt went wrong in their first fight and how he has prepared for the rematch.

Silva also weighed in on who feels is the best fighter in the UFC right now, and Silva’s son gave his prediction for how his father’s fight will go on December 28.
