Anderson Silva has said before he intends to fight four times in 2016. So far, it looks like he intends to actually do it. During a interview with ESPN in London, Silva replied he would rather fight at UFC 198, in his hometown of Curitiba, when asked if he would like to fight at UFC 200.

"I would rather fight in Brazil, in Curitiba. I hope I can fight in Brazil. If everything goes my way and it will. If everyone thinks I should fight in Brazil, I will. Let's see how this Bisping fight plays out and then we move on to the next stage."

Lol, he wants to fight in Brazil where the judges will be biased towards him instead of his opponent.

Can't blame him after that shit show in the UK.

He's asking for a rematch with Bisping and I don't think Bisping will be ready (or willing) to go by May 14.

Only top 10 MW's that are available for that date would be Mousasi or Kennedy....and just outside the top 10 is Brunson and Hall but I could see those two fighting each other.

Might as well save Anderson for 200 but I can understand him wanting to fight in Curitiba since he lived there for awhile (if I'm not mistaken). I'd want to fight there too if I was him.
