In an interview with MMA Junkie, Anderson Silva said that he’s hoping to get another title shot if he can defeat Israel Adesanya at UFC 234 in February. Here are highlights:

On getting a title shot: “I believe in a perfect world, of course, Anderson Silva fights for the belt and takes the belt, then drop the mic. But I need to focus on this fight first. That’s the second step. Let’s go see, because the future is very short.”

On his fight with Adesanya: “I believe this is the great fight, this is an amazing fight. This fight is going to change everything in this game.”

On Georges St-Pierre: “I believe Georges St-Pierre does not take the real challenge. He just tries to do something easy for yourself, but this is Georges St-Pierre. He’s so smart. That’s the game, that’s the business. He’s a business man. For me, I prefer to take real challenge. Don’t put nothing in the mind of my fans, (saying) ‘maybe yes, maybe not.’ That’s why I accepted the fight with (Daniel) Cormier in two days (at UFC 200). That’s the difference … it’s not about fighters – it’s about martial arts. I like challenge and I try to do my best every time.”
