Anderson Silva says if he doesn’t fight Yoel Romero for the interim middleweight title, he’s done

Anderson Silva is very frustrated with the UFC for a number of reasons, states that if he doesn’t fight Yoel Romero for the interim UFC middleweight title, he’s done.

Last week, Al Iaquinta continued to lay out his frustrations with the UFC. This week, Anderson Silva can be added to that list.

While appearing on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani, Silva made it known, if he doesn’t fight Yoel Romero for the interim UFC middleweight title next, he will leave the sport behind.

Silva is still seeking an opponent for his scheduled bout at UFC 212 with Kelvin Gastelum. Gastelum was pulled from the bout after being flagged by USADA for a potential anti-doping violation. “The Spider” has his eyes on an interim title fight with Romero, as his frustrations continue with the negotiations.

“I’m very frustrated, everything is happening about my fight in Brazil,” Silva said on The MMA Hour. “I don’t know, the guys don’t talk to me. Fights will come, fights no come and now nothing is happening. The guys give me the options for fight for my people, my country, for my fans.  I say ‘O.K.. I’ll go fight Yoel Romero’, because I know and respect Yoel Romero, I know him, he’s a great fighter, he’s number one in the ranks.

“One thing, why Yoel Romero come to Brazil to fight me for nothing? Yoel Romero say, I’ll go to Brazil to fight for interim belt. The same, I talk to my management, with my opinions about this fight. A lot of promises for me, for a long time and nothing happen.”

That was not the only thing of note Silva seemed frustrated with. Silva also noted upon speaking with Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta before signing his new contract with the UFC, that if Georges St-Pierre were to return to the organization, the super fight that fans have been hoping for years, would come to fruition. With St-Pierre slated to fight champion Michael Bisping sometime in 2017, Silva is tired of broken promises from the UFC.

“When I signed my last contract, Dana White and Lorenzo, say when Georges St-Pierre comes back, you’ll fight him in super fight,” Silva said.  “I don’t know what happened, Georges St-Pierre comes back and fights for the belt? This is terrible, this makes no sense.”

Romero did call into the show while Silva was on, but as of right now, no fight has been made as of yet for one of the greatest of all-time in Rio at UFC 212.
