During the call, Weidman revealed that he won't be happy with UFC 168 unless he finishes Silva, either by knockout or submission.
"Just like any other fight, I want to go in there and get the finish," Weidman said. "I want to go out there and shine and show the world what I can do. [I want to] and prove myself right on what I can do. There's no better person to do that against than Anderson Silva. I went in there last time trying to do and I don't think I'll be happy if I can't finish this fight.
"I still feel like I have everything to lose in this fight. Like I said before, I need to win this fight to solidify me as champion. I want go on and achieve a lot of the other long-term goals I have in this sport. To do that I need to win this next fight."
As for Silva, he focused his discussion more on the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter, which just so happens to take place in his homeland of Brazil.
Silva says he was invited by coach Chael Sonnen by serve as an assistant on the show, but that he declined because he won't be in town during the taping.
"Unfortunately, I won’t be in Brazil so I won’t be able to accept his invitation," Silva said. "But it would be great for the sport because all the athletes in the house will be Brazilian. It would be an honor to be on the show, no matter on which team, to help the sport and the athletes that are going to be there."
Silva fights Weidman in the main event of UFC 168, which goes down Dec. 28 in Las Vegas, Nev.
