UFC News: Mayweather Talks Beef With Anderson Silva, Main Event Changed, Former Contender Cut

- Floyd Mayweather was recently interviewed by DJ Sway Calloway and was asked about Anderson Silva. The two have traded verbal jabs in the past, with Silva recently stating that he didn't respect the boxing superstar.

"I pray for him, he's OK," said Mayweather. "I don't have nothing negative to say about that guy Anderson Silva. You know, I've seen some highlights on him. I don't know him personally, but I've seen highlights of him fight. Hopefully he can bounce back, I heard he just took an 'L,' so hopefully he can bounce back from that loss... I don't got nothing bad to say about anybody."

You can watch the interview above. The comments about Silva come at the 19:30 mark.

- ESPN reports that Michael Bisping suffered an eye injury and has been forced to withdraw from his main event fight with Mark Munoz at UFC Fight Night 30 on October 26 in Manchester, England. Lyoto Machida, who was previously scheduled to face Tim Kennedy in November, will make his middleweight debut and replace Bisping. The UFC has not yet named a replacement opponent for Kennedy.
