Anderson Silva Eyes Six More Years Of Fighting Before Retirement | UFC NEWS


“I guess you can see more like six years of fighting. I love what I do. The team that works with me does a fantastic job. I’ve never had a serious injury that took myself away from competition. So I think I have this a little while longer.”

In an interview with Brazilian newspaper, estadao.com.br, UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva lets the public know that retirement isn’t coming anytime soon.

While he is currently the most dominant UFC fighter in history, will the pound-for-pound elite be able to keep his reign going for another six straight years?

    I love Anderson as a fighter and as a person but I’d hate to see him fight for another six years? What is there left to do? He has all the UFC records he could possibly set and I’m sure he has a sh*t loads of money. I’d love to see him have one super fight with GSP or Jones and retire whilst on top. Also I think the MW divison needs to move on if Anderson fights for another 6 years in the UFC he wouldn’t be defending his title more then once a year (Some years he may defend it twice) which is not good enough as a champion.

  2. H-Bomb Baby says:

    I do truly enjoy watching Anderson fight. But to say that he will be on top for another 6 years straight? That is a huge goal to fulfil! He is an amazing fighter, and I think he is the pound for pound best on the planet. Is already 37 years old, and not everyone can be Randy Couture! I wish him the best in his career, and I will ALWAYS be rooting for him to win! WAR SPIDER!!”

  3. punchkick says:

    he has nothing more to prove. 1 fight per year?

  4. scotty says:

    Was this said in a recent interview or was the from an interview like 2 years ago? Because I remember a couple years ago this exact statement was said by Anderson when asked if he was going to retire after he fought Sonnen (first fight).. Because there was rumors he was going to retire after the Sonnen fought because of his age but then laughed and said he could fight another 6 years.. But anyway back on subject if you are healthy and you aren’t losing a step why not keep doing something you love? Only time he actually ever looked bad was the Sonnen first fight but then proved what he is really capable of doing in the 2nd.. But I honestly feel he might walk away if he gets a superfight..

  5. MMA says:

    he eyes 6 more years of fighting, so anderson has 6 fights left in him

  9. lezzerw says:

    Six more years of fighting for Silva will be very entertaining. Probably a smarter idea than coaching, especially after his boys came to HI this weekend and went 0 – 3 ;)

  10. Alan Peart says:

    I love watching Anderson find different ways of making the best fighters in the world look like idiots. He can fight as long as he wants to as far as I’m concerned.

  11. Dwayne White says:

    ok seriously, they couldn’t find a different photo.

  12. Good deal! Fedors goat thing could be in trouble.

  13. Shadleigh says:

    Silva is arguably if not probably the GOAT! That being said I don’t think he could dominate for another 6 years like he has since entering the UFC. Maybe another 2-3 years tops!!! Father time will catch up to him sometime. He also should go out on top. I am not saying retire right now, but I hate it when MMA and Boxing champs stay too long and tarnish their legacy.

  14. Flex monkey juice says:

    STFU you idiots. Silva is the best. He fucking kicks ass. Why don’t you idiots fight him then.fuckin bullshitters, never fought in your lives fuck ing keyboard warriors, fuck ing grow some balls!! Fuck ers.

  15. Shadleigh says:

    For all the idiots complaining about spelling and grammar GET THE FUKK OUTTA HERE!!!! this is a MMA site, not a site for fukking English majors u jack asses!

  16. justin says:

    WHAT THE FUCK IS UP WITH THAT PICTURE??????????????????????

  17. Sugar Ponybear says:

    If Randy and Dan can do it, Silva can.

  18. jon smith says:

    he’ll fight till he doesn’t know he can win anymore which is reasonable for a champ like him. He’s more than cleared his division so at this point we’ll be lucky to see him fight 2 times a year for these last 6 or less

  19. rh says:

    Weiman has a chance, like to see him fight that guy and gsp and then to be honest there isn’t really any thing left for him to do, unless he fights Jones.

  20. Ddddddd says:

    There’s nothing left for him to do? He set the
    bar in so many things why wouldn’t he be able
    to raise it in a few more? This article with this
    pic is hear to raise debate. It’s almost insulting
    to my intelligence to even respond. The rise and fall of a warrior to me is the nature of style
    being exposed. Let’s see how he holds up
    with his style as far as training,injurie,wrestlers analyzing him and componsating.
    I’m ready for an American to take his belt
    or him to learn to wrestle. Now theres something left for him to prove. Wrestle down
    a wrestler and pound him out or submit him
    from a top position.
