Anderson Silva Inks 10-Fight Contract Extension

It looks like “The Spider” may end his career with the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

Anderson Silva signed a new 10-fight contract. UFC President Dana White confirmed at the Herald Square Takeover in Manhattan, N.Y. yesterday that the middleweight champion signed the contract.

Before Silva signed the contract, he had two fights remaining with Zuffa. One of those fights will be his upcoming title defense fight against Chris Weidman. Silva (33-4), who is undefeated in the UFC, will go head-to-head with Weidman (9-0) at UFC 162: Silva vs. Weidman at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nev. slated on July 6, 2013.

White also said Silva signed the long-term deal this past December. But one month later, Silva’s manager, Ed Soares, said the deal was not inked yet.

Silva is the UFC’s longest reigning champion and also holds the longest winning and title defense streak in the promotion. He holds 16 consecutive wins in the UFC and 10 title defenses.

        Listen, quiet the voices in your head. That’s right that’s the end of the mediocre champ’s time at mw. Silva’s time is up.

          Mediocre?? He has easily defeated 90 percent of his opponents the UFC has given him, and he was pretty damn good before he got to the UFC as well. Sonnen has been the only one to give him a challenge. Griffin, Bonnar, Lieben, Marquardt, Belfort, Meia, Cote, Franklin, they have all looked like fools in the ring with him. Please, explain the mediocre part.
