Found this and was curious if anyone else has heard more of the interview on it?
I don’t see anything necessarily wrong with it from his perspective. His body is in great shape, no major injuries, he’s on top, already proved himself and is king of the middleweights, BUT it sure does suck for us fight fans doesn’t it?!! It would be great to see him clean house in light heavy, or stay in the game at middleweight, but with what he’s said according to this report, about the only thing I can think of that might change his mind would be a bigger check with more zero’s in it, lol. Even that might not sway the guy though as he’s more than comfortable already.
Anyway didn’t see anything here on this and thought it would make for some good conversation.
"UFC middleweight champion, Anderson Silva was recently interviewed by Brazilian cable channel Sensei. The TV show, featuring Spider, will air on September 27, but the editors released a shocking exert from the interview with Silva, when the champion spoke on his retirement from MMA:
“I’ll retire next year, I already gave my all. I don’t need to prove anything for anyone and within one year I’ll put my gloves aside.”
Ana Hissa, the editor who contacted us with this breaking news, was emphatic, saying that Silva mentioned retirement several times. This was unimaginable for them because Silva is in the best stage of his career and is the king pin of UFC’s 185 pound division.
We where unable to reach the fighter to add more on this bombastic interview or to know if he’ll leave MMA and move to Pro Boxing."
Wonder what Dana White’s going to have to say about it eh guys?!
