Naaa. I have a lot of respect for athletes who withdraw when they are at the very top of their game. The trouble is, they are a very rare breed. I totally dont enjoy watching fighters who touched the stars slowly degrade into mediocre rubbish collecting high paychecks. I appreciate their need to do it... but I dont enjoy it.
If Silva wins and retires, all the remaining MW's will never know if they could have beat him or not. It'll be a yardstick that MW's will be measured against for years to come. Thats what you call a legacy. It would be a beautiful thing.
