ďIím old, guys. Iím getting old. Iím retired. Iím nearly there. Iíve only got another five years. I think [GSP] would be a great challenge for me. I prefer him over Jon Jones. Heís smaller. Itíll be a little bit easier. Iíll be hit less.Ē
While talking to the media following last Saturdayís dominant win over Stephan Bonnar, the pound-for-pound king, Anderson Silva discussed whats next in super fights.
Is his assessment correct? Is GSP an easier bout than Jon Jones?
Kind of an odd series of comments. Basically saying he is near retirement but then saying he will fight another 5 years. At least he is honest about his reasons for wanting GSP, but it would seem that Anderson isn't as excited about challenging himself as he comes to the end (in five years???) of his career.
Still, a lot can happen if he really wants to stay in the game another 5 years. I honestly thought he only had 4-5 fights left.
