Anyway, I see no problem with this. To think that Anderson isn't all kinds of special and couldn't fight well into his 40s is nonsense. People say that Couture's situation was unique, blah, blah, blah... as if Anderson himself isn't a unique fighter. He's taken very little damage. He's rarely gone the distance. His body is likely holding up better than most.
Fully agreed.

IMO it's just AS being AS - he says a lot of things and then changes his mind. Even if he signed such a contract, he can retire when he wants - can't force someone to fight, after all. Worst case is it's him wanting to pad his legacy by fighting more sub-par fighters. (being a bit facetious there)
