I would absolutely love Anderson Silva fight for 10 more years. However, I don't think we can really trust what Silva says about his career anymore. He seems to be coming up with a different timeline after every fight. Probably just trolling us.

Anderson Silva
Aldo - Dos Anjos - Mayday - Weidman - Machida - Jones

Probably just BS, no way he lasts another ten fights at his age. Someone will beat him whether it be Weidman or Jones and if Jones beats him I could see him retiring, either way he's definitely gonna lose within the next ten fights.

So if he has two fights left in his current contract, does that mean that this would be 10+2=12 or just 10 with a renegotiation for the last two? Either way I say it's a bad move on his part. I certainly don't want to see his last fights go the way of Fedor's. However I do love watching him fight, so it's kind of conflicting for me. Personally I'd like him to sign for another 5 fights on top of the two he's already contracted to fight. Seven fights 3 to 3 1/2 years, and he'll be what 41? Certainly a better time to renegotiate or retire depending on the circumstances. I seem to remember that Anderson has had a lot of surgeries in his last couple years, seems like he might have a lot harder time in his later years.

Honestly Anderson could probably sign a 600 fight contract and if he wanted to retire after 2, Dana would probably let him. He's earned the right to call his own shots basically at this point and until he starts getting KO'd like Chuck did as he got older I see no reason to force him out. Just let Anderson do what he wants as long as it's not anything too drastic. Glad he still has passion for the sport though, he probably is trolling but this at least says he still is interested.

"You either retire the greatest or fight long enough to see yourself become Chuck Lidell"

flesh of my flesh,
and mind of my mind,
two of a kind but one won't survive,
my images reflect in the enemies eye,
and his images reflect in mine the same time

I'm okay with this in the biggest way. I am also not worried about a decline in the least bit. People keep saying they're afraid Anderson is going to slow down, or that maybe he already has, but to me on the flip side of that, I truly believe the man is hitting harder than ever... and he just keeps getting better!!

As far as remaining undefeated? Well that of course remains to be seen, but, I personally think Anderson Silva is the kind of guy who in the event of defeat would want to personally put the belt around the waist of the new champion then retire on the spot with a smile on his face... don't know why, that's just how I think it would go down.

I'm really hoping Bisping defeates Vitor cause I'm MUCH more interested in that fight than another Vitor match.
