I definitely want him to stick around for awhile, but 10 fights is a bit extreme I would say.

Because he's been subbed twice?

He was dominated by a wrestler with inferior ju-jitsu for 23 minutes?

The only time he's ever been in danger is when he's fought grapplers?

I can think of a few reasons why people think that, watch some of his fights beside Maia and maybe you'll see it too...

This.

I learned a long time ago to not take anything Anderson says seriously. Just sit back and enjoy watching the master fight while you still can guys.

Highly doubt he sticks around for 10 or 12 more fights. He probably just doesn't now how long he wants to keep fighting and doesn't want to go through contract talk anymore.

Look at Roy Jones Jr.'s chin, basically untouchable until he came back down from HW.

But on the topic, of course it would be great if they could sign him for 10 more fights. He doesn't have to fulfill the contact but it ties him up until he is ready to retire at least. Regardless if he slows down or not the guy is almost a guarantee (since Chael I) to put on a performance that nobody will forget.

A few Anderson matchups that at least generate interest if anything, not necessarily him losing.

JBJ vs. Anderson
GSP vs. Silva
Bisping vs. Silva Big UK Following
Weidman vs. Silva Possibly difficult wrestler (not sure)

Beyond those 4 which could set the timetable at least 2 years from now there could be a few more potential fights out there but I wouldn't mind seeing these matchups in no particular order.

Meh, doesn't really matter. Silva is the man and can fight however long he wants. He could go on a 5-fight losing streak and I would still want to see him fight. He's absorbed so little damage anyway that his age won't show.

Sure he can lose to CW, but cmon, this excuse is as busted as busted were Anderson's ribs. When have you seen Anderson behaving like that in any fight? Sonnen was too good for him, but short later struggle against Bisping?
Btw, he wasn't dominated, he was held down and he destroyed Sonnen's face from his back.
Not a dent on Anderson's face, man.

Btw, ppl tired of seeing Anderson winning probably were also tired of Mike Tyson KO streaks, so boring...(???)

I'm aware he didn't have a mark on his face but Weidman and Sonnen aren't the same fighter, Bisping is a better wrestler than Anderson and Chael still won that fight 30-27 in my eyes.

Weidman is far more dangerous on the ground than Chael and the only guys to threaten Anderson are Travis Lutter and Dan Henderson, grapplers, there's a reason for that and neither of them have the kind of pedigree Weidman has. Weidman just needs a big name to showcase his skills against so I'm hoping he gets the Vitor/Bisping winner to beat up, since flavor of the month is gonna get beat by Okami in a few weeks. People just don't get how good he is yet but annihilating Bisping or Vitor should get the job done and set him up to fight Anderson.

Also, I highly doubt any UFC fighter has ever fought with broke/cracked ribs, they do medicals before the fight and if you have a broken rib and you get hit in them, you'd probably be in so much you couldn't stand it.

Anyone who doesn't give Chael his due in the first fight is just making excuses. I'm sure they make you feel better, but delusions are delusions. Here's a fact... Sonnen cracked Silva's ribs.

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.

Sonnen sure has credit on being the attacker and being relentless and he is a great wrestler IMO, but cmon, Anderson could not even stand with him. Throwing lousy punches, often losing his balance, getting caught, just ... not Anderson.

Probably with his face by the look of it. Now this would be dellusional.

Btw. I had a cracked rib already that went undetected by the first clinic I've been. It hurted like hell and sneezeing or coughing was a nightmare. Only a month later on pain killers a second clinic confirmed there was a small crack, almost fully healed by that. So I have my own idea of all this.
