Confirmed: Anderson Silva signs new 10 fight deal with UFC

Quote:


UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva told UFC President Dana White not long ago that he wanted a new 10-fight deal. According to White himself, he's got one.

Signed, sealed, delivered.

It wasn't long ago that Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White revealed his Middleweight Champion, Anderson Silva, was offered an declined a new eight-fight contract with the promotion.

His reason for declining? "The Spider" wanted two fights added to the deal.

According to White after last night's (Dec. 29) UFC 155 event, that's exactly what they did, and Silva is now may be signed to the longest contract in UFC history (via MMA Weekly):

Quote:
"Ten. He signed a 10-fight deal. I don't think we've ever done a 10-fight deal. Maybe we did one with Forrest once, I don't remember, but Anderson said, ‘I want a 10-fight deal, not an eight-fight deal.' I'll give him a 100-fight deal if he wants one."
We can't realistically expect the Brazilian to fulfill a contract like that, assuming it comes to be. He's 37-years-old right now, and he'll be 38 come April of next year. Assuming he maintains his current pace of fighting twice a year, that would mean competing until he's 43, not an impossible feat -- Randy Couture says "hi" -- but not one we can expect out of professional martial artists in today's super competitive landscape.

Then again, the Brazilian hasn't sustained a ton of damage throughout his career and has never once been knocked out. A decline is expected at some point but there's no telling when that will be.

Within the next 10 bouts? That's probably safe to say.

Either way, it almost feels like we should simply be grateful to watch the greatest of all time to continue to ply his craft inside the Octagon.

That's probably 3, maybe even up to 5 more years of Anderson in the UFC, wow that's great news. I wonder if he can stay on top for 10 more fights?

I'd sign em for a 100 fights...lolz!

Damn you GSP for not taking this super fight. Might not be another opportunity. They were supposed to fight after the Anderson and Maia bout.

Current wish list.

10.) Nick Diaz
9.) Frank Mir (first fight in the HW division. I actually fear for Anderson cuz if Frank grabs a hold of a leg it's over. But I think Anderson will drill em.)
8.) Weidman
7.) Bisping
6.) Lombard
5.) Shogun
4.) Gegard Mousassi
3.) Lyoto Machida (I've always wanted to see how this pans out.)
2.) GSP
1.) LHW title holder

Bonus: He finally fights RJJ. I also wonder how he'd do against Fedor.

I bet he can for quite a while, he takes so little damage in fights he looks healthier than 99% of the UFC roster.

Awesome! Hopefully Anderson can be the middleweight Couture and still be champion into his 40s.
