Anderson Silva will not retire until...

However it is now understood that Anderson will not quit until he gets US citizenship, and that having the backing of the Fertitas would give a massive boost to his application.


According to SunSport current middleweight champ Anderson “The Spider” Silva will keep fighting until he gets granted a Green Card by the US government, and not only that but he states that he is unhappy with the fights he is being given and wants to fight 6 times a year. UFC president had something to say about that

“He wants to fight six times a year. It makes my job harder but I love it. This guy and Chuck Liddell don't care, they'll fight whoever you put in front of them."

Silva's manager Ed Soares said that Silva wants the big, high profile fights wherever they take place, in or outside of the UFC.

Just give the man 6 fights a year so he doesn't retire next year.

Man, Silva is so awesome. I don't mean to nuthug, but I just can't help myself. He isn't just willing to fight the best fighters they can find at whatever weight they want him to fight at, he actually WANTs to do it. Six times a year. AND he's a class act.

I'd love to see him beating all of the best at 205 too and grabbing that belt - not because I'm not a fan of any 205ers (just the opposite,) but because it'd really be a shame if he retires before he really reaches his potential. I think if he applied himself he could hold the middleweight and lightheavyweight belts at the same time, and keep them for a few years.

Im far from a Silva fanboy, but the guy is so good its scary. And im starting to become a fan of his. Poor Cote, this fight shouldnt even be happening. Id like to see him fight Chuck. I think it would do HUGE numbers and there isnt anyone at MW that deserves to fight him IMO

MW Tournament anyone?

He could fight twice the same night, 2 title defenses in one night

Silva vs Okami
Henderson vs Maia

Then Silva vs the winner.

Then, 3 months later, LHW tournament


Forrest vs Rashad
Silva vs Wand/Shogun/Page

That's 4 fights, imagine they do it and he wins it all, wouldn't it be awesome?

Technically, they're not... just takes longer. You just have to STAY married for a few years while they process your green card, and have all kinds of proof of marriage in the meantime. Then 3 years after a green card, get the citizenship. Lol, I can just imagine Silva being living in a trailer with some fattie and her 8 kids for years while he gets his citizenship.

Dude I'm married to a woman from Mexico and can tell you first hand its not that easy. We've been married for 6 years and have a nearly 6 year old son. What experience do you have to back up your claim cause my wife and son are having to live in Mexico while I'm stuck here in the U.S. because like I said, its not that easy
