UFC Middleweight champion Anderson “The Spider” Silva told the Brazilian cable channel SporTV:
“I’ll retire next year, I already gave my all. I don’t need to prove anything for anyone and within one year I’ll put my gloves aside.”
A shocking statement from the pound for pound best fighter in the world. Is he tired of he spotlite? Does he have that much of a nest egg stashed away in this mattress? Or could it be just Silva messing around with the cable channel. Wasn’t Silva quoted saying he would be fighting Roy Jones Jr. whether the UFC liked it or not.
