Anderson Silva is the greatest mixed martial artist to ever compete in the sport. His sheer dominance over the years has been breathtaking to watch, and it appears fans will be able to see him compete and display his exceptional striking skills for a bit longer.
Dana White confirmed that “The Spider” wants 10 more fights. This news comes via a MetroPCS chat that Dana White had with Anderson last week. This is good news for UFC fans because they will be able to see fantastic match ups with Silva in the ensuing years.
Silva is coming off a dominating TKO finish against Stephan Bonnar in the light heavyweight division. The way Silva completely eluded all of Bonnar’s shots was impressive, but the finish was amazing to see. Silva would deliver a knee to the body of Bonnar, sending him to the canvas.
There has been talks of Silva challenging George St. Pierre in a super-fight; a bout that many fans have been clamoring to see for many years now.
George St. Pierre has said he wants to fight Silva, but he wants to do it when the time is right. So, with Silva ready for ten more fights, his options are vast. Waiting for GSP, Silva could challenge Chris Weidman. Weidman has risen through the ranks in the middleweight division, beating the likes of Demian Maia and Mark Munoz.
If there was any fighter to give Silva a run for his money, it’s Weidman. A Michael Bisping fight seems appropriate if he can get past Vitor Belfort, which takes place next year. Whatever is next for Silva, it looks like he is here to stay in the UFC for years to come.
