Anderson Silva Indicates Final Foe

The final competitor that Anderson Silva could compete against in the Ultimate Fighting Championship is Uriah Hall. UFC fans have clamoured for the return of Anderson Silva, the former middleweight champion that defended his belt for ten back-to-back fights. The legacy of Silva isn’t entirely over, with it being known two fights remain for Anderson in his UFC contract. The Middleweight Champ is now revealing that his final bout could be against Uriah Hall on October 31st at UFC Fight Night. It’d mark the end of a 22-Year Era, with Silva first entering professional fighting in 1998.

Anderson Silva spoke with ESPN on the upcoming bout, where he’d evoke that this will likely be his last fight in professional combat sports. Anderson noted that the level of training being done daily is to do his absolute best while thanking his team for preparation over the last few weeks. The former Middleweight Champion remarked hope that he’ll dominate over Uriah Hall, and that his previous performance can be memorable for his long-time supporters.

MMA Sports Reporters have questioned Dana White (UFC President) on what he believes the future holds for Anderson Silva.

White finalized his statements by saying “Yes, it will be Anderson’s last UFC fight”.

The Hope for UFCs GOAT

Few UFC fighters contend for the title of “Greatest of all Time”. He is considered the competitions longest-running champion, holding onto the Middleweight Championship Belt from 2006 to 2013. Multiple other fighters contest his GOAT status. Those include Daniel Cormier, Nick Diaz, Vitor Belfort, Dan Henderson, Forrest Griffin, Rich Franklin, Chris Weidman, and Michael Bisping.

The ultimate hope & desire for Anderson Silva is to reclaim his Middleweight Championship, then retire from the UFC while riding off into the sunset. However, Anderson is aware that it’s unlikely he’ll become a champion again from defeating Uriah Hall. That’s because Anderson Silva has lost six of the last several bouts he’s fought in the UFC.
