UFC legend Anderson Silva has confirmed that he will probably retire after one last fight against Uriah Hall on October 31st.
“Maybe this is my last fight,” Silva told ESPN. “That’s why I’m training hard everyday and do my best in my training. My whole team came to help me and everybody stayed in quarantine to start training, and I’m very excited because I think this is my last performance inside the cage for my fans, and we’ll see.”
Silva hasn’t been seen in the cage since a first round TKO loss to Jared Cannonier at UFC 237 last May, and with only one win to show from his last eight fights it’s clear that ‘The Spider’ is hoping for one last big victory to end his career on a high note.
“The good story is Anderson Silva fights again for the belt and win and done, but that’s in the script,” Silva said. “You can’t do this in real life, and I’m excited to continue working, continue doing something special and this fight helped me to create something huge inside my mind, for my fans, for legacy. Especially because I have a story with the UFC. I have a great story inside the cage, in the UFC too.”
