| Anderson Silva Would Like To Fight For Six More Years - Bloody Elbow
UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva is 37 years old, but apparently he's not thinking about slowing down or retiring anytime soon. In an interview with Brazilian newspaper Estadao, he thinks he can go for a while longer. Six years longer: |
"I guess you can see more like six years of fighting. I love what I do. The team that works with me does a fantastic job. I've never had a serious injury that took myself away from competition. So I think I have this a little while longer."

“The biggest is the Bruce Lee fan I am. I especially like the philosophy of it. But I’m also a fan of Muhammad Ali and Roy Jones Jr. are guys for whom I tip my hat, get my black belt. Outside the ring, I would say Michael Jordan, Pele and Ronaldo. People think I say this because of my contract with 9ine, but it is not. It was long before Ronaldo fan… I would like to have known [Bruce Lee] and to have had lessons with him. But not risk a fight with Bruce Lee, no.” |
In an interview with Brazilian newspaper, estadao.com.br, UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva talked about his idol Bruce Lee and proclaimed that if alive he would never take on the martial arts legend in a fight.
Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
