I'm one of the latter.
I'd actually rather have Anderson retire than fight six more years of cherrypicked bouts, and I say that as an Anderson fan.
I'm on the fence. I'm an Anderson fan as well (only over the past maybe 2 years though). I'm not particularly for Anderson-Jones or Anderson-GSP (as GSP/Jones are my top two fighters with Silva in the top 5 I'd say)... I would like to see him keep fighting though at MW regardless if it's against Weidman, Bisping, etc.
I know he's pretty much cleared out MW and is looking for super-fights / hand-picked fights, but I'd like to see him keep dominating at 185 til he retires I think.
I'd still buy the super-fight cards though.
