    I guess this gives a new meaning to Anderson Silva money.

    Hes faught just as much or more than the other champions in the UFC;

    Dominick Cruz - 2011 (2 fights, Urijah Faber and Demitrious Johnson)

    Jose Aldo - 2012 (1 fight, Chad Mendes) 2011 (2 fights, Kenny Florian, Mark Hominick)

    Ben Henderson - *one of the exceptions, faught 3 times in 2012, 2011 and 2010. He is also 29 years old.*

    GSP - 2012 (1 fight, Carlos Condit) 2011 (1 fight, Jake Sheilds) 2010 (2 fights, Josh Koscheck and Dan Hardy)

    Bones Jones - 2012 (2 fights, Vitor Belfort and Rashad Evans) 2011 *exception* (4 fights, Machida, Rampage, Shogun, Bader)

    JDS (at the time) - 2012 (2 fights, Frank Mir and Cain) 2011 ( 2 fights, Cain and Carwin)

    See where i am going with this...he fights just as often as everyone else.

    Great, that should be another 7 years or so with the rate that he fights.

    Yeah they can retire at anytime. But if they retire with fights left on the contract they can't come back and fight in another org unless they finish their contractual obligations with the ufc first.

I would imagine there are some performance-based clauses as well that the UFC required for a 10 fight deal to save their butt if he starts to Chuck Liddell.

    Who knows though. I don't see him completing the deal just due to age/time. He shoulda stuck with 5, but probably got Anderson Silva money to do 10.
    Yeah I think you're right, Silva has more leverage when it comes to negotiation than probably anybody else in MMA. Silva is not exactly short of a bob or two, but even so I'm sure he'll be getting some crazy figures for his next few fights, and I think you're right, there are probably a number of clauses in the contract to protect both parties if things do go down hill.

    Good point man. I guess it's inevitable with the sport being like it is that fighters will eventually succumb to nagging injuries, or serious ones, and there's not much the UFC or anybody else can do about it.

    On a side-note; who is that in your avatar? I need to become acquainted with that booty!
