Thread: Anderson Silva has not signed a new contract despite reports from Dana White

    Anderson Silva has not signed a new contract despite reports from Dana White - Bloody Elbow



    Back in December, UFC president Dana White made a big deal about Middleweight champion Anderson Silva refusing to sign an 8-fight contract to renew his commitment with the UFC. Instead, according to White, Silva insisted on a 10-fight contract. Following UFC 155, White said that Silva will sign a 10-fight deal at the post-fight media scrum.

    However, after UFC On FX 7 Saturday night, Silva said that he has not signed a new contract with the UFC yet. Josh Gross of ESPN reported via Twitter:

    I've confirmed that Anderson Silva has not signed a new contract with the UFC. No idea why Dana White said he did. Hope someone asks him.

    Silva confirmed Gross's statement in an interview after Saturday's event. However, Dana did seem very confident that the UFC's most impressive champion will sign the contract. Additionally, when asked about his next title defense Silva said "I need to talk to Dana and Lorenzo."

    i actually dont remember him every saying AS signed the contract. I remember him saying they were going to sign him to the 10 fight deal that AS was asking for.

    Is it just me, or is it hard to take anything reported by ESPN seriously when it relates to MMA (and NHL)?

    Perhaps retirement is in his future?

    Poor Anderson won't get to squelch Bisping for a easy payday.
