    Default Anderson Silva Inks New 10-Fight UFC Contract

    Anderson Silva inks new 10-fight UFC contract - Bloody Elbow



    Back in December following UFC 155, UFC president Dana White revealed that Middleweight champion Anderson Silva rejected the promotion's offer of a new 8-fight. Instead, Dana said, Silva requested a 10-fight deal. Until now, Dana's repeated a couple time that the Silva still hadn't officially renewed his contract.

    On Wednesday at a MetroPCS media event, Dana confirmed that Silva's new deal is now set. At the Q&A Dana said, "I haven't talked to Anderson in about a month, but as far as I know, it's done." White didn't elaborate on the terms of the contract.

    With the deal signed, Silva's now all set for his next title defense scheduled for July 6 at UFC 162. The undefeated Chris Weidman will challenge him for the Middleweight strap in Las Vegas, NV.

    So that ought to keep him under contract until he's 41 or 42. I can't even think of 10 good fights for him though.

    Weidman
    GSP
    Jon Jones
    Vitor Belfort again
    Cung Le
    Rockhold
    Rashad Evans

    i doubt he will complete the 10 fights... i just think this locks him in with Zuffa until he retires

    3 of those 10 fights might even be title defenses!

    So much for his retirement talks of the past. Glad he came to his senses.

    How many times has he defended his title in comparison to other champions?
