    I can tell Silva is starting to age pretty quickly. I was watching him do an interview the other day on Youtube and you can see the age around his eyes. Win, lose or draw much like Tito Ortiz I highly doubt he Is going to finish up his contract.

    I have him at a max of 3 more fights with probably the last being Jon Jones. I have a feeling that is who Silva will pass the torch to.
    Anderson Silva:
    Best Fighter on the planet.

    Weidman: I'm ready for a submission, KO, or war
    http://www.mixedmartialarts.com/news...ion-KO-or-war/
    Anderson Silva's overarching excellent is inescapable, but Chris Weidman says it isn't getting into his head.

    "Anderson has definitely beat a lot of guys before they even walked in the cage," said Weidman said. "He has a certain reputation that he's earned for himself, and he deserves that because he's beat the crap out of guys for a while. But he's not going to have that with me.

    "I'm not going down because I'm not confident and just want to see how I do in there. I'm in there to win this fight, and that's it. I'm going for the finish. There's nothing he could do or say that's going to stop me. He's just another guy to me that I'm trying to tear through."

    This is not simply empty bravado.

    Weidman has a bachelor's degree in psychology, was a two-time Div I All American, has a brown belt from Matt Serra/Renzo Gracie, and is undefeated in MMA, most recently crushing highy decorated wrestler Mark Munoz.

    Fans are drawing comparisons to the Chael Sonnen, who gave Anderson Silva his greatest test to date. However, Weidman says he can do more.

    "I appreciate what they're saying," said Weidman. "But I also feel like I haven't gotten to show a lot of what I can do."

    Weidman had his first professional training camp for this fight, under the tutelage of the almost mystical, almost mythical John Danaher. Danaher brought in kickboxer Stephen Thompson and boxer Adam Willett to mimic Silva's style.

    In the end though, Weidman said it came down to hard work.

    "There are no tricks," said Weidman. "It just comes down to every day, no matter who you're going with or what you're doing, working as hard as you possibly can. I did that before this camp, and now I just did it a little smarter. But I still did the same thing: Every time I come in, I just work as hard as I can."

    "I'm prepared for a full five-round absolute war with things going his way and against me, just so I can battle through it and show heart, almost show a Frankie Edgar-like heart."

    "I'm ready for that, but I'm also ready to take him down and submit him away. I'm ready to punch him in the face and knock him out. That would be ideal. But either way, a victory is good for me."


    Silva: In my house I have a guessing tree, but...
    http://www.mixedmartialarts.com/news...sing-tree-but/
    "In my house, there is a guessing tree," said Silva. "But it never guesses anything right."

    Silva is not young. In contrast, Fedor Emelianenko who went 0-3 against high level competition before going 3-0 against lesser fighters and retired, is two years younger. So why does Silva fight on?

    "What motivates me is to be able to do what I love to do, which is to fight," said Silva through an interpreter. "I love to fight. I love the preparation. I love to learn new things, always overcoming myself. I love being in the gym and everything involved in it."

    Does Silva think he the GOAT? He never told his manager, Ed Soares.

    "He's never said to me that he thinks he's the greatest," said Soares. "What he's said is, 'Ed, I think I can do things that other people think are impossible.'"

    "I really believe he'll know when to hang it up. But right now, he seems to be getting better and better."

    Does Silva even worry about his legacy? UFC president Dana White says yes, and more.

    "He does care about his legacy," said White. "And none of them like to say it in public - he cares about making money, too."

    Silva was asked what was missing - beating Weidman, a superfight with GSP, a superfight with Jon Jones - for him to see himself as the greatest?.

    "It's not one specific thing," said The Spider. "It's not that there's something missing. It's just a question of being able to say that once I'm finished.

    "Maybe one day when I'm retired, I can turn around and tell you, 'Hey, I was really good at that. Maybe I was the best.'"
