Dana White: Anderson Silva could end his career with a fight vs. Jon Jones or GSPPosted on December 20, 2011, 10:09 AM by Anton Gurevich
Ultimate Fighting Championship president Dana White revealed he would like to see the promotion's Middleweight Champion, Anderson "The Spider" Silva, ending his career against either Georges St. Pierre or Jon Jones. According to White, Anderson Silva has two more title defenses at Middleweight, before he can get to his "super fight duties".
“He’s probably the greatest fighter in history. He hasn’t lost and has been champion since 2006. I think he has two more title defenses and I do not know what he’ll do next or if he will retire. He could end his career with a super fight against Jon Jones or Georges St. Pierre. He could end his career like that – fight in a different weight class. I would be happy with that. Then he could take a boat and sail into the sunset.”
Thirty-six year old UFC Middleweight Champion is currently 31-4 in his career, enjoying an unbeaten run inside the Octagon since his debut against Chris "The Crippler" Leben at UFC Fight Night 5 event, back in 2006. Since then, Anderson Silva defended his title 9 times. Silva ended 9 of his fights inside the Octagon via KO/TKO, and 3 via Submission.
Anderson Silva's next opponent is expected to be determined at the conclusion of UFC on FOX 2 co-main event collision between Chael Sonnen and Mark Munoz. One of the original Ultimate Fighters, Michael "The Count" Bisping, is also currently in the mix for a title shot, looking to prove his worth against the former title challenger Demian Maia, also at UFC on FOX 2.
