It appears as though fans can look forward to many more fights from Anderson Silva, as the renowned UFC Middleweight Champion is close to signing a reported, 10 fight deal extension.

According to multiple reports, UFC President Dana White relayed this week in New York that the contract extension for the 38 year-old-fighter is “going to get done.”

Of course, due to the fact Silva is almost 40 years old, it remains to be seen whether the champion will in fact fight out the contract, as White reportedly noted. No details regarding whether the contract has a time limit were provided.

Silva (33-4) is preparing for a July 6th tilt with rising star Chris Weidman (9-0), which will headline UFC 162 in Las Vegas. The champion will bring an awe inspiring 17 fight win streak into the bout.
