Anderson Silva Says October 31st Fight Will be His Last
By FCF Staff
It looks like the UFC’s October 31st card will mark the end of Anderson Silva’s storied career, as the legend says he will retire after facing Uriah Hall.
Not long ago, UFC President Dana White reported that he believed Silva would retire after fighting Hall. In a recent interview with MMA Junkie, the 45-year-old Silva said this.
“This is the last fight,” Silva said. “For sure, this is the last fight. Probably. I love the sport. I’ve prepared my mind for this. I’ve prepared for fight my entire life, but yes, this is my last fight in UFC.”
And when asked what he’ll miss the most about fighting, the former middleweight champ stated:
“I think (I’ll miss) the training (the most),” Silva said. “Preparing my mind, preparing my body. This I think is most important and I feel sad because I don’t have this anymore. This is the last one.”
Silva (34-10) hasn’t fought since May, 2019, when he incurred a knee injury and lost via TKO to Jared Cannonier. The legend’s last win took place in 2017, when Silva defeated Derek Brunson via unanimous decision.
The UFC’s October 31st card will take place at the Apex Facility in Las Vegas.
