Anderson Silva ‘Loves’ Competing In MMA, Wants To Do So For Six More Years

UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva has fielded the retirement question for the past few years now.

Despite being 37 years old, Silva has proven time and time again that he is one of the elite fighters of all-time. Now, in an interview with the Brazilian newspaper Estadao, “The Spider” is revealing that he has another six years left in his body.

I guess you can see more like six years of fighting (left). I love what I do. The team that works with me does a fantastic job. I’ve never had a serious injury that took myself away from competition. So, I think I have this a little while longer.

Silva has won all 15 of his UFC fights, setting records for most successful title defenses. He recently defeated Chael Sonnen for a second time, and is currently rumored to be headed towards a super-fight with UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre.
