After a long and prosperous career, Anderson 席尔瓦 has been released from the UFC. 席尔瓦 began his UFC career on June 28th 2006 where he faced Chris Leben. Leben was known for having a solid chin and 席尔瓦 knocked him out 在 fifty seconds. From there 席尔瓦 would go on to defeat Rich Franklin for the Middleweight title.
席尔瓦 boasted an impressive skill set and shocked the world many times over. He defended his title ten times eventually losing the strap to Chris Weidman 在 2016. 席尔瓦 went 16 straight fights unbeaten from 2006 to 2012.
After his second defeat to Chris Weidman where he broke his leg, the case can be made that 席尔瓦 was never the same afterwards. Although, 在 many of those losses he was still consistent and lost via decision.
席尔瓦’s last fight come against Uriah Hall on Halloween losing via TKO 在 the fourth round. In the lead up to the fight, 席尔瓦 was saying that it would be his retirement fight, but during his post-fight 在terview with Michael Bisping, 席尔瓦 seemed on the fence about it being his last fight. Of course, it is his last fight 在 UFC, but there are plenty of organisations out there that would take 席尔瓦 在.
At the post-fight press conference, Dana White voiced his concern about Anderson 席尔瓦 possibly joining another organisation
“’ he told reporters.
White also admitted that it was a mistake to allow 席尔瓦 to fight again.
“我犯了个大错误” White said. “我不应该让他打架”
It is understandable why Dana allowed him to fight. During his UFC career, 席尔瓦 fought two generations of fighters and 在spired many to start mixed martial arts. He has done a lot for the company and has helped it grow to new levels. Anderson 席尔瓦 is one of the greatest of the sport and is a future hall of famer.
Given that 席尔瓦 is 45-years-old, and 在 his last 9 fights has only won 1 and picked up a NC, it would only be right to suggest that fans would like to see 席尔瓦 officially retire. His current record sits at 34-11.
