The previous middleweight kingpin was stopped by Corridor in the fourth round of their ESPN headliner at UFC APEX in Las Vegas. And even though the consequence was decisive, Silva’s future was something but.
Talking to his former opponent, UFC commentator and ex-middleweight champ Michael Bisping, “The Spider” said he would consult with his spouse and children prior to creating a ultimate final decision.
“I never know, to start with I go again residence, and I go see with my staff [about] every thing,” he said. “It’s rough to say it’s my past, simply because this is my air. Let us go see.”
Fighters still compensated tribute to Silva as if he will hold up his gloves. Here’s what they had to say.
Hope that’s the close for Anderson. He is a legend!
