    Indeed, but I think he's done after 3-4 fights.

    Lets hope.

    I doubt there are 10 MW challengers out there right now for him to fight so I bet a couple of those 10 could be at different weight classes.

    Surprised he actually signed a 10-fight deal ... I can't see him consistently fighting 3 times a year for the next 3 years at his age.

    Regardless, war Spider - the greatest ever.

    I can see him moving up to 205 after one or two title defenses.

    On the wave of MMA taking over the world.
    The purpose of offering Silva a 10 fight contract is to make sure he's locked up with the UFC when he retires and can't fight for any other promotion without the UFC's OK. It's business tactic and a smart one of the UFC's part. He's not fighting 10 more times.

    I personally think once Silva decides to retire he should be able to do whatever he wants. I think that's obviously in his best interest, but the UFC will NOT let that happen.

    I think it would be a mistake for Anderson to stay around that long. 3 more fights and he should retire while at the top. Some aggressive wrestler will give him trouble sooner or later and his legacy will be tarnished, no matter how great he was.

    Anderson must be planning on taking some risky fights--if he was confident that he'd keep winning he wouldn't want such a long contract.

    all this.

    Silva must have realised long ago he'll never get that Roy Jones Jr. fight.
