    Anderson said he is open to fighting outside the UFC after his last fight. Thing is he has 2 fights left and I don’t think UFC will release him with a fight left.

    If he gets released or fights his last fight I would like him to fight Fedor.

    Let’s hope UFC to release him because I think Bellator would put him in some interesting fights.

    A fight against some of the old guard at 205lbs would be fun if Fedor didn’t work out. Rampage or Tito would be fun too.

    Hopefully he decides to retire. He's a multi-millionaire in his late 40's now, time for him to just chill and enjoy life. If he wants to be involved in MMA I hope it's coaching others.

    If Fedor doesn't get Wandy or Tito for his final fights, I would like Fedor Vs Silva. They are both so far past their best, but it'd be intriguing, like Tyson Vs Roy.

    If so, make Mousasi vs Silva.
    No title, just two legends.

    Silva vs Moose
    Silva vs Fedor

    He was st**id for staying in the UFC fighting guys like Cannonier, Hall and Brunson that does nothing for his legacy. Same with Shogun fighting Craig, Pedro and Villante LOL

    They would get much better fights in Bellator

    Cant beat guys like Cannonier, Hall and Brunson, we all know Brunson won that fight but you want him to fight HW Fedor and Mousasi at 45 years old.

    HW Fedor is 10 years past his prime and everyone wanted to see Moose vs Silva. He fought DC and Israel not long ago..

    Why any of you guys want to see him fighting again is beyond me.

    i hope he retires...

    So...with 1 fight left on his contract, after this one...i dont think the UFC will let him fight somewhere else.

    Edit
    Its already not fun to see him fight anymore...
    DC took it super light on him, the Israel fight looked like a sparring contest, still think he lost against Brunson and Cannonier finished him with a lowkick....

    If Anderson leaves the ufc, the ufc only fanboys will say he was never any good and discredit his whole career. Just like they do with everyone who leaves the ufc, even if it's for more money. They will also rewrite history and say they got cut.

    Cant do that unless he retires then his contract will freeze with a fight left on it. If he doesnt want to retire UFC is gonna have to offer him that final fight or eventually his contract will expire.

    He's def not retiring, he can still make money and I'm sure boxing Roy Jones is something he'll want to do, maybe Bellator, maybe One or Rizin. He's got plenty of options for a big name legend like him even if he's losing fights. Lot will be decided tomorrow. If he can win, beat a top 15 MW the UFC might just give him that final fight.

    DC was four and half years ago, TBF.

    If I'm Coker I sign him and feed him to Moose or up and coming guys.

    Anderson is 45yo. I don't think many would consider a win over him legitimate these days.

    ..yeah...thats right Roy is an option.
    Didnt he want to fight him years and years ago?...(i remember Ralph Gracie did)

    I think ONE could be a pretty good fit for Silva, since he doesnt have to cut weight all the way down to 185...if he wants to be at MW over there...

    No weightclass for him at Muay Thai...
    They do have a Kickboxing division at 225...but i dont know if he wants to do that.

    Roy sounds like a great option...

    I dont know about BellatorMMA...do they really need another old ass UFC fighter?
    For their views...sure....it would help.


    Whatever Org Silva will choose they will definetly benifit of his name and get a very very nice boost of attention.
    I think Rizin could need a fucking boost...


    ONE sounds like the best option for me if he wants to keep going with mma...
    He can juice (if he wants), they will treat him like a god, he could possibly fight in 3 different weight divisions (WW,MW,LHW) and could have a little kickboxing adventure...and they will pay him good money too...

    Dude needs to retire. He's just milking the rest of that huge long term contract the UFC should have never have signed with him...

    If his finances are not in order at this point, they will never be.

    If he leaves and they really try to discredit the most dominat MW champion in UFC history...those people really have some low IQ.
    Its like saying when Shaq (had to) left LA...and Lakers fans say: well he wasnt that good anyways...

    I love Anderson but people crediting him for his performance against DC is ridiculous. He got smoked and landed one nice body kick. He looked solid against Izzy but it’s clear Izzy has evolved a lot each fight.

    Andy needs to retire considering he hasn’t won a fight since Sonnen? Bonnar? That Brunson decision was a joke. Rarely do you see an outright robbery in the UFC but that was certainly one of them.
