    Silva is top 3 greatest fighters ever. If he loses would you like to see him retire? If SIlva loses I wouldn't mind seeing him retire. If he were to lose again there is no way he will be booked in any of the fights I personally would like to see him in, mainly Jones. I dont see any compelling fights for a non champion Silva.

    I find every fight Silva is in compelling.

    i'll continue to watch him fight if he continues to fight.

    like Hughes. spending years at #1 only to end your career in the top 10ish is no insult. well, i suppose on anonymous forums it's unforgivable, but in real life - outside of this anonymous 4th-grade-like-logic and 2nd-grade-level-insult playground - it's completely fine.

    He will lose to Weidman again in the rematch. I think Silva still has a few good fights in him though.

    WAR Weidman!!!

    No. He should retire on a win

    I wish he would have retired after beating Sonnen again. Ended his career on a high note, after a huge win against a tough challenger.

    If he beats Weidman, I hope he retires. If he loses, ugh I dont wanna even think about that.

    i would like silva to do whatever he wants.

    i hate how fans somehow think they deserve a say in when fighters retire.

    Whatever he wants to do. He should probably go out on a win, maybe just fight another name guy, someone like Belfort.

    I would like to see him retire once he stops enjoying fighting.

    If he looses the rematch,I would be intrigued to see who they match him up against.My guess would be a fringe top 10 to get him back in the win column.

    You should retire from Sherdog Forums after this post.

    No. Why should he? Even if he does lose, he still has some good fights left in him.

    No, he can do what he wants but IMO he should retire of a win.
    If he defeats Weidman, it would be a pretty cool way to end his career, or win the Silva vs Belfort 2 fight.

    No, it would be very VERY fun to watch Silva fight lower ranked guys.
