It seems Anderson SIlva’s desire to continue fighting won’t be granted by the big-boys leagues.
Following the release from UFC, Bellator MMA’s President Scott Coker wasn’t interested in singing “The Spider”.
Now, kickboxing legend and president of Professional Fighting League Ray Sefo is also joining the list of people who don’t have a spot in their stable for once the best fighter in the world.
“Listen, I mean that guy is such a legend in the sport but isn’t he around 46?” PFL president Ray Sefco told Fight Sports. “The guy is such an amazing talent. I think he has been a great champion. He’s definitely gonna go down in history as one of the best to ever do it. Nothing but a lot of respect but I just think it’s that time to hang it up.
“Watching his last fight, he also fought a former teammate of mine, and Uriah Hall was able to finish that fight. Anderson Silva is a legend and he’s gonna go down in history as one of the best to do it, so I’d like to remember him as that guy.”
Silva, 45, lost 7 of his last 9 fights in UFC before Dana White escorted him out of the building.
