Anderson Silva laid it on the line Monday during an appearance on “The MMA Hour.”
Give him a fight at UFC 212 vs. Yoel Romero for the interim middleweight title, or “The Spider” will hang up the gloves for good.
“I’m tired,” Silva said. “Trust me, I’m so tired. I just talked to my team today, and I talked to my friends and my family. I’m tired. If nothing happens, if this fight doesn’t happen anymore in Brazil, I’m done. I won’t fight more. I’m done.”
Silva (34-8) was scheduled to meet Kelvin Gastelum at the June card in Brazil, but Gastelum was removed due to a failed drug test. The proud Brazilian and former UFC middleweight champion is 17-4 overall inside the Octagon, but just 1-4 over his last five fights.
