If it was up to me? One more fight with either GSP or Jones. He'll likely beat GSP and will probably lose to Jones (although I give Silva a decent chance at scoring an upset).

If Jones beats him? Don't care. I'm Silva's biggest fan and even I want to see him take a very dangerous fight. No shame in losing to a bigger guy who might be on his way to becoming the GOAT. Fedor lost 3 straight, got KOed by a smaller guy yet majority of fans still think the Russian is the best ever. What's ONE loss going to do to Silva's legacy? Nothing. Besides, he can probably negate that loss by moving on to beat Hendo, Evans, and maybe Rua or GSP.

He's in a loose/loose situation though. He wins then retires, he's ducking the next guy to come along, and if he looses he was never any good in the first place

Gotta love these combat sports ''fans''...right
Wouldn't argue if he did choose to retire.

But he is still on top of his game, and I think he can easily defend his title a couple more times vs decent contenders to make some more $$ and entertain the fans a little more.

PS: I don't agree with these potential 'superfights'. Silva would probably brutalize GSP and would probably get badly beaten by Jones. Imo the chances of an upset or even a balanced fight would be minimal in both matches.

a sublime talent like Silva NEEDS to be in with guys like Jones. Fedor did it with Nog and Cro Cop
