Default How many fights does Anderson have left?

1) Before he's physically not Anderson Silva any more?

2) Do you think he has left in the UFC full stop? One more fight? Two? Three? Five?

How many fights do you think he has left, and who should they be against?

I would like to see him have two to three fights. No more than that.

First Chael, then if he wins that, Hendo. If Henderson beats him, then they have a rubber match and he retires win or lose.

Discuss.

Could be his next fight, you never know with the guys who rely a lot on their speed and reactions for success

I don't really have an answer

Honestly? I have no idea. I'm still stunned he has his reflexes and speed at his age. It's inhuman.

1) 1-2 years.

2) He was getting touched with half of those jabs thrown by Okami.. I know he rolls with them, but they were landing.. And Sonnen put him on his seat with a punch also.

After the Sonnen rematch, win or lose, we will slowly see him break down. Unless he ends this one on the first clean strike landed, AS will be in for another tough fight.

If he beats Sonnen again, I'd like to see him make one more defense of the title (Munoz, ???) and 2 superfights.. Whether that be against GSP or the champ at LHW.

That's a big call. Why only one more fight? Is it about going out on top?

I think it might be a reference to Anderson going out with Chael on top. On top of Anderson for five rounds, that is.

Max 3. he's very close to the top in terms of his ATG legacy status, so he has to make these next 3 count. Sonnen, a fight a lightheavy, perhaps with Evans or Hendo and then Jones.

No interest in GSP I don't think GSP would beat Sonnen, never mind Anderson, and I'm a huge GSP fan.

If he was to beat Sonnen then thats really it.

Nothing left for him, maybe Jon Jones at a push.

The GSP fight seems unrealistic.

1) Don't know, don't care

2)To my knowledge, as long he is the UFC champ he is bound by contract to defend the title !

He is 36...maybe he is gonna retire at 38, maybe 40... Couture retired at 48

Damn who knows...
