It wasn’t all that long ago that Anderson Silva was the biggest name in MMA. As the UFC’s all-conquering middleweight champion, “The Spider” demolished almost everyone in his path, and even jumped up to light heavyweight and added to his highlight reel at 205 pounds.
But now, after losing his title and picking up just one win in the last seven years, Silva has just two fights remaining on his UFC contract, and UFC president Dana White admitted he’s unsure how to book the Brazilian legend for his final two fights.
On this week’s episode of The Brit Pack, Simon Head and Chamatkar Sandhu mull over the possible (and highly unlikely) options for Silva’s final two fights, and also discuss what might happen if Silva’s compatriot, UFC women’s “champ champ” Amanda Nunes, decided to hang up her four-ounce gloves in the near future.
The two Brits also take a look back at UFC on ESPN 10 (aka #UFCVegas2) as Cynthia Calvillo announced her arrival as a top contender in her new weight class, while a host of up-and-coming prospects delivered a fistful of spectacular performances to kick off the card.
Enjoy the show, then enjoy the fights!
