Anderson Silva: ‘Chris is the Champion, I’m Not Fighting for the Championship Anymore’

Anderson Silva was UFC Middleweight Champion for over six years, with the most epic title reign in UFC history before dropping the title to Chris Weidman tonight at UFC 162. In his post-fight interview with Joe Rogan Anderson made a rather interesting announcement, one that might not make a lot of sense in such an ultra-competitive world like the UFC.

According to Anderson Silva, he does not wish for a rematch with Chris Weidman, nor does he wish to challenge for anymore titles. According to Anderson Silva, he is tired. He has done a lot in his career and made a better life for his family, which is what he wished to do. He still claims to have over ten fights left on his contract and that he’ll continue fighting, but that he respects Chris Weidman and that Weidman is the champion now.

Weird, right?
