Great to see Silva again. His previous fights were abysmal. Hopefully, he'll get the chance to turn it around this time.

I don't know... He's 41, against a guy with great ground game and wrestling. I'm not saying I won't watch this fight, but I have my doubts about how great it will be :(

It might be Silva's last fight after all. But I'm still looking forward to a great match.

I'm wishing it will be a great fight, but unfortunately I think you are right & Silvas prime time has well passed.

Silva wanted to fight in Brazil in his 20th anniversary as an MMA fighter. I think he still wants to fight after this.

Anderson has never been the same ever post surgery. He's like the male alpha lion that defended his territory for many years until a younger stronger lion came along to challenge him and took his territory and his lionesses. From that day on he would never reclaim what was once his.
