A while back UFC President Dana White said they were working on a ten fight deal with Anderson Silva and everyone’s jaws dropped at the number of bouts. Just a few years ago Silva was saying he wanted to retire in one or two fights, and when the media asked White how the deal went down he said “Silva wanted a ten fight deal.” According to a new interview with the pound for pound best fighter on the planet, Silva says there may have been a glitch in the communication chain because it didn’t go down quite like that.

Silva told MMAJunkie

“Maybe there’s a contradiction lost in translation. I wanted to do four more fights, and they said eight, so I said, ‘Whatever. Let’s do eight, 10. Let’s do however many fights you want.’ They got on that ride and offered me 10 fights, and that’s what I signed.”

“It all depends. Ten fights is about six years, so we’ll see what happens in the meantime. I hope that I’m still inspired and that I still have the will power and the desire to go out there and fight. But I’m happy. I’m well-treated by Dana and Lorenzo (Fertitta) and everyone in the UFC, and I hope to continue having this desire to fight and go in there and train. But it’s a matter of time. We have to go in there and see what’s going to happen in the next few years.”
