Anderson Silva signs 10-fight UFC contract


37-year-old UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva's future had been in question lately due to the fact that he only had two fights remaining on his deal, and had been branching out into movies and talked of taking some time off.

10 fights are you serious? DW you are such a money grubbing Jerk! You know that there is no way that battle hardened Silva's body, at 38, can last another 5 fights let alone 10. So he has to fight another 12 times before his contract is up?At two fights a year, he will be 44 by the end of his contract.I mean seriously?Why can't you offer this guy an Office Job or an Executive position for a UFC in Brazil?It seems to me WWE DW is taking advantage of Silva. JDS just got $400k, while Silva continues to get only $200 when he wins. He has the best record in UFC history he should be getting $500k.

actually, between his fight with Yushin Okami and the second fight with Chael Sonnen, there was an 11 month delay. Between his fights with Forrest and Maia there was a 10 month delay. People who claim he fights once a year are almost justified. Almost.
