Wand: This is the fight of my life
“This is the fight of my life,” Silva proclaimed on Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour. “I’ve waited all my career for this fight. I’ve waited for (14) years for this fight. He is one of the guys I really, really want to fight before I (retire). This fight is the fight of my dreams.”
These days retirement seems to come up more often than not for Silva. Luckily, by now he seems to have acknowledged that fact, or at least grow accustomed to it, and so he has very few reservations about taking a trip down memory lane.
“I’m so happy for my career,” Silva reflectively said.
“I’ve been fighting since I was 13 years old. I’ve fought for 21 years of my life. But I still feel really good. I feel really motivated.”
