Silva's time in the cage was quite literally a performance. He readily admitted after the bout that he took the fight only to save the event and, in his own words, "put on a show for everybody."

As Silva's career comes to an end, he is undergoing a metamorphosis. We've seen Silva the fighter, Silva the martial artist, Silva the champion ... on Saturday night, he was an entertainer. The reason is clear. At 37 years of age, he is keen to retire and evolve from an athlete into something new.
