One of the greatest fighters in the history of mixed martial arts 44-year-old Anderson Silva spoke about what motivates him to continue his professional career: “I never thought about the fact that I need to achieve a title fight. No, this is part of my career, which I have already passed. But I continue to fight. I do not know, maybe I will have a new opportunity to fight for the belt. Life will show.”
In the main event of the UFC 234 tournament in Melbourne, Australia, the undefeated 29-year-old middleweight Israel Adesanya defeated the legendary 43-year-old ex-champ Anderson Silva by unanimous decision.
