Anderson Silva Wants To Compete In MMA Until He’s 43 Years Old

UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva is currently 37 years old. Silva, however, feels like a young fighter just entering his prime, as he told the Brazilian newspaper Estadao recently.

“I guess you can see more like six years of fighting (left),” Silva said. “I love what I do. The team that works with me does a fantastic job.”

Silva is a perfect 15-0 inside the Octagon, and is currently among the top pound-for-pound fighters in the world. He does not have a scheduled opponent to date, but rumors of a super-fight with Georges St-Pierre have picked up steam.

“I’ve never had a serious injury that took myself away from competition,” Silva said. “So, I think I have this a little while longer.”
