Anderson Silva hasn’t inked a new UFC deal, but the process is in motion.
“The renovation is headed,” said Silva to TATAME. “We have more time to decide that. Let’s see how it goes.”
The UFC has made it clear that Silva will be resigning and it’s only a matter of time.
Silva returns to the Octagon for the first time this year against Chris Weidman. “The Spider” looks for his 17th consecutive UFC win and 11th title defense in the fight. UFC president Dana White has called Silva the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world.
The middleweight championship headlines UFC 162 on July 6. Silva vs. Weidman comes from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV.
