“I have three and then it’therefore completed.
If Silva adheres by the last three spells of his contract has been the last three spells of his career, they could largely be mapped out to him, especially if he beats Adesanya.
UFC president Dana White promised Silva a middle weight title shot should he overcome Adesanya. So if he wins Feb. 9, his next likely fight is a name fight the winner of this UFC 2 3 4 primary event between 185-pound champion Robert Whittaker along with challenger Kelvin Gastelum.
After that and give his druthers, Silva does have a scenario in mind regarding how he would enjoy his career to end down.
There’s always been a superfight between Silva and Georges StPierre simmering just below the top of Octagon, however it’s never come to boil. Now that St-Pierre has just fought in the past five decades and might never fight , Silva has still yet another superfight in mind in his or her ldquo;perfect universe ” scenario.
“At his point in my own career, I think that the good challenge may be that the superfight,” Silva said. “I speak with Dana roughly Georges st pierre, roughly (Conor) McGregor, roughly McGregor particularly because McGregor is just a battle, this fight. I only speak with Dana alot about the fight that’s very intriguing. ”
If it were around him, that is just how Silva’s final three would play out: conquer Adesanya, fight for the name, then fight McGregor, since st pierre appears to have little attention .
“(Conor) is a remarkable fighter and also a legend in this game and let’s visit watch. ”
Needless to say, if Silva defeats Adesanya and then wins the belt, then he would likely be required to defend it until stepping away or confronting famous brands McGregor at a catchweight fight, which is likely the place where a bout with the Irishman might need to be contested if it ever became a reality.
First, however, Silva will really need to get past Adesanya, who many are likening into the newer, smaller version of the 43-year-old former champion. Both will square off as a member of the UFC 2 3 4: Whittaker vs. Gastelum undercard, and then Silva will see at which the last fights of his career unfold from that point.
