Silva is my fav fighter.
I don't wanna see him go down same path as lidell did.
You accomplished enough
Have nothing else to prove.
While I agree he has nothing left to prove, I also think he has nothing to lose.
If he comes back he would definitely need a fight or two to get back to a title shot IMO. But if he could come back and win one or two, then beat Weidman or Belfort and regain the belt, it would be an amazing comeback story.
The reason I don't think he has anything to lose is because if he came back and DID lose to someone, everyone with half a brain would understand that it was due to his age, injury, and layoff.
Absolutely nothing could tarnish his legacy at this point IMO.
