If we're to believe UFC President Dana White, Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva wants a new contract from the promotion. But he doesn't want a run-of-the-mill four or five fight deal. He wants 10 -- count 'em -- 10 more fights.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva is currently signed with the promotion for two more fights. He's gone back-and-forth on the subject of retirement, first saying he would be out of the game at 35-years-old, then later claiming he could continue his career for another 10 years.

As of late, it's seemed he's content on taking it one fight at a time. But if we're to believe UFC President Dana White, that's not the case.

That's because he revealed to fans during a live chat with MetroPCS that the UFC approached the reigning pound-for-pound king with a new 8-fight contract offer. And he turned it down.

"Fuck that, I want a 10-fight deal," Silva said. Or at least that's what White said Silva said. Expletive likely added.

Well then now we can get the fight vs GSP, Jones, Weidman, Cain and any one else who thinks they got the stones.

So, in addition to all of his other UFC records, Anderson Silva will be the oldest UFC fighter to win by knockout? I can dig it.

If he can win 10 more fights, I might just have to start a religion idolizing this guy.

At his age though, another 10 fights gives him a great chance to lose.

I'm always in favor of more Anderson fights, but for him 10 fights is ~6 years worth of fighting. He's insane but eventually his age has to effect him.

Andee wants a 10 fight deal, give it to him. Just stipulate he has to fight at least twice in a year.

Whenever Dana talks, I take it with a grain of salt
