Dana White says Wanderlei Silva not retired, 'but he's getting close'   [View Full Version]
Card » Posted 2/5/09 4:33:00PM

Dana White did say though that Wanderlei Silva will have "the talk" about retirement.

"Wanderlei is a guy, yeah, I want to talk to," said White. "He looked good in that fight. He almost won, and it's not like he got knocked out. And Rich Franklin can crack. He just knocked Chuck out."

"I think Wanderlei is coming to the end. I think he knows that too. There's nothing wrong with that. We all get old, and this is a young man's game. We'll see what happens.

"I'm not saying he needs to retire, but he's getting close."

Wandy's face is starting to look like the early stages of roast beef being tenderized. I love watching him fight, but I just don't know how much more punishment he can take.

I think he should call it quits, even though I'm a fan of his.

Yes, Liddell definitely lost his chin at the end of his career, but I think DW was simply giving W. Silva respect by saying Franklin is not an easy opponent. It is obvious W. Silva is near retirement and sometimes one's pride get in the way of what is best. It appeared to me as though DW was simply trying not to hurt Silva's pride while saying he thinks it is time for Silva to retire.

he's not retired until Chael P Sonnen gives him the keys to the retirement home, also known as Chael's fists.
