Anderson Silva: 'I don't know if I will be in the mood for eight more fights'


The "Spider" said that he is motivated to do again what he loves but doesn't know if he will do all the fights left in his contract.

Anderson Silva still has eight fights in his contract with the UFC but there is no guarantee that he will compete that number of times before his retirement. The former UFC middleweight champion told Sportv that he is motivated to go on with his career after the complete healing of his leg but isn't sure how long he will keep fighting.

I have eight fights to do yet in my contract. I want to do all these fights but I don't know that I will be in the mood to do this. For now, I'm very excited, I'm going through a renovation phase. It's going to be nice for me do what I love when I be back to fighting.

The "Spider"  last fought in December, 2013 when he lost to Chris Weidman, at the main event of UFC 168. Anderson's leg snapped in the second round when Weidman checked one of his kicks. He has stated that he probably will fight again in first semester of 2015.
