Video: Should former UFC champ Anderson Silva retire? MMA notables weigh in


Should former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva call it quits? We asked a few MMA notables to discuss the MMA legend’s potential retirement.

Silva, the UFC’s long-reigning 185-pound titleholder, suffered a pair of losses to Chris Weidman in 2013, and he’s currently on the mend after breaking his leg in an unsuccessful bid to reclaim his title at UFC 168 in December.

Although UFC President Dana White said Silva will return to the cage (“no doubt about it,” he said), is it the best move for the 38-year-old Brazilian?

Some fighters and a veteran MMA manager weigh in above.
