I spent an impressive amount of time last night watching and rewatching old UFC fights - particularly Anderson Silva's dismantling of Rich Franklin (marking the decline of my interest in UFC) and the famed Steffan Bonnar - Forrest Griffin duel that put UFC on the mainstream map.

I find myself with this weird and uncomfortable feeling that he's going to be one of those guys who doesn't realize it's over, and winds up doing freakshow missed-weight-has-been fights against like Tito Ortiz, Rampage Jackson...or (god forbid) Chuck Liddell. Or "The Trilogy is ON!!!!!!" where they wheel out Chael Sonnen for a Bellator comeback. I really, really hope not.

The fight Silva really wants is a boxing match with his idol, Roy Jones, Jr. Now that would be a freakshow.

Although Silva have had some good fights, he has only recorded one win in eight years.

I would rather see him do these freakshow matches than try to compete with the top talent in the division. Father Time catches up with us all.

I'd rather him retire gracefully to a life on a beach outside Curatiba somewhere

I used to consider Spider a arrogant jerk the way he danced around and stunted on his opponents. Then I realized just how cool he is through interviews. Then Jon Jones came along and I realized just how a real jerk does it. Cant stand that dude.

This is getting a little embarrassing for Anderson now.

Bellator, PFL and One all passing on him in a matter of days, despite signing others of similar vintage.

It's kinda sad. He's gonna be fighting Don Frye bareknuckle in Japan at this rate.

Meanwhile, I have a raging boner for the post Khabib LW division at the moment. I get that it's a logjam for a silver medal, but Ferguson v Oliviera, Conor v Poirier, plus a wound licking Gaetje and an unproven Chandler both waiting in the wings mean that there are a lot of great fights right there.

And the bare knuckle boys just turned him down too. This is sad.
