Will Anderson Silva fight again? Chael Sonnen gives his opinion 

Silva’s former rival Chael Sonnen was asked if he thinks ‘The Spider’ would fight again. He said, “No, I don’t think we’ll see him fight again because I think those promotions are telling the truth. And I think there’s a much better way of going about it than the way that he went about it. I don’t think you should come out and just offer your services somewhere. I think that you should have a finished product. He should have found a very specific opponent, taken it to the audience first, to make sure the audience wanted it, then added some flames to it, and then dropped it”

Since being released from the UFC, the likes of Bellator, PFL, and BKFC have said that they were not interested in signing Silva. With one major promotion after another closing its doors, the prospect of ‘The Spider’ fighting again looks slim.
