THE END OF THE ANDERSON SILVA ERA?

It's sad to see one of the greatest UFC fighters of all-time fall on his sword by being defeated by Uriah Hall a journeyman fighter whose 16-9 record is not that impressive. Tonight the UFC legend Anderson Silva was TKO'd at 1 minute and 24 seconds of the fourth round by Hall.

In the end Silva had a hard time leaving the ring. His kneeling actions were interpreted as respect to his challengers and a tribute to his UFC career. The big questions are was is this Silva's final time in the ring and does he have a plan for his end of career future?

At the age of 45½ and having won one fight since 2013 the opinions of those in the business think he should hang it up and UFC president Dana White is the most vocal on the topic.

"I made a big mistake," White said. "I shouldn't have let him fight this fight tonight. But out of respect for him -- he's a legend of this sport, a legend of this company -- I did something I didn't agree with. ... Anderson Silva should never fight again."

There is no question that Silva was one of the most exciting and talented fighters in e UFC history, the problem is his career has been on a decline since 2013 by winning only 1 fight and suffering seven losses as well as one no decision to Nate Diaz in 2015.

There is no question that Silva is entertaining with his bobbing and weaving in and out style while making faces at his opponent. When Chris Weidman took his title by KO-ing him in the 2nd round on punches in July 6, 2013 he lost his title and the grin on his face.

His show boating style loss, ended his streak of 16 wins, the longest title reign in UFC history. That streak started June 28, 2006 against Chris Leben who he KO'd with a knee. After that win Silva's record was 18-4. When his undefeated streak ended against Weidman it left him with a 33-5 record.

In their rematch six months later Weidman won again when Sivla had a severe leg injury when it broke and snapped. It was a gruesome site as it was clear on television when Silva's grimaced in pain as he fell to the canvas.

Since Silva now has 7 losses in his last 8 fights should retire. The problem seems to be that Silva's love to fight and his ego fails to permit him to realize that he isn't the Silva of old who was dominate.

The Brazilian is now making mental mistakes and leaving himself open to punishment. It's sad to see a bloodied and battered Silva apparently looking for pity and support to continue his career. It's sad to see a once proud man be the shadow of his former self.

As for Siva he says he has to think about retiring. He has one fight remaining on his UFC contract but White wants him to forego the remaining fight and stop fighting. "I'll never let him fight here again," White said. "I want him to retire.

With a now 34-11 record should the Bellatore Promotions ask Silva continue his career with them would he accept? Stay tuned…
