"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."

-Anderson Silva talks to SporTV about his fighting future once he returns from injury (translated by BloodyElbow.com).

Penick's Analysis: Who honestly knows what Silva's going to do on the fighting front when he does come back. It seems a certainty that he'll fight at least once more, because he's well on his way to fighting shape already, and doesn't want his career to end on that freak leg break. Beyond that, it really depends on how he performs, and whether he gets back into the rhythm of being "The Spider." He got taken down to Earth against Chris Weidman last year; can he gain back some of his mystique? Maybe, maybe not, but his first fight back might set the stage for what his next run is. He might come back for one or two fights and then decide to retire, he might go on a resurgent run and find his way back to the top of the heap and stay there for a couple more years. He might just tread water until he no longer feels like fighting. Every option is on the table right now, and until he officially walks away and remains out of the cage for good, expect to see him continue fighting every five to eight months again once he returns.
