LAS VEGAS – Anderson Silva’s final UFC game will officially take place on Saturday, as both he and his rival Uriah Hall weighed in on Friday’s official weighing.
Silva (34-10) hit 184 pounds in the main match in mid-range against Hall (15-9).
Silva, 45, has been wondering if Saturday’s game was his last, but he admits this may be the last time he has fought. UFC President Dana White has advertised the match as Silva’s last trip to Octagon.
Silva is considered one of the greatest martial artists in the history of mixed martial arts. He made his UFC debut in 2006 and won his first 16 games. He held the 185 pound weight class title from 2006 to 2013 and is considered by many to be the best British boxer in the world during that time.
The UFC actually booked this game against Hall – who weighs 184 pounds – years ago in Brazil, but Silva was forced to retreat due to health problems. Hall has won three of the last four matches. His only loss came to recent title challenger Paulo Costa in 2018.
Saturday’s UFC event lost a bantamweight match between Priscila Cachoeira and Cortney Casey. The UFC announced on Friday that the 135-pound match was canceled after Cachoeira was forced to withdraw the card due to “weight management problems.” Neither Cachoeira nor Casey considered on Friday.
