Anderson Silva releases statement: “I hope I left it in memory and in the heart of each of you a little of who I am”

Anderson Silva has spoken on his loss to Uriah Hall, and apparent retirement from mixed martial arts.

By Oscar Willis - 1 Nov 2020

Anderson Silva has released a statement regarding his defeat to Uriah Hall and his leaving the UFC.

The future Hall of Famer lost last night in what will be his final appearance in the Octagon, drawing an end to an absolutely sensational career. While Silva apparently remains to be uncertain if he’ll compete in some form or another in the future, the very fact The Spider’s run in the UFC is over is, in itself, a retirement of sorts.

“Good morning, my people, today is a very different day for a simple reason, and I wanted to thank you all these years with your cheerleading!” Silva wrote on his social media. “I want to thank the God for granting me the gift of the fight! Thank you my people for all understanding, for all your support and for all your amazing moments that we live in this sport together! I hope I left it in memory and in the heart of each of you a little of who I am, that you can overcome difficulties, every second of uncertainty and to overcome obstacles in your lives!

“Never think about giving up, as hard as things get at some point; know that ​​I leave all my love, all my respect for you! Force and time always and God bless you all!” Thank you all, bless you, and bless you 🙏🏾❤️🙏🏾
