Despite USADA troubles, Anderson Silva promises, his fighting career is not over yet.
Past few years haven’t been the best for former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva, who is currently under the USADA investigation for failing an out-of-competition drug test when he was scheduled to take on Kelvin Gastelum in the main event of UFC Fight Night 122 this past November. He could end up on the shelf with a lengthy suspension as a result.
Despite all the troubles, Silva assures his passion for fighting is to continue, and that his career is “not over yet.” Silva got back in the win column in 2017 when he scored a decision win over Derek Brunson at UFC 208, but before that, “The Spider” had lost four of his last five outings.
Silva took to social media and confirming that his fighting career is not over.
“When I look at this photo, I realize how much God strengthens me by always giving me light in my walk,” Anderson Silva said in his post. “On a long trip, fantastic memories of the time I played in the streets of the neighborhood where I grew up in Curitiba. Everything I’ve been through, everything I’ve built with willpower, determination and great honor. I had the privilege of putting the coat of my heart team, in a way, to give a world title to him and especially to my people. I just have to thank you all for everything, I say from my heart, I love you all who are always giving me strength. Kiss! I really love you, strength and honor to all, regardless of team, color, race, religion and sexual choice, we are all brothers. Thank you, my people! You can be sure it’s not over yet. My love and my passion for the fight are here, firm and strong. The fight continues, I will stop when GOD thinks I can not do it anymore. So who is my fan, can be sure, that soon I’m back, to the joy of those who cheer for me and to the sadness of those who don’t.”
