In a dramatic turn of events, Chris Weidman has silenced retirement rumors following his hard-fought win against Bruno Silva at UFC on ESPN 54. The former UFC middleweight champion, who had been contemplating hanging up his gloves, delivered a resounding message: “I still think I have it. So, until I don’t think I have it anymore, I’m here.”

Weidman’s clash with Silva was nothing short of intense. The fight took place at Boardwalk Hall during the main card of UFC on ESPN 54. Despite some controversy surrounding the result, Weidman emerged victorious via unanimous decision. His performance not only secured the win but also reaffirmed his belief in his abilities.

Chris Weidman the ageless warrior

At 39 years old, Chris Weidman acknowledges that he’s no spring chicken in the sport. However, his unwavering confidence and determination defy age. He stated during the post-fight press conference: “I still think I have a lot of potential, and I’ve had a lot of adversity and I still think I have it.” His passion for MMA remains undiminished, fueled by the thrill of competition and the desire to prove himself.

Retirement Considerations

Weidman candidly admitted that retirement had crossed his mind. Had he lost to Silva, it might have signaled the end of his storied career. But fate had other plans. With the win secured and a two-fight losing streak snapped, Weidman’s resolve remains unshaken. “I’ve considered it plenty of times,” he revealed. “If I was in there and I was just, ‘I don’t have it anymore,’ I may have put the gloves down, but it didn’t happen, and I got the win, so here I am.”

As Weidman looks to the future, retirement is off the table—for now. His eyes are set on new challenges, potential opponents, and the pursuit of greatness. “This is too much fun,” he declared. “I think I was meant to do this.” Whether he faces rising stars or seasoned veterans, one thing is certain: Chris Weidman isn’t ready to ride off into the sunset just yet.
