UFC legend Anderson Silva had eight fights left on his UFC contract this included his fight against Nick Diaz in January. Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta had a meeting with Anderson Silva last Thursday in Rio de Janeiro, and they agreed to a new deal.
“I had seven fights on my contract (after the Diaz fight). I met Lorenzo and Dana on Thursday and that contract was canceled. We signed for another 15 fights,” Silva reported to Combate. “To make Dana crazy, I signed for 15 more fights. And to make my family crazy, too.”
Silva is no longer sponsored by Nike but he’s currently in negotiations with Adidas.
“I was always a Nike fan, I like the brand. The company gave me an opportunity to fulfill a dream. Thanks to Ronaldo and Corinthians, I was able to work with Nike,” he said. “It was great, I liked it a lot. I’ll miss them, always remember it.
“We’re in a good relationship with Adidas now. There’s nothing done, we’ll see what happens in the future.”
