After every event, fans wonder whom the losing fighters will be matched up with next.
With another night of UFC action in the rearview mirror, it’s time to look forward, put on a pair of Sean Shelby and Mick Maynard’s shoes, and play UFC matchmaker for UFC 234’s most notable losing fighter.
That, of course, would be former longtime UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva (34-9 MMA, 17-5 UFC), who suffered a unanimous decision loss to Israel Adesanya (16-0 MMA, 5-0 UFC) in a key matchup of contenders.
The contest marked a return to the octagon from a two-year layoff for “The Spider,” and with no plans to retire, the 43-year-old has options for his next fight.
Watch the video above to see a rundown of those options and what would be next for the Brazilian legend.
