Anderson Silva: “I am not unbeatable. There are still so many things I would have to do before I could be called a living legend.”

UFC middleweight champion, Anderson Silva talks about his legacy just days after the announcement of his next title defence inside the octagon against Yushin Okami, explaining he’s not unbeatable and not a living legend.

Silva, speaking via Twitcam, said:

“Surely I am not unbeatable. Sometimes, we go through situations that demonstrate it. We train hard to do a good job but at any moment I can lose. What lasts is what we built as a legacy – what we already did will be in history. This thing of ‘unbeatable’ is something too vague.”

“Perhaps I’m the next victim. The next fight [for me] is scheduled with Okami in August and let’s go there, UFC Rio. There are still so many things I would have to do before I could be called a ‘living legend.’”
