UFC Quick Quote: Someone, somewhere will beat Anderson Silva

"Sometime, someone will beat me, that’s a fact. Someone will end up catching my arm, my foot and submitting me - this will happen, that’s for sure. If I retire before it happens, that’s fine. But I want all the people to know that I am prepared for anything. I am training hard not to get hurt, but somebody will beat me. Is there anyone better than me? For sure, but we don’t know where he is."

-- UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva talks to Fighters Only magazine about his vincibility, saying that his time will eventually come if he continues to compete against the best in the world. "The Spider" is currently undefeated (10-0) inside the Octagon and holds the all-time record for the most consecutive wins under the UFC banner. He has not lost a bout decisively in nearly five years -- a flying heel hook submission courtesy if Ryo Chonan at Pride: "Shockwave" in late 2004 (Yushin Okami scored a win over Silva via disqualification in 2006). The Brazilian has mentioned numerous times that he intends to retire from mixed martial arts in the near future. And why not? He's essentially cleaned out the middleweight division and has handled 205-pound fighters with ease when called upon. Pretty soon, if he keeps on doing what he has been doing, there won't be very many competitive options remaining. So can someone like Vitor Belfort at UFC 108 be the right man for the job or will Silva continue to roll in 2010 and beyond?
