UFC Quick Quote: Wanderlei Silva has no date set for his retirement

"I don't have a date (for retirement) in my mind. I think my performance is going to make me fight again. What happened (against Leben) can happen to anybody. You can't tell Cain Velasquez he has to retire now because he got knocked out (by Junior dos Santos). Anyone can get knocked out early; one punch early finishes the fight."

-- Six losses in eight fights, including four brutal knockouts, does not equal calling it a career. That's what Wanderlei Silva is saying (via Sherdog) in advance of his middleweight showdown against former Strikeforce champion Cung Le at UFC 139: "Shogun vs. Henderson" tomorrow night (Sat., Nov. 19, 2011) in San Jose. "Wandy" used to be a "Murderer" in Pride, devouring the competition and building a reputation as one of the most ruthless artists of violence the MMA world has ever seen. Since making his way to the UFC, though, Silva just isn't swinging the "Axe" quite the same anymore. In fact, promotion President Dana White is ready to sit down and have the talk with the Brazilian if he ends up on the business end of another knockout. Anyone think Silva will be effectively retired from MMA come Nov. 20?
