Wanderlei Silva refuses to retire after knockout loss to Chris Leben (Video)

"A lot of guys say, 'Oh you should retire' but I can't retire now, not after that fight. I'm coming back to fight, for sure, and I hope I give a good show for my fans. I will talk to [Dana White] soon but for sure this is not the last fight. After my career, I can't have one last fight like that. I want to be able to announce when I am going to retire and then have a big party for my fans!"

If UFC middleweight Wanderlei Silva is getting another fight, you can bet it's likely to be at the promotion's return trip to Japan in Feb. 2012, where the "Axe Murderer" defined his career. How about it Maniacs, if you get to play matchmaker for a day, who's next in line for this legendary brawler?
