One time when "The Spider" used the language, however, came when the talk of retirement came up. At 37 years old, Silva is obviously approaching the twilight of his career.
Still, it didn't waste much time when responding, "Nope," when asked if the Saturday night bout with Chael Sonnen could be his retirement fight.
UFC president Dana White remarked on the incredible run that Silva has put together. Since winning the UFC middleweight title in 2006 over Rich Franklin, Silva has won all 12 of his fights inside the Octagon.
"He's (37 years old) performing at this level, and that's a feat in itself," White said. "I do believe he is the best ever."
