Former UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva’s UFC future is very much up in the air right now, but “The Spider” seems to have a plan once his fighting career is officially over.

Silva has began studying to become a police officer in Los Angeles, California, where he currently resides. The former champion has been out of action since this past December, where he broke his leg in attempt to regain his UFC title from Chris Weidman. Silva is not taking this task lightly, as he explained that his day consists of his children, training, and studying to be a police officer. “I train every morning, take my kids to school and go to the police school,” Silva told Folha de Sao Paulo (Translated by MMAFighting.com).

Being a police officer is something that Silva is very familiar with. Many of Silva’s uncles, brothers, and nephews have joined the police force in Brazil. Silva made an attempt to become a police officer in Brazil, but failed to complete the course. According to the fighter, things will be different this time around. “I’ve tried to study in Brazil, but I gave up and my uncle didn’t talk to me for a month. Silva admitted. “This time I will go through with it.”

While it seems that Silva’s aspirations to become a police officer are rooted in his desire to follow his family lineage, it’s hard not to see the writing on the wall. Silva knows that his career is coming to an end and is planning for the next phase in his life. The pound for pound great may return to the Octagon, but if he does, it will likely be short lived.

The career choice itself is perfect. Silva is one of the most dangerous people in the world. I don’t see many crooks putting up a fight against one of the greatest fighters in the history of mixed martial arts.

Daniel Reveles
Born and raised in Santa Barbara, California, Daniel Reveles' interest in Mixed Martial Arts began at the age of fourteen while attending a Fantasy Football draft at a Friend's house. That day Daniel's buddies ordered UFC 88 on Pay-Per-View featuring lauded striker and hometown hero Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell squaring off with Division One Wrestler “Suga” Rashad Evans. After seeing “the wrestler” Rashad Evans put the Ice Man out cold with an overhand right, Daniel became instantly hooked by the unpredictability of the sport. Since that moment Daniel has become well versed in Mixed Martial Arts History and has yet to miss an event. Daniel is currently studying at the University of California Santa Barbara to receive his Bachelor's Degree in Communications with hopes of becoming the next big media mogul. When he is not watching MMA or studying you can find Daniel hanging out with his family and friends or taking in a game at the lovely Dodger Stadium.
