In 1997, Anderson Silva began his professional combat career in the Brazilian welterweight competition, winning back-to-back twice and then losing to Luis Azeretto for the first time in 2000. However, he quickly rebounded with a nine-game winning streak, including August 26, 2001, in Japan, against the then-undefeated Shooto champion Hayato Sakurai, which made him the new Shooto middleweight champion. He started his proud fighting championship with three victories in 2002-03, but then lost the failed Daiju Takase at Pride 26, after which he even considered withdrawing from MMA.
In Cage Rage 16, in April 2006, after his highly anticipated match with Matt Lindland was canceled, he countered Tony Fryklund and defended his title. Later that month, he signed a multi-war contract with UFC and made his debut on June 28, 2006, on the Ultimate Fight Night, winning Chris Leben through KO. In the UFC 97 competition in April 2009, Anderson Silva defeated Taylors Lites nine times in a row to win the UFC record, and his opponent was sentenced to jail for letting him go through five rounds. On August 8, 2009, he again won the KO in the light heavyweight competition of UFC 101 against former champion Forrest Griffin. Anderson Silva Net Worth is gradually increasing by passing the time.
He also lost the rematch with Wademan, who was replaced by one of the “Ultimate Fighters: Brazil 4” coaches due to a failed drug test. His victory against Nick Diaz on January 31, 2015, was declared uncompetitive because he was tested positive for steroids and he was banned for one year. After returning from his PED suspension, he lost his middleweight match against Michael Bespin and his light heavyweight against Daniel Comil. However, he rebounded on February 11, 2017, in a way that defeated Derrick Brunson and plans to face Kelvin Gastelum on UFC Fight Night 122 on November 25, 2017.
