Anderson Silva, 45, refusing retirement despite UFC release as icon has 'total belief' he can continue in 'elite of MMA'

ANDERSON SILVA appears to be refusing retirement despite his UFC release as he has 'total belief' he can continue in the 'elite of MMA'.

The middleweight icon was beaten in his farewell UFC fight last month, with Uriah Hall winning in round four.

He was then released from his contract despite having one bout left on his contract.

But the 45-year-old took to Instagram to inform fans that his fighting days may not yet be over.

He wrote: "I love and have always loved what I do, winning and losing are a part of it, it has absolutely nothing to do with age.

"I made technical mistakes and lost, but I didn’t lose what’s most important, the will and the desire to continue doing what I love.

"I still have the warrior spirit and that burning flame in my heart that motivates me.

"I have total belief that I can continue to compete in the elite of MMA.

"I take this moment to reflect about my career and to plan my next moves…

"Stay Tuned!!!"

Silva has now lost eight of his last nine bouts, and UFC president Dana White claimed he made a 'mistake' by letting him face Hall.

White also called on other sanctioning or athletic commissions to prevent the veteran from fighting on.

But Silva hit back by claiming his retirement was being forced as he insisted he is going nowhere.

He said: "I didn’t want to talk about this subject, especially because I’m on vacation and as the saying goes, “a deal is a deal”.

"I’ll make it clear to all my fans that this is a moment of joy and gratitude!!!

"I feel free, after an attempt to force my retirement!"

Despite Silva's call to carry on his career, promoter White blasted that he should 'never fight again' following his stoppage loss to Hall.

He said: “I made a big mistake. I shouldn’t have let him fight this fight.

"But out of respect to him — he’s a legend of this sport, a legend of this company — I did something that I disagreed with.

"I knew I was right and tonight proved I was right and Anderson Silva should never fight again."

Man City star Bernardo Silva's Wag Ines is a stunning model who Netflix and chilled with the midfielder during lockdown

LOCKDOWN was kind to Manchester City star Bernardo Silva.

As the country gears up towards ANOTHER lockdown this week (thankfully the football isn't affected), Silva, 26, will have fond memories of the first.

It was when he cemented his romance with stunning model Ines Degener Tomaz, 22.

The pair snuggled down together in Portugal, when the coronavirus pandemic initially changed our way of living, in a huge countryside home – just an hour away from the capital.

There, they 'Netflix and chilled' with pals until restrictions were lifted.

So who is the beauty that's stole Bernardo's heart?


Gorgeous Tomaz is believed to be from Lisbon, where Silva was also born and raised.

Unsurprisingly, with her natural good looks she's a model and regularly shows off her amazing body in several bikini shots on Instagram.

The confident blonde has also amassed around 54,000 followers on the social media network, who follow her on her travels.

In terms of work, she's a fan of promoting green brands that promote respect and care for the environment.

Most recently, Silva and Tomaz enjoyed a romantic break away in Formentera, one of the Balearic Islands of Spain.

They lived the high-life, hiring a yacht during their lavish holiday as their love blossomed.

But it was earlier this year when things really started hotting up.


Back in April, Silva took to Instagram to share how he was spending his time in quarantine.

He shared a snap sat next to Tomaz with a group of pals telling his fans what he had been doing.

“Hey guys, it’s been over a month that we’re all locked down in our homes so I have decided to show you a little bit of what our quarantine looks like," he wrote.

"This is the group of friends with whom I’m spending my quarantine since the beginning.

❤ @bernardocarvalhosilva

Hey guys, it’s been over a month that we’re all locked down in our homes so I have decided to show you a little bit of what our quarantine looks like. This is the group of friends with whom I’m spending my quarantine since the beginning and tomorrow we’re doing a live here on Instagram at 5pm. We’ll show you our daily routine and I’ll also be answering a few questions after that. See you tomorrow!! Stay tuned, it will be fun 😄

“I’ve been watching Netflix, plenty of sports during the day, playing the piano and learning how to cook better.

"It is a good opportunity. My friends are very good cooks, so they have been teaching me a lot of things. It is time to try and enjoy ourselves at home and that is what I have been trying to do."

With company like Tomaz, it's no doubt he did.

TV and Movies

Darcey and Stacey Silva were unrecognizable before plastic surgery

Darcey and Stacey Silva enjoy being in the spotlight, and frankly, going under the knife! Divorced mother-of-two Darcey is arguably the most famous, and sympathetic, star to emerge from 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days (it’s certainly not Big Ed in the sympathy department). During Seasons 1 and 2, fans cringed as the star failed at love with male model Jesse Meester. 

“Fail” may be an understatement, as the duo clashed over everything from the infamous scuffing of Jesse’s sneakers to how to properly slice a steak. Ever-determined Darcey returned in Season 3 dating an English bloke, Tom Brooks, but things weren’t great between them either, with a post-season split and Tom even claiming later on that he never wanted to be on the show. Yikes.

But one person who has never left Darcey Silva’s side is twin sister Stacey. In 2020, the duo premiered their own TLC spinoff show, Darcey & Stacey, which follows their tight-knit relationship even further. But one thing some fans have noticed, aside from their closeness, is that Darcey and Silva seem to have that, well, plastic surgery look. “How much surgery has Darcey had?”, one Twitter user asked. 

The answer? A bit! Darcey and Stacey have made it clear they’ve gotten some work done in the past. And no shame in doing so; it comes with the territory of fame. But their transformation is definitely… dramatic. Scroll down to see what the Silva sisters looked like before surgery. 

Darcey and Stacey Silva used to look dramatically different

Wow, Darcey and Stacey Silva used to look quite different. The pair — who have been appearing on TV shows for years at this point — have shown a dramatic change in their lips, cheeks, and overall look. And they haven’t exactly kept their cosmetic work a secret; they’re proud of what they’ve gotten done!

Back in 2019, Darcey told Life & Style she was getting a “mommy makeover,” which included a tummy tuck. “We’re both moms,” Stacey added. “Although we do live an active lifestyle, we just wanted to help with the overall areas that the gym wouldn’t help with.”

Meanwhile, the duo opened up to Entertainment Tonight about how they typically get their surgery… together! “Yeah, we got new boobs,” Darcey said in the September 2020 makeup video, adding the sisters typically get surgery “in tandem,” which always gives the doctors “a chuckle.” “When Stacey and I go to do our cosmetic procedures, we really feel excited that we get to do it together” Darcey said, per ScreenRant. Kind of sweet! 

Body procedures aside, Darcey has also recently acknowledged her lip work on Instagram. “My lips are loving the pillow talk and my Hof11 silk Pj’s! So Smooth and Sexy!,” she captioned a July 2020 post, seemingly cleverly referring to the 90 Day Fiancé web show Pillow Talk, her clothing company, and plumping her lips. Ha! Those are just a few times Darcey and Stacey have mentioned their cosmetic work. More power to them!

Darcey Silva and Georgi Rusev: ENGAGED!! Even Though He’s Married!

Time and time again, Darcey Silva’s heart has been broken on television.

But now, despite the setbacks that we’ve seen on Darcey & Stacey, Darcey and Georgi are now engaged!!!

46-year-old Darcey Silva struck out with Jesse Meester. She struck out with Tom Brooks. Some would say that she dodged two bullets.

But it has now been revealed that she and her hunky 32-year-old boyfriend, Georgi Rusev, are now engaged.

What’s more is that she accepted Georgi’s proposal in June. Only now has the news become public.

“I still feel newly engaged,” Darcey gushes to People four months after Georgi popped the question.

She admits: “I haven’t been able to really celebrate it yet with everybody.”

“I want to be able to shout it to the world,” Darcey expresses.

“It was definitely a total surprise for me,” Darcey admits of the proposal.

She notes that “Georgi and I have a very deep connection.”

“And,” Darcey explains, “I feel like in that moment I was not expecting it at all.”

As we already knew, Darcey and Georgi ended up being rushed into moving in together after the COVID-19 pandemic put the world into lockdown.

Georgi is sharing how difficult it was to keep his proposal plans a secret while sharing space with his fiancee-to-be.

“It was really hard to find the ring, make calls, make the reservation for the boat, for dinner,” the needlessly hunky Bulgarian admits.

Georgi of course is a masseuse from Bulgaria whose eye-popping good looks thirst trapped Darcey (and her fans) after her relationship with Tom Brooks ended in disaster.

Darcey and Georgi met in person in Miami, during the Super Bowl weekend. The connection was “instant,” Darcey recalls.

That does not mean that their relationship has been problem-free. We all recently saw her discover that Georgi is still married and going through a divorce on Darcey & Stacey.

Despite that, being with Georgi just feels right.

“It felt like a very comfortable, warm feeling and like that feeling of home,” Darcey describes how Georgi made her feel.

Additionally, she affirms that the hurdles that they have conquered together have only served to make their relationship “stronger.”

“The most important [thing] is we understand each other and we have each other’s backs,” Georgi chimes in.

He adds: “We feel very secure with each other.”

That is good to hear, since sometimes insecurities and uncertainties can demolish relationships from within.

Darcey acknowledges that, when it comes to their issues, “Everybody’s going to have their issues from time to time.”

“But if we can communicate and talk through that,” she emphasizes.

Shading her exes, Darcey adds: “That’s what I’ve always wanted in a relationship.”

Darcey shares that, immediately after giving Georgi the “yes” that he wanted from his proposal, she called up her teenage daughters.

Of Aniko and Aspen, she reminds fans: “They mean the most to me.”

“And,” Darcey adds, “Georgi knows they come first and foremost in my life.”

“He accepts them and me as a mom,” Darcey shares, “and they get along very well.”

“We already kind of feel like a little family unit,” she reveals.

To no one’s surprise, Darcey is already crafting the perfect vision board for her dream wedding.

“I’ve always wanted a partner in life where you can raise each other up and not shoot each other down,” Darcey expresses.

“I decided the next relationship I got in,” she says, “I would say what I want.”

Darcey concludes: “We’re able in the end to work it all out, rise above and stay strong for the love that we know we share because our future is so great.”
