Anderson (The Spider) Silva has nothing left to prove.

Arguably the greatest fighter in MMA history, Silva has remains unbeaten since joining the UFC roster seven years ago, going a perfect 16-0 inside the octagon. He has also set the record for most title defences, at 10.

During a UFC media conference call Tuesday, Silva said he has cemented his legacy.

"Whatever I should have already done in this sport, I've done," Silva said through translator Derek Lee. "Win or lose, I've already done everything there is to do. Now, it's just a matter of doing what I love to do.

"Every new fight is a new challenge. It's really going to be up to who is better prepared, whoever feels better that night. A loss and a win are always walking side by side, so that doesn't really matter. I've been doing this since I was eight years old. There are always new challenges. My biggest concern is going out there and doing better for myself."
