Mariano Rivera…The Matrix…UFC 168

Things that have led to the phrase “Not like this.”

Mo collapsed at the hands of a sniper bullet that was a BP fly ball in Kansas City, Switch had it flipped on her and last night, a grotesque leg injury that may have ended the brilliant career of a man who is universally considered the greatest mixed martial artist the world has ever known, Anderson Silva.

With the Sandman, we were blessed with a comeback that resulted in a year-long thank you tour that witnessed one final dominant campaign, an All-Star MVP and perhaps the most emotional on-field goodbye in sports history.

But with Silva, there will likely be no sunset, no final bow to every corner of the octagon, just the nauseating image of his left leg wrapped around Chris Weidman’s. Not the memory anyone would want for the Spider, but for former champion who’d defended his belt for seven years, it very well end just that way.

Silva had hinted at retirement well before this catastrophic injury, but now after an emergency surgery, at least a year’s worth of recovery and rehabilitation and a 40th birthday on the horizon, will we ever see him fight again?

Former B&Cer Glenn DuPaul initially referenced The Matrix shortly after Rivera did his knee, but the most elite closer of all-time eventually got the farewell he deserved. A day later, all that’s left is the hope that one day we can say the same for Anderson Silva.
