Rumor: Anderson Silva to Retire from MMA to Pursue Quilting

In the grand tradition of superstar Michael Jordan leaving basketball to pursue a career in baseball and boxing great Mike Tyson leaving the ring to pursue a career in jail comes a rumor that untouchable UFC champ Anderson Silva might be contemplating a jump to the world of competitive quilting. Quilting is a sewing method where, using a needle and thread or a sewing machine, two or more layers of fabric are joined together - often to create intricate patterns. In competitive quilting, all sewing is done by hand. "Anderson will honor the fights left on his UFC contract," says manager Ed Soares. "He's been a great champion in mixed martial arts. But it's time the quilting world learns just how talented Anderson really is."
