Former longtime UFC Middleweight champion, Anderson Silva, apparently wants to become an LAPD officer. In a recent interview with Folha de Sao Paulo, Silva discussed his plans to become an officer (Courtesy of MMAFighting):
I train every morning, take my kids to school and go to the police school. I’m studying at the Los Angeles School Police Department. I’m studying to become a police officer.
It’s a personal wish, something that will make my uncle happy. He thought it was a little weird that I’m not doing this here (in Brazil), but it wasn’t the right time. My brothers are police officers, my nephews are police officers. It’s a family thing.
It will be interesting to see if Silva chooses to become an officer after he hangs up his gloves once and for all. For now, Silva has assured his legion of fans that he will return to the Octagon once he is fully healed sometime in 2015.
