so why is there so much talk about silva fighting the much smaller gsp instead of fighting someone his own size like shogun? seems to me that silva pretended to be bored w/ the ufc but didn't rise to the challenge of moving up to fight shogun. it seems like silva is attempting to trick people into thinking he's the best without taking the risky challenge of fighting shogun, which in reality would be the only way silva could ever claim that best status.
Even though he's fought at lhw 2 times that doesnt make him a lhw fighter and you thinking he should move up to 205 and fight the best there is ridiculous, he's a mw fighter and he is the best in mw.
