Not really a write off by Silva, but it only seems likely to write off Bisping. His strength is his stand up, where he has little to no power. Yeah, Mikey would die in the cage against with Silva. However, if he wins, he should get the next shot. Then..., it should be Belcher. He's an established top 185'er. To anybody saying Whiney is the number 1 contender, you're an idiot. Whiney is at least 2 fights from a shot. Hell, beating an injured Munoz and a WW who wasn't a contender at 185 hardly warrants a top 5 spot.
Well, I don't think defeating Palhares and Cote puts Belcher ahead of Weidman.
