I beg to differ. Silva has to be considerd a top 10 heavyweight.

Only as much as the UFC was. Eilers was given a UFC title shot against Andrei Arlovski off a fresh loss to Paul Buentello. A title shot off of a loss? Yet alot of fans criticize EliteXC for giving him a shot when he has recently won 10 of his last 11 fights.

It's a bit of a catch 22.
