Since Shogun is going to HW to not face Wand for the title, I think Mirko should go down to face him and settle it once and for all, so there is no excuses that Wand was too big or whatever....In the same regard, we'd be able to see a Shogun-Mirko title fight. That would be sick.
ive never heard of a fighter dropping 1 weight division because he cant beat the champ, the one no1 has ever defeated.. If he was to do that, i, and probably of a lot of other ppl, would simply never give him respect as a MW champ.
Also, there would be no challenge for mirko... mirko doesnt feel challenged by silva at all, he crushed him easy, and besides silva, shogun and liddell arent more of a challenge either.. he has a better reach, better striking, and probably more powerful strikes.. id like to see those big flurrys to even touch his head..
U dont see nogueira crying over 3 losses to fedor, hes just going to keep trying..before the barnett fight, he was undefeated against any1 but fedor... and mirko has lost a few fights, so its not like fedor is his only goal..
