MMA SmacktalkMMA Smacktalk is for all the cheering, jeering, and smack-talking that you want. This is the stuff that isn't appropriate for the MMA Discussion forum. Rules are light, so if you don't have a sense of humor, then don't go here!
I know this is kinda silly...but believable at the same time... Silva wants to fight as much as possible this year.. If i was as talanted as him i'd be fighting for the LHW title from whoever owns it... Then drop down to 170 and fight the champ there for the belt... I actually believe that he's good enough to do this... Would Dana let a fighter hold 3 belts, especially as he's talkin retirement already?
he wouldn't have a chance at beating a heavyweight.. Them guys have 50lbs on him. He'd get taken down by lesnar and gnp'ded....
I believe if he lost some muscle and worked on cardio more he could make 170, but you guys have a good point... He might be really weak at the time of fighting.. Does he have any trouble making weight for 185?
If only there was some weight between welterweight and light heavy.. He'd defo have the belt then
