The middle weight belt came into play at ufc 33, there has been 4 champions then silva. He has held that belt for 2013 days, the second highest is 497, who is rich franklin.
I can see what you're saying here. But...meh...

I just don't like seeing the same fights twice in a row. Even if it's a close BS decision, you should'v finished the fight.

But I guess I'm old school.

Anyway, he got it, now its for Silva to not only shut his mouth, but to crush him once and for all.
Are you for real? Round three saw Mike get utterly dominated. It was the only clear round of the fight, and I'm to believe that had it gone on for two more, Mike would have 'torn Sonnen apart'. How logical.

As for the original question, as others have said, it depends. If either Silva or GSP were to get demolished, then they'd likely fight and earn their rematches/title shots. GSP would without question. He didn't rematch Serra until after fighting Koscheck and Hughes. Anderson is trickier. I'm sure it would be a case of 'one fight for a title shot', as the man isn't getting any younger.

Im pretty sure if silva lost they would pull the "Anderson silva got bored and now hes motivated. We have seen how dangerous a bored silva was, IMAGINE A MOTIVED SILVA. That's argueably the P4P best fighter in the world"

Cant you hear joe rogan saying that?
