I fear Anderson would do unspeakable things to Jake, though he is a much better fighter at MW.

A lot left to do at MW yet, not to mention Shields is moving up...
Munoz doesn't look like the guy to beat Anderson by a long shot, Weidman although impressive needs a couple more good wins at least, to be in the title picture, Lombard has beaten nobody to even hint that he could hang at the top yet and Shields moving tot he UFC has left a lot to be desired.

Has Anderson beaten them? No. Are they legitimate threats to the title, probably not.

The only thing left would be Lombard assuming he looks good in his next fight(s). Other than that, I think people would pay to see him wreck Bisping.

LHW has tons of fun match ups for him. I still think Bones would be too much for him.

Chael, I don't really care I guess. What options does he really have but to move up?

I just can't see Anderson moving up at this stage in his career. I think he is nearing the end of his career and he will stay at MW to finish everything off.

Let Sonnen move up to 205 I'm sure after 1 win he can get a shot at Jon Jones. Silva should defend his belt one more time at MW then retire.

Sonnen vs. Franklin. It has to happen. We need a 195 division.

Franklin is moving back down to MW he only fought Wandy at a catchweight because it was short notice.

Well Silva already faught at MW twice and I think the combined fight time was less than 2 rounds and 2 overwhelming victories.

Prior to tonights fight, everyone was saying that anyone with any kind of wrestling would be a real problem for Silva, guys like Munoz for example. But I think he proved that wrong tonight.

He could move up, but unless he fights Jones, no one will care. I just don't see him fighting Jones. Jones is a borderline HW. I think it's asking too much of Silva to fight a guy that size. It would be competitively unfair.

I would rather see Silva and GSP at a catch weight.
