I'm sure he didn't like it.

I agree here. I am certain that Lombard is going to dispose of Boetsch in quick fashion. For me his next logical opponent should be Weidmann. That leaves Bisping vs. Silva. The only problem is that Bisping has to beat Stann first which I see happening, but anything could happen. If Stann does win I think he needs another fight or two before a shot at the title. So than that would leave the door open for Rashad to drop the weight and come down for a title shot. So basically I think the next shot at Silva is Bisping's to lose and if that happen's Silva may not fight for another year (unless he has the fight with Rashad.)

Although I think Bisping is the next in line, if he has grade A striking, what exactly does that make Silva's?

I don't really like when Silva says so and so is an unknown fighter. He himself was unknown to the non die hard fans like myself when he fought franklin after just one win. So he would be graceous enough, to fight someone who has beat mutiple people in their division. IMO, if lombard win, or weidman, or even bisping if he wins his next fight are all acceptable candidates for a title shot.

1. BJ "The Prodigy" Penn
2. Dan "Hollywood" Henderson
3. George "Rush" St Pierre

Give us Bisping vs Anderson. He just fought a wrestler so give him a striker. Plus Bisping didnt lose by much to Chael, hes still above Weidman and Lombard right now imo. This would be the most exciting fight available for Anderson right now at MW. Let Rashad fight Weidman/Vitor if hes interested in going to MW.

I'd like to see him fight all of the contenders at MW he hasn't yet fought. None of them really stand out as huge matchups but that doesn't really matter all that much. There are really only two fights I am interested in seeing at 205 more than the MW contenders and those are Shogun and Bones.

...Of course Bisping can't stand with Silva. That's what I meant by it being an exciting fight. Bis is a stand-up fighter. Bis would most likely get KO'd by the 2nd round...

I think Stann knocks bispings head off and we all stop talking about him being a contender.

I don't want to see bis fight for the title. It will just be another highlight real KO for Andy. This man needs challenges before he retires, not people who play into his style perfectly.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.
