I'm just hope the sport does not end up like Boxing where the Champions fight once per year. There should be a mandatory two-three title defenses per year. It keeps the divisions fresh and exciting. In my opinion anyway.

You Anderson haters amaze me! The man has fought everyone, everyone!!! He has never ducked a fight or backed out due to injury. Look at what he's done to everyone, ( minus the 5 rounds chael beat him) every contender every person that people on this forum beg and bet the farm that would destroy him, he has beaten. Chris fought a fat out of shape munoz, people say well his(Chris) only close fight was when he cut all the weight, well when munoz fought him he cut a ton of weight 2 days out. Anderson will fight whoever the ufc puts in front of him, he has done it for years and years. Let's enjoy the last few he has left.

Lmao! Seriously? Mayweather will NOT fight Pacquiao. I love watching Silva I just don't like who he's become & the ufc middleweight division has always been the weakest link now they have real challengers with styles that can challenge Silva & you people don't want to see it? Really? Lutter(journeyman), Cote (journeyman), Okami top 15 maybe?, Leites has anyone heard from him since?, maia etc. We finally get to see some real challenges in this division.

what an insane statement it was that he was afraid of Sonnen as well but then he beat Sonnen and I thought these ridiculous comments would cease to exist but they wont.
Good stuff.

Silva has earned the right to take some time off from the sport and make some dough (which I presume he will do) outside of it. He is a mega star (especially in Brazil) and can do a bunch of things now and make stacks without someone trying to punch his face in.

I am sure he made a killing for the Chael rematch. He won't make anything close to that with a Weidman. 'Just put another title on the same card' someone said...ridiculous. Why would Anderson need to share ppv earnings?

There are plenty of titles now, they can be defended while Silva gets someone who puts some convincing wins together to build a bankable PPV. If Weidman is that good, he will kill a few more people, and then fight for the title and be a more marketable star.
Pretty much sums it up. Havn't seen too many posts. You should post more.

Weidman will fight again while Anderson Silva will be waiting patiently to fight GSP after the November bout.

This guy has been fighting for 15+ years now. You don't think the Chael rematch was taxing on the body and mind. I'd love to see him fight every week, but it's not gonna happen. The way I see it I get to savor the moment when his entrance song blares on the speaker. *NOTE* He's fought on average two to three times a year and four times the year he joined the UFC for the past six years.

Fighters like Weidman will continue to come and new challenges will arise. It's neverending really, but at this stage of his career marquee matchups is where it's at if he can get em. Hand picked fights has no validity or the ducking statements. He'll fight Weidman when the time comes. That's it.

I dont know why anyome is arguing. obviously they are setting up the gsp fight. the timeline is perfect.

I also love how everyone assumes the ufc wants to put on weodman vs silva. that fight wont make them any money and they risk losing a superfight. the ufc is banking on gsp beating condit.

Personally i dont understand why people want to see weidman. i think belcher deserves it more.

I know he's earned the time off. He deserves it. His next fight should be weidman cuz the kid earned it. For those of you thinking Silva is invincible need to quit being naive. Goat yes, invincible no. For everyone saying he would destroy GSP be more intelligent. GSP is the best mma wrestler there is & can put Anderson on his back. Weidman & GSP are great match ups for Silva. Silva definitely deserves more time to rest just don't spoon feed him bisping or another journeyman like rockhold which I could see soares pushing for.

Yeah, because Pacquiao won't take the tests, and anyone who thinks Mayweather wouldn't whip Pacquiao is blind.

What has Belcher done that is even remotely impressive? Beat up Rousimar Palhares, Jason MacDonald and Patrick Cote? Belcher's a can crusher atm but if he can beat Vitor he'll easily be in line, that said, he still doesn't offer Anderson anything. Weidman has the chance to grind him out for five rounds or even submit him.
