If anyone's gonna give him a fight at 185, it's gonna be Weidman, if he's not interested in that fight, he needs to give the title up and go fight GSP because no one besides Anderson is gonna beat Weidman at 185.
I think he will fight Weidman, sounded like he wanted to defend his belt a few times in the post fight interview. Weidman's time will come.

Bisping will get destroyed and i want to watch.

the showboating is actually apart of why he beats opponenets IMO. A lot of people have talked about how silva wins by mentally dominating... He does this by this point here

'He basically is saying 'I'm not going to beat you with your weakness. I'm going to beat you with what you thought was your strength'

And just by going out there and showing a person he is confident enough to do that, they mentally crumble.

Everyone thought Roy Jones jr was unbeatable & in his heyday he was but then he got old & looked human. Anderson put on a show last night but it was against Bonner who hits about as hard as Forrest or bisping. You really think he would stand in front of Texiera like that? Showboating is part of the sport & its the same as Ali or Roy Jones jr. you love it or hate it & you will watch it because you either love to see him put on the show or you hope he's put to sleep. I like it I just hope he doesn't stay past his prime like Roy Jones or Ali.

Silva was going to start fighting "Greg Jackson Style" and go for the win against an average fighter coming out of retirement?!?! Can't see Bonner being that unprepared.

I don't think your giving enough credit to his opponents. Anderson has been doing those kind of things for years....these guys have spent weeks training for the fight...I really doubt it surprises them.

I enjoy his fights as much as anybody but I think you guys are giving him waaaay too much credit. I think he just does it to entertain everybody.

It's funny, I've NEVER heard any of his opponents complain about Anderson leaving his hands down. Just message boards...

Anderson Deserves every bit of credit he's getting. Yeah sure Bonnar isn't up to much, but who has ever been able to do what silva has done to Bonnar and Griffen?.

Everyone acts like he has beat cans. Alot of you guys where giving Belfort a shot at Jones and Silva front kicked him in the face. A lot of you guys hang out of Dan Henderson's a**, the guy that beat Fedor, the guy that beat Shogun in fight of The Year, what happened to him, silva choked him out. Silva is the greatest of all time, and I dnt care what he does in the cage to his opponents.

Diaz..Edgar.. Cormier.. Cain.. Mir.. Overeem.. Jon Jones

He surely hurt your feelings

As others have said, it's purely a 'mental attack'. It hasn't worked on everyone (Sonnen), but it's a solid way to throw your opponent off of his game without actually doing much work. He broke both Forrest and Bonnar with a few dodges and waves of the hand. Not many men can do that. I obviously feel badly for his opponents, as Bonnar will now surely retire and Griffin hasn't been the same man since, but hey... if you've got the gift, use it.

Some men break you with their endurance. Others break you with their wrestling. Silva breaks you with his mind. It is what it is.
