It might have cost Hioki and Machida their title shot but if they cant beat some top contenders, then no way can they beat the champion.
He probably would get an Anderson Silva "Unification" Fight if he pushed for it enough. But he still believes that its too soon and he is not ready. Its in contrast to Weidman who after beating Munoz thinks he is already ready to beat Silva. Confidence is good, but I can respect fighters who want to be brought along more slowly and climb that ladder to respectability and name recognition, than being fodder.
That must be the case with most of these guys then, Vitor just beat Bisping who would have got a shot with a win and he didn't mention him once. Rockhold could get that fight with the push but he isn't making it, Lombard is obsessed with kicking Munoz and Bisping's asses and Belcher was going on and on about how he wanted to fight Bisping.
It seems like the only two people who really want to fight Anderson at 185 are Weidman and Bisping.
