Lol Dan Henderson has been on a tear since losing to Jake Sheilds, but Anderson Silva will still kick his ass 10 times out of 10, henderson has no wrestling anymore and no cardio, all he is a dude with a massive h bomb, which i remember




As for Chris Wiedman let's be real he may be the only true talent left at MW, but would anyone put their lifesaving that he will beat Anderson? Your take away the chael fights, Anderson Silva has never came close to losing, or has even been in a situation where your like o shit he's going to lose.

Any man that can KO forrest with a slap, make vitor hands look like an amateur, finish bonnar...the list goes on, but when Anderson fights he truly makes professional ufc fighters look like they belong in a Kimbo Slice youtube video.

not even close to true, lhw has very good well rounded fighters that have only very recently come forth in gustafsson, texeira, te huna, machida is still there, shogun when in shape is great but i guess that doesn't count and jones is fantastic. What does mw have? next to nothing

yes and besides hendo and chael his competition has been mostly pathetic, jon jones pummelled vitor like anderson did, jones did the same to rampage, jones did the same to shogun and he killed machida with a choke, also that H bomb never landed in that anderson fight so your wrong about anderson shaking it off it was nowhere near a h bomb that hit anderson.

You guys complain about guys like Mayweather not going after Pacquiao or other UFC champions dancing around with the idea (GSP). But Silva at the twilight of his career is inviting the bigger challenges. People want Big or Superfights, but Silva at 36 getting criticized for actually going for them is puzzling to me.

If Silva fought Rampage, Machida, and Shogun, he'll probably knock all three of them out with relative ease. Jon Jones vs Silva is the only match up in MMA that is interesting, it can go either way, but at the end of the day I see Silva winning just the smarter and more experience fighter out of the two.

At the end of the day no matter how much the haters hate, you can't deny the talent of Anderson Silva. Realistically name me another mma fighter that does what he does in there?

What Hendo really mean is:
"Damn, I would like to be picking my opponents myself, but the amount of accomplishments and prestige I have are not enough for that. I envy you, Anderson."

Not sure if this is a bad attempt at humour or if you're just a Zuffa fanboy who pays no attention to accomplishments outside of the UFC. Either way, I send along similar sentiments as UFC_OWNS

This might come off a little rude but... Rockhold is the SF MW Champion, a unification fight sounds intriguing. Cung Le is a popular movie star, fighting a name like that sounds intriguing. GSP is the #2-3 P4P fighter and very popular, a superfight sounds intriguing. Silva also wanted to fight Bisping in England, Bisping fighting for the Title in front of his home crowd sounds intriguing. All 3 have a good back story to it, that helps promote the fight. Silva is looking for more fame and glory.

What incentives can Weidman provide other than Silva having another W notch on his record? Their is 2 things holding up Silva-Weidman, Silva doesent want to fight Weidman. And secondly they are looking for a venue that doesnt hurt the appeal of the fight, thats almost guaranteed to be Brazil. Despite the little fanfare of the opponent, Brazil will eat up a Silva fight whether it was Okami, Bonnar and now Weidman. Silva is the best P4P fighter on the planet, but he basically cleaned out the MW division, the current crop of MW contenders are basically undesirable slim pickings as of late, Silva is gaining less after every fight. The MW division is not devoid of talent now, just suitable matchups for Silva.
