Nobody should get a title shot at 185lbs before beating Vitor Belfort... That's all they had to do, nobody would complain with a Weidman title shot if he were to beat Vitor but the fact is he only beat Munoz and then sat out for a year.

That's all very well in theory. But flesh it out. What if Vitor beats them all? What then? What is Silva supposed to be doing while Vitor is going through all the contenders? Is he supposed to sit there twiddling thumbs waiting for Vitor to lose?

The fact that theres only one other solid top tier MW outside of Silva kind of proves my point. If the UFC had 5 or 6 Vitor quality fighters at MW then we can start to see more sensible matchups. But they dont. They have slim pickings. None of the divisions are deep enough to have the top 5 all fighting top quality experienced opponents all the time.

A lot of words when all I really want to ask is... if not Chris Weidman, then who? I want to see Silva fight damn it. I dont want to be waiting for millennia while a MW who is deemed to have "earned it" comes out of the woodwork. At that rate, Silva will only fight once a year if we are lucky = no thanks. I would rather he stays busy with un-deserved matchups any day of the week. Especially when un-deserved fighter is a beast like Chris Weidman.

You raise some good points but I would prefer to see Anderson beating up 205ers until the MW division sorts itself out. If Vitor were to beat Weidman he would have a pretty good case for getting a rematch at Anderson.

Weidman V Jacare, Weidman V Mousasi (I wish he'd hurry up and drop), Weidman V Belfort are all fights that Chris could've taken to become a legitimate no.1 contender and then he would not have to deal with ring rust against a guy like Anderson.

If you're not on the fight promotion train, answers get much more balanced:
