The door once again opens for the Gangster from Oregon.

If indeed Silva doens't want a rematch, a certain Chael P Sonnen, will be rubbing his hands together in preparation for his return to middleweight. After a comprehensive defeat of Shogun, Chael will quickly fight Vitor Belfort where in the post fight interview he will tell the world he is coming for Weidamn to take the title that is rightfully his!

I would be happy with that, but I don't see him getting past both shogun and vitor.. great if he did but i will be major impressed if he did.

Here's a really silly idea, instead of giving Chael a title shot how about putting him against a good fighter and making him earn that title shot. I know its a quirky idea but I figure Dana should give it a shot.

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

Well what the OP is suggesting I think would qualify. If he were to beat Shogun and Vitor and Chris were still the champion, I think there would be a legitimate case for a shot.

A. If Chael beats Shogun, move to B.
B. If Chael beats Vitor move to plan C.
C. Plan C Chael gets title fight.. the old fashon way!!!!!!

Chael is too big for 185 nowadays. His performance against Bisping made that clear.

Sonnen would beat last night's Chris Weidman.

Frankly, the beatings Sonnen put on Anderson are what softened him up and allowed Chris to get this win.

I absolutely believe that Sonnen can out wrestle Weidman. That's said Weidman. Has more tools in his belt. Chael and Vitor likely are celebrating what last night means to there careers
