If he needs a challange he should go to heavyweight i know his size will put him in a disadvantage but his skills would pull him threw. I say heavyweight since he wont drop, hes beaten most of the middleweight, he wont go after the 205 due to machida so heavyweight is a good bet. I wouldnt mind seeing Anderson vs Couture, brock lesnar, werdum ,or gonzanga.

he probably wants to persue a boxing career now, hes been hinting at it for awhile. I dont blame him he probably wants to test the waters of the boxing world for a little bit. He will be back theres no doubt in my mind.

A Silva is the best no question and I love watching him fight. I hope he stays forever but I still have a problem with this whole not fighting a training partner or friend. How many friends does this guy have?!?!?! I mean he'll eventually have to fight one of them or putter to a halt and do nothing but offer rematches in the UFC. These guys are in the business of fighting and need to get with it.

He could make 20x more than he does now with one boxing match. Potential for a 30mil payday if it was someone like Mayweather.
