Yeah, the web thingy trounces all. I wonder if Spiderman stores it in his belly or if it "auto-generates" when it's needed.

Hmmm, I'll have to wiki that.

As for Anderson wanting to fight 6 times a year, all I can say is...

While I would love to see Silva stay at MW the "big money" fights are not there. Fighting Cote, Okami, Hendo again, Bisping, Marquardt again is not going to net him big paydays. If he plans to stay in the UFC and wants the big PPV cuts he needs to have Joe Silva setup Liddell, Wandy, and Rampage matches.

I know he has said the LHW title is Machida's but he doesnt have to fight for a title. Guys like Liddell and the loser of Wandy/Page are not going to be in the title hunt so those would be safe fights.

Gonzaga vs dos Santos - UFC on VS
Vera vs Jones - UFC on VS
Bibs vs Hansen - Dream 13
GSP vs Hardy - UFC 112
Gomi vs Florian - UFN 21
Nelson vs Struve - UFN 21

I second that, just give him what he wants so he can continue his streak of domination.

Maybe if I had money it would be different, but I barely have enough to live on, so it takes awhile I guess
Even though they say it doesn't, the country they are coming from makes an impact also. My wife is Swedish and there was much less hassle and waiting, unlike a co-worker of mine who is married to a woman from El Salvador. They have been jumping through hoops for years.

I didn't think much when I first saw him but this guy is a beast, minus the omega-shinobi bullshit. He needs some more big money fights...

Anderson should make outside of UFC run. Fight Moussaaa, Akiyama, Misaki, Jacare, Shields, Lawler, anyone who has the balls to throwdown with him. Then he can fight 10 times a year!!!

Support Mixed Martial Arts, not Ultimate Fighting

Regarding the citizenship thing.

I came here on a B1/B2 holiday visa, and while i was here got serious with the girl i was staying with. We got married, partitioned for an adjustment of status from non-immigrant to immigrant, proved it was the real deal, and i got a 2 year conditional permanent residency card. When that expired we again proved it was a legit marriage (kids help with that) and i got my 10 year permanent green card.

So yes, it can be that easy....although i think your gf being from Mexico will throw up some additional barriers i didn't have coming from Australia.

As far as Silva is concerned....let him fight as often as the athletic commission lets him. Why not?!

Demian Maia may be the Fred Astaire of jiu-jitsu, but it’s too bad Silva is the Gene Kelly of kicking everyone’s ass.
