Man, Silva is so awesome. I don't mean to nuthug, but I just can't help myself. He isn't just willing to fight the best fighters they can find at whatever weight they want him to fight at, he actually WANTs to do it. Six times a year. AND he's a class act.
I'd love to see him beating all of the best at 205 too and grabbing that belt - not because I'm not a fan of any 205ers (just the opposite,) but because it'd really be a shame if he retires before he really reaches his potential. I think if he applied himself he could hold the middleweight and lightheavyweight belts at the same time, and keep them for a few years.
