I would like to see him come back and think of nothing else but having the MW title again, even if Silva lost it. But he has to avenge that loss at some point to hold his sway with his fans.
not to mention we would most likely see another beating if they threw him in with chuck. rich has a shot a beating silva. he just needs to train different. he needs to go train muay thai. and not like bring in some ex-kickboxer to the militech camp. he needs to find a real muay thai coach to sharpen up his stand up. cause bottom line, its sloppy, and anderson exposed that. with the power rich has if he learned to throw more straight punchs and really developed his muay thai, he could be so much more dangerous than he ever was.

it not being good for the ufc and someone being able to do it are different.

if the hw devision keeps being as thin as it is it would force dana to get new talent to challenge someone whos that dominant

Another one I'd like to see move is Joe Riggs. We all know that he's had trouble at the WWD so he should move up to a more natural weight and fight at MW. I think it might do him some good to get with guys more his hand speed and that way he can carry more weight before the fight.

If chuck beats tito and doesn't fight Silva...he should move to HW.

I agree. After losing to Hughes and GSP, Penn doesn't have anywhere to go in the WW Division. He could be the LW champ with a half-decent effort against Sherk.

MW is probably a good fit for Riggs. The UFC is really trying to groom him but he isn't going to be better than the top WW guys and they are going to be around for at least a few more years.

I think that Arvloski should cut down to LHW and see what he can do there. I think that he can take his game to the next level at that weight class.

Dude, arlovski would be a mean ass 205 pounder. I'd love to see him and chuck or him and tito go at it. Still, I think he will be allright in the HW class and will get his belt back sometime next year, after poopy pants loses it and there is a new champ for him to fight.

if tito looses against liddell, it wouldnt be a bad idea for him to drop down to middle weight, unless he wants to regain the number one contender spot again, but if he went down to middleweight he'd probaly get a title shot realy quikcly.
