Who's next for A. Silva?

...A rematch with Yushin Okami lingers, though the Japanese fighter has been missing in action with a bum knee since his March victory against the late Evan Tanner.

Who do you think will be next on the line for Silva for his next fight in 3 months? I was thinking Okami but will he be ready to fight early 2009?

I know if GSP beats BJ, he could get Silva but will GSP get him right after BJ Penn? Because I don't see Thiago waiting 9 months to get his shot.
(anyway GSP is not next for Silva)

Also is Silva going to defend his title at 185 or move up to 205 for his next fight?

Hopefully Cote-

I think COte gained a lot of confidence form this match and will do even better next time around.

It probably won't happen, because I think we are the minority but I'd want to see this too.

Okami is scheduled to fight Dean Lister at UFC 92 and I believe Dana said something about Silva's next fight would be at 205. If Okami gets past Lister then the timing should be right that they give him his title shot next against Silva after those 2 fights.

Okami will get the next MW shot if he beats Lister, then I see Leites and Marquardt fighting for the next shot, then I see Bisping fighting Henderson/Franklin for the next shot!

Haha, that's just how I'd like to see it get played out actually.



TEAM LORD:
1. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
2. Nate Marquardt
3. Goran Reljic
4. Amir Saddolah

RANKING: TBA
TOTAL POINTS: +TBA

I think Cote should get another shot, will it happen, who knows. If it does happen again, I'm sure Silva will target that knee. Also, I don't think there would be as big of a question to a rematch, if Silva wasn't stating that he will retire next year. So with only 5 fights left, do they want to "waste" another one on Cote when it can end the same way?

Cote is out until next summer. I don't think Silva wants to wait that long before he fights again.

I'd like to see a rematch with Cote and Silva, maybe not right away, but when Cote recovers I think the UFC should give him another shot.
