Really, like other posters have said there would be a very long list of fighters that would love to have a shot at Silva even at short notice. Since Silva took no damage in his fight with Cote he won't have a problem getting cleared, you only get suspended if you sustain an injury and when you don't you could get cleared to fight the very next day if you wanted.
It all depends on who exactly is willing to step up, I think that realistically Silva's gonna have to wait until UFC 92 or 93 before he gets to fight.
