I totally agree. I think fighting Chuck is easily the best option.
1) This would be a HUGE PPV buy. Liddell still is a massive sell, and its an actual NAME for Silva to fight, something that we havent seen for a little while.
2) Its really win-win for both guys. Neither guy would really lose much credibility for losing. Chuck loses, and everyone just figures Silva is that badass, and Silva loses and he has the excuse "he's fighting above his weight class against one of the greatest all time LHW"
Both guys should be ready physically for this fight, and I cant see either guy having a problem with the marketability of the fight.
What I *dont* want to see is GSP or BJ Penn vs Silva. I dont know why people want Silva to fight down, when he's already proven he can fight up. Why make things easier?
I love GSP, and he's easily my 2nd favorite fighter, but even I can admit that its too much for him. Silva has too much reach, and GSP wont have the same strength advantage. Same thing goes for BJ Penn vs Silva, its just too much natural size advantage for Silva.
Silva vs Liddell/Couture(at 205)
That should be the UFC 95 ticket.
