Also it is kind of funny that people are complaining about him not fighting at 205 because that would put the MW title on hold which a lot of people complain about when a champ goes to coach on TUF.
ive been saying this for a while, but i still think Silva should just relinquish hes MW title and chase down the LHW title.

before people starting saying "but Machida is there..", lets be realistic, as good as machida is, the UFC will do everything in their power for him not to get a title shot due to the "excitement" factor. i for one, do not agree on this but it seems to be the truth.

how much more exciting would it be to see Silva hunt down the LHW title instead of defending it against fighters who, against him look mediocre at MW? i for one, think it would be amazing.

Silva is saying this, not the people. The fans are just repeating what he's saying.

But see, he still gets the best match up ever in Thiago Silva.

I was thinking like you not too long ago but I think the UFC realized Machida will be ending up there sooner or later and they can't do much about it. So instead of continuing "fighting" against him, they're starting to hyping him up. That's why you'll see Dana saying more and more stuff like "Machida is Anderson's successor.. could be the next best P4P fighter, etc." and that's also why he's co-main event on a pretty stacked card, when he's fighting a not so well known fighter.

I wouldn't be surprised if after a win over Thiago, he gets a top LHW or the loser of Page/Wandy and after that he gets a shot to the title (should he win both fights). Thales "who?" is getting an undeserved title shot, so why not Machida after all.

its not a very sexy matchup but if Leites gets Silva down he could actually pull off the upset. Id throw loot on Leites at +450 or 500
