MMABay: Wanderlei Silva to drop to 185lbs in 2009

http://www.mmabay.co.uk/Story%2000210.html

Quote:
Former Pride FC champion, Wanderlei “The Axe Murderer” Silva is set to move to middleweight following his devastating loss to Quinton “Rampage” Jackson last weekend, his forth in five outings.

Sources close to the aggressive Brazilian EXCLUSIVELY revealed to MMABay that he will be moving to 185 pounds after spending the last couple of years fighting bigger men and coming up short.

Often in his Pride days, Wanderlei would come in under the allotted weight, as he did last weekend at UFC 92, finding the weight cutting very easy to cope with.

This move could potentially set the middleweight division on fire with the likes of Michael Bisping, Nate Marquardt and former foe, Dan Henderson in the mix.

If successful at middleweight, “The Axe Murderer” could find himself opposite 185 pound champion, Anderson Silva which I’m sure every fan would love to see.

By Michael Pepper.
I hope this happens, of course the bigger name fights for Wanderlei are at 205lbs, but I really don't ever see him going on a run for the title. 185lbs is where he needs to be.

I'd love to see him go toe to toe with Leben, Cote, Bisping and when he gets the shot, Anderson Silva.

Wasn't that site banned because they suck?

I wouldn't be suprised if Wandy dropped to 185 and I think he would fit in great.

Wandy wants to take one to land one and when you are outweighed by 20-30 lbs it's hard to do that but at MW outside of Anderson I'm not sure who is going to beat him.

I think Bisping and Silva would be a great fight...but give him a can or two first to help hikm adjust to the cut and put that shit on the undercard because those first fights in the new weight have been boring lately.

Yeah, I was posting some stuff off of that site and none of it came true.

However I also wouldn't be surprised if Wandy dropped to 185.

Glad to hear it.I dont see anyone except silva beating him at MW.They should give him a warm up fight before he fights a ranked fighter, though.It would be the best thing ever if he became middleweight champ
