It's a shame.

I really wanted Vitor to Flash KO Anderson.

Maybe then Anderson would reconsider retiring from MMA while he's in his prime.

Maybe if Shogun steamrolls Machida, A.Silva could get in the mix @ LHW. Shogun could show him how much he's REALLY earned that belt.

Shogun at his best (with wins over Machida, Rampage, Lil Nog, Arona, Liddell, Overeem x2) vs. Anderson would be great.

Just my 2 cents.

I'm 100% sure you're being sarcastic, and I don't believe Anderson is ducking Belfort, but do think it's lame how his manager is saying Dan, Nate, and Belfort don't deserve a shot. I think Dan deserves it more than all of them but either of those guys could be challenging for Silva's belt.

Also if he did have surgery I'm all for him healing up but as of late, his manager has been getting under my skin since he acts like a guy needs to be on a 10 fight win streak before challenging Silva.

I am officially no longer a fan of Anderson Silva. You know one of the things that makes Fedor great? The guy just fights whoever is put in front of him. What is with this not wanting to fight anyone at middleweight? He doesnt want to fight Hendo or Nate right now, he wants them to fight each other first. For some reason he doesnt want to fight Vitor. There is always Okami. The guy has won three in a row just like Hendo and Nate. His only UFC loss is to Franklin, he is seven and one in the octagon. If the guy doesnt want to fight any one at middleweight then it is time to give up the belt and move up in weight. I like real champions like GSP and Fedor, they dont bitch, they just fight.

My exact sentiments... + rep. I'm getting really sick of the way they are handling all of this, and just want him to stfu and fight.

im sure he will be upset when he hears your not a fan anymore. i agree its good when fighters dont care who they fight. but i dont think there is anything wrong with having an opinion on who you think deserves a shot at your title.

especially when some of the contenders have been a class or two below, or you have destroyed them once already.

Matt Hughes never spoke on opponents and he's a complete cock. i just dont think its a big enough reason to go from being a fan to not. just my opinion

It's one thing having an opinion, and it's another thing altogether not signing the fight agreement. I mean other than Nate, Dan and Belfort, and perhaps Okami, who else is there for him to fight. He keeps talking about fighting HW's, but he needs to realize he's the 185 pound champ and needs to defend the belt. If he wants to try and fight Mir, or other LHW's I'm fine with that, but relinquish the 85lbs title so others can fight for it.

Its not that he is turning down Hendo or Nate. It is the fact that there are three or four guys who arguably deserve a title shot and he has no interest in fighting any of them. I think the biggest part of being a champion is defending your belt and he doesnt seem to want to do that. Its really hard to respect a fighter that buys into his own hype as much as Silva seems to these days (yeah, i know he earned that hype but i dont think that should be a free ticket to act like an arrogant jerk when offered fights).

SerevalAssassin has a little shameless behaviour in the past
There is a big difference between Silva saying someone doesn't deserve a tile shot and him actually declining a fight.

Quote:
Silva, however, says it's not up to him whether he fights on UFC 108.

"It's doctor's decision," he added in English. "My elbow is hurt, but my doctor said come back to training, come back to fight."
It appears to me he will fight Vitor if Dana doesn't change his mind and the article also talks about trying to set the most consecutive title defenses so why are people saying Silva is not focusing on the MW division at all?

IMO, it seems as if there is a lot of mis interpretations of what is quoted and what is said. All signs are pointing to the Vitor/Silva match at 108, there is absolutely no concrete evidence to show otherwise. It would seem as if the only way this fight doesn't happen is if Silva isn't cleared medically. Most of this hype and s*#t talking began with Hendo because HE wants to fight Silva. It wasn't long before that it appeared there wasn't anyone who wanted to fight Silva at MW as he began to dismantle the entire division. Than Dan KTFO Bisping and Nate had the impressive KO of Maia...now all of a sudden there are all of these fighters at MW who can contend. Vitor is a rejuvenated face in the octagon with a nice win over Franklin, its also a money maker fight from a promotion standpoint. I think it gives the fans an entertaining fight, at least on paper. Silva will win the fight though. Personally I would like to see Silva/Okami being that is Silva's last lost, albeit to a DQ. I don't think we can take a translation or a trainer's opinion for more than what it is, just stirring up the pot a little bit.
