There is nothing left to prove at MW, and I think it's a "joke" that Vitor Belfort might be his next fight. To my understanding, Silva has 3 fights left in his contract with the UFC. Fighting Belfort is a "waste" in my opinion.

I think Silva could beat Rashad Evans, Thiago Silva, Shogun Rua and of-course, Randy Couture.

Silva (vs) Machida is the match to be made. Too bad, it will never happen. (Unless you own UFC Unidisputed 2009 for the XBOX or PS3)
I don't get how Vitor isn't an exciting match for Silva. Vitor has the fastest hands at MW and is the best striker Silva will have faced, at the very least it will be an exciting short fight.

moving and staying at 205 is kind of a kick in the nuts for the division. It's basically saying no one can beat the champ so he moved up but here you 2 fight for the title.....

Don't worry about that man.

We have a few trolls but you shouldnt pay attention to them.

I just wanted to know everyones point of view on if Vitor deserves a shot, Who you would like to see him fight at 205or would you like to see him somewhere else and so on. Jeez just making conversation.
I don't believe Vitor deserves a title shot but the funny thing is, he doesnt believe so himself either.

He publicly stated that he thought Nate Marquardt was more deserving than him lol

I guess a Vitor/AS title fight is more marketable than Marquardt/AS and that's why the UFC decided to put that fight together.

I'd like to see AS face Shogun at 205, or Machida (but that won't happen since they are training partners)



Just ftr, we have a "MMA newbie" section we just put up a few weeks ago, where the members who are either new to the sport or don't follow it as thoroughly as others, can ask every question they want they dont feel comfortable asking in the other MMA related sections.

This is exactly what I wanted from this thread. Everyones opinion on the subject. But Im just new to the BOARDS not the sport. Ive been watching MMA since 1995 and as I said Im actually in the sport but only had a few smoker fights. Plan on going pro next year.

Back on subject, It looks like you guys agree. Silva at 205 is the right place for him to be. With 3 fights left they need to make the most of it and give him some interesting opponents and keep him motivated.

I totally agree. Shogun vs. Silva would be a great fight and Machida vs. Silva would be interesting to see. I wanna know who wins in sparring lol. Im sure it would be a lot of feeling out there and waiting for the other to be aggressive since their both somewhat counter strikers.

I too would like to know!

But AS and Machida are too respectful to publicly state who gets the better of the other in sparring.

Just fyi, double posting is against the forum rules. Edit your previous post instead. Thanks

Short fight, INDEED.

Belfort is no-threat. $5 bucks he lands a "flush" shot on Silva, and Silva walks through it.

Belfor is going to get credit for lasting 10seconds longer than Griffin did.

It could be great, or it could be like the Arlovski v Sylvia where the ref, I think it was Herb Dean that time, said, "next person who backs up, I'm taking off a point."

My opinion is that Anderson moving up to LHWT is pointless because he's not going to fight the champ. So...

Vitor Belfort isn't a "Boring" match up for Silva, but I think I'd rahter see Silva vs GSP.
