I would like to see Silva vs GSP before he moves up! But He has had two fights at 205. One of them James Irvin, whch on was an impressive KO. But Irvins style has "KO me" Anderson written all over it. Then Forrest, a better challenge for him and he made one of the most respectful guys in UFC look like an ass. I do think that moving up to 205, however, will cement his legacy. If he can go u there and beat a dominant wrestler like Rashad or someone like that and maybe hold the title at one point, i will consider him top 1 or 2 GOAT.

My dream matchup is Anderson vs Lyoto. It will never happen. They are great friends and training partners and if they dont want to fight each other then ok. If u gave me a few hundred thousand I wouldnt fight my best friend either

lol, it may have come out wrong.

basically I mean if he moves up they would then be forced to have a new champ for the division, but it isn't really the champ, it's like the runner up to Anderson....


now if he were to lose the title fair and square well then he could move up and forget about the division

to become the champ you must beat the champ, not beat some other top contender because no one could defeat the champ and he moved up in division because he's too good lol

Unless, of course, the champ retires without losing, as many believe might happen here if Anderson doesn't relinquish the belt. Now, if he doesn't relinquish it after killing Vitor, and fights twice at 205, then leaves UFC....no one beats him at 185, so there has to be a fight for the belt.
