Anderson Silva at 205!

Im sure this has been brought up before so forgive me if so, I am new here. But am I the only one dying to see Anderson Silva at 205. There are so many more interesting fights for him there. Aside from Vitor Belfort who you can make an argument he doesnt deserve a shot at 185, Theres nothing there for Silva. Him & Marquart just doesnt do it for me. I dont see Nate taking that one. Now at 205 theres Shogun, Vera, Rashad, Thiago, and they dont want to do it but we all would like to see Silva vs. Machida I think.

How do you guys feel and what would you like to see?

Welcome to the forum.

Well, Anderson has already had 2 fights at 205 against James and Forrest, so it's nothing new for him.

As for him fighting there, it's a good thing, as the division is already stacked and he's cleaned out 185, so there's not much left for him there other than rematches (and Vitor).

I've seen both fights. and I said this has been probably brought up before so dont try that internet smack talk with the "go away". People that talk shit on the internet are garbage. Usually wouldnt say anything in person.

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.

Yeah seriously, this is a booming time for MMA and there's probably a couple hundred new fans a day. If we neglect them MMA dies so it's pretty obvious, by nice to new people?

I agree.

Silva should move up and STAY at Light Heavyweight.

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)
