Rumor, this is the same place that hosts John Ruiz fights, and the likes of Evander Holyfield, who by some miracle is still cleared to fight.

I doubt Andy will get banned, but I can the technicalities in the threat.
And yet Vegas hosted about every Mayweather or Jones Jr fight ever, both fighters known for carrying fighters despite the opponent being completely overmatched.
EDIT: How appropriate was the Ali reference on Saturday? Another guy that comes to mind for carrying opponents. Mind you he didn't catch **** for it like Silva does. However, Ali's performances against Terrell and Patterson were very similar, cruel and tactless beatings of fighters who were completely outclassed. Shouting, and taunting throughout, and refusing to finish the battered fighters.
Also, when a boxer coast, no one bats an eyelash, however an MMA striker does it and the world gets flipped on his side and he should be banned from fighting in certain cities.
