He will make it up to the fans by setting Anderson in front of a Forrest like opponent who will get KO'ed in the first round and everyone will say Silva is the greatest again. He won't ask who the fans want to see fight, he won't put a title fight on the air for free, and he won't get fedor for a while at least. (personally I don't think he ever will.)

I like the Jon Jones or Couture fight idea though. A fight with Silva and Bones would have some of the craziest strikes anyone has ever seen, and couture would at least actually bring it to Silva. Would lose but it would be a forrest like fight and KO.

Randy did great against Lesnar not saying Lesnar is even in the same breath as Silva but lets be honest Randy would actually have a legitimate gameplan. I would love to see Randy get Silva backed into the cage and work his boxing.

Silva is a Ferrari and Randy is a civic when comparing speeds. You can also say that Silva is just as good against the cage as Randy is. Silva's Muay Thai clinch is as deadly as you can get(rich franklin)

To make it up to the fans who are diposed by Silva and angry at him. There's really only one option, make Silva bleed.

Put him in the cage wih the next best striker in the UFC that he can fight. I believe that fight will be determined by Machida v Rua 2. And since he wouldn't fight Machida. Make him fight Rua, win or lose. And if Rua gets the title, and Silva refuses to fight for "Lyoto's belt" as he's refered to it. Ask him for his belt and show him the door. Fighters have some leeway in who they fight, but for him to say he won't fight Rua because Machida would want a rubber match is insulting to his employers.

If your boss told you to do something and you said ****off would you keep your job?
