Thats probably true, but I give Anderson more chance of beating Brock then I do of Maia or Hardy beating Silva and GSP respecivly. If the UFC can put those mismatches on, then why not Silva vs Brock? Par the course, surely?

If Andy were to go up to LHW, he would certaninly have to face several competitors befores having a chance at the title,
so when he reached the top of the ladder, probably Machida wouldn´t be the champ, so i don´t see Machida as the problem in going up to LHW.

The real problem is his age, the man has 34 yo, so being a fighter that relys on speed and agility he has to think in something that can be achieved quickly cause he will loose those eventually.

My guess is that the HW ladder is not as big as the LHW one, therefore, i see it as the only path for him to relly become a legend.

Go HW Andy and give the fans the show they deserve to see.

Its obvious Silva gets a hard-on at the thought of fighting at HW. I say go for it Anderson! Show us your full potential against the big lumps. The truth is, absolutely nothing will do more for Silvas legacy than capturing the HW belt. He knows this. We all know this. Beating GSP is great, but getting the HW belt seems so absurd that if he pulls it off he will never EVER be forgotten. He will become the Ali of MMA.
im with you man

Who cares if people don't think he can beat Brock?
It would still be nice to see Anderson worried about his opponent for once instead of vica versa.

Word.

I actually wish the UFC would divide HW into two divisions - Heavyweights and Super Heavyweights - I think Anderson would be able to hang with most 235ish pounders, but his problem would be with freaks of nature like Brock and Shane Carwin. A fight like Anderson Silva vs. Cain Velasquez would be incredible. I doubt it'll ever happen, but a fight like that would give Anderson a serious threat, but it would be much more possible than a fight with a behemoth.

NO.

He hasn't finished his last three title defenses.

He doesn't deserve to move up to LHW.

Despite possesing amazing MMA skill set, he has developed an over-defensive, boring, almost riskfree striking style where the level of action in his fights depend wholly on his opponent's willingness to engage.

Fun trivia: In danish "kamp" means "match" or "fight". So Martin Kampmann really lives up to his name.

So can GSP move up as he hasnt finished his last 2 fights?

Silva has had 11 UFC fights and finished 8 of them, how does he not deserve it.

So what if he's got bored of fighting cans, the answer isnt for him to stay at MW its for him to move up and face tougher fighters that will offer him some challenge.
