I dont know if this has been stated, but what are thoughts of silva losing to belfort and moving DOWN in weight to fight GSP at 170? He's fought there before, but it would be a big weight loss for him....

I do not believe that Silva can make it to 170. Firstly he's not young anymore and second, look how lean he already is, where would he lose 15 pounds? :P

Not sure if it's been said already, but if this fight does happen; what goes on with Fitch and Okami?

Not that I'm complaining. I mean are these guys just supossed to sit around for a year fighting guys they've already beat? Or fight guys who other guys have beat that they beat? (that last sentence was a little confusing)

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

If Georges fights Anderson he'll move up to 185 permanently, so his 170lb title will be vacated, and he'll take the time to move up properly. That means should Anderson beat Belfort he'll probably fight Okami and give GSP time to put the weight on and move up to 185 properly.
