I'd much rather see Sonnen fail at life even more and lose to Stann viciously, then get cut from the UFC due to overall douchebagginess. I love seeing pieces of shit get what they deserve.

Silva needs to face the winner of Sonnen vs Stann then go 205 to keep my respect. Nothing left for him at MW past that fight, if Sonnen loses to Stann then too bad.

Dana says he likes guys to move up when they clean a division out, he's dangerously tempted by the paper potential for Silva vs GSP though. It is a waste of time on Silva's part, he is not getting younger and would in all probability turn GSP into a cabbage.

Sonnen is lucky to create another chance so soon, if he messes it up then he's not worth a rematch anyway, I don't care how well he did the first time. I'd rather see the P4P great test new water and fulfill his potential than keep revisiting past victories.

This is a dumb comment. Yea who wouldn't love Silva vs. Rampage/Shogun/Jones. But why act like Silva owes it to anyone to move up? What other past greats moved up in weight? Randy started at HW and went down. Hughes never moved up, GSP has yet to step foot vs. any opponent although he has basically cleaned out a division more than Silva has. Penn has moved up...but really he hasn't. He has fought his whole career at different weights and had to move up now because he got beat twice at LW. Did Chuck move up? Tito? Did Faber ever try to move to LW? No, he eventually got beat up and had to move down. Nick Diaz has fought at 185...yet he has settled in at 170. What fighters have moved up in weight to take on new challenges? Some like Hendo have moved down and then up just tp witch things up. However Henderson and Franklin are guys made for a 195 division. They are tweeners who actually fight better at 205 anyway.

Point is at 36-37 years old, Silva owes us nothing. Why should he go take on Jones, who is perhaps the biggest fighter that isn't HW? Why at 37 is he expected to go take on a 23 year old phenom? It isn't boxing, they aren't moving 6 or 7 lbs in weight class.

No other fighter has moved up because of lack of competition. Why is Anderson expected to do it? Especially at age 37?

Oh this Is just to piss Nuthuggers off.
I dont care If Chael loses to Anderson again. I dont know Chael, never talked to him, but I like his vicious fighting style, and his interview make me laugh.
Do I think Chael Is the favorite at the bookies In a rematch? Nope, do I think he'll win? Probably not. Do I think he'll give Anderson a fight, absolutely!

The difference between all the fighters you listed and Silva, is that they have not done what Silva is currently doing. The whole Top 10 MW list is made up of guys who stylistically don't have much for Silva and (mostly) guys Silva has already beat. There's nothing left for him there.

The reason Hughes, Chuck, Tito, Faber never moved up is that they were getting destroyed in their own divisions by the new guys, they cannot be compared to Silva, Silva is still killing new guys and he's pretty much run out now. And so, your comment is rather dumb. Anderson's situation is the first of it's kind in the UFC.

And I didn't say I want him to move up and immediately face Jon Jones, he's already 2-0 at LHW and the matchups there are dream fights not including Jones.

UMMMM YEAA...and if Anderson sticks around, perhaps he gets derailed by a young guy. Hughes dominated for years, Tito did as well, Chuck did, GSP has dominated the last 4-5 years and no one cares if they sat or still sit in the same division.

Anderson probably doesn't think he can beat Jones. So why move up? Just to please everyone else? It ain't your career...and no one else has done it. So to act like Anderson HAS to do it is selfish and ridiculous.

GSP has cleaned out a division just as much. Silva said he would try to go to 175 even though we know that couldn't happen. People have hinted at GSP-SIlva for a few years now. Why aren't people crying about GSP and how he won't accept the challenge? He is the younger fighter. If anyone is moving anywhere it should be him. But no, the 37 year old Silva has to move around.

I would like to see Silva dismantle like he did to Okami after having experience fighting him. Maybe some jaw breakage and wiring shut is too much to ask for but hmmm...
