I thought of that, but unlikely. He could have pulled out when he was injured, but he fought through it and won. One thing you'll notice is he was standing stationary rather than moving laterally like in the Okami fight and most of his previous ones. His defense and footwork is half of his game plan the other half is his precision striking.

What about moving up to LHW and fighting The Sandman when he had absolutely NO UPSIDES AT ALL in taking that fight. I actually was worried cuz Irvin is a powerful dude who could take a shot then he faced an ex-LHW champ in Forrest Griffin. It's like saying GSP goes up to MW and fight Brian Stann, Alan Belcher, or Demian Maia for a warm up.

Then he took on Vitor Belfort who without a doubt was the biggest threat in my opinion. You know you're good(delete) GREAT when you have a row of fighters you've ALREADY beat wanting a rematch.

A fighter that elite bows to NO ONE.

The fight is gonna happen, Silva has made the fact he doesn't want to fight forever knows and he knows outside of GSP this is the biggest money fight available for him.

He bowed to Sonnen after their fight its simple they dont want this fight they want as many weak easy competitors as they can get, simply because chael is the only one to get close to beating silva, your telling me you want vitor no.1 contender for beating akiyama? after getting his face kicked off, or munoz silvas team mate who propbably wont even fight eachother and if they did it would look like okami vs silva 2. Or bisping? please.

Already said that this fight makes sense, but pointed out a tactical move that may have Chael face Vitor. Others would like to see it too...I definitely wouldn't mind.

Last I checked Anderson already FINISHED Chael and the bowing was in context to not fearing any man not literally...lolz.

Though I think Chael's last fight was good indeed, I don't think just one fight should be enough to get the title shot.
As a fan I would love to see it though.

From that article it sounds like his manager wants to prolong his injury and make Sonnen fight someone else. Anderson needs step up and take this fight, regardless of when. If there is even a hint of doubt whether he is avoiding him to any extent his legacy will be ruined.

I know Anderson has never dodged or avoided anyone and this is his manager talking. You could see it in Ed Soares' face that he really took it more personal then Anderson when Sonnen was giving his speech.

anyone saying Chael doesn't deserve a shot just doesn't want Silva to lose. Sonnen absolutely dominated him and got subbed, no one else has come even close to dominating Silva. Injured or not, Sonnen is so clearly the obvious fight for Silva that denying it simply wreaks of nuthugging. Silva needs to fight Sonnen for the sole reason that he's #1 p4p in the world, if you are the best fighter in the world you don't get dominated for 4 and a half rounds. Silva needs to prove it was a fluke if he wants to keep his #1 monniker, and the fight needs to happen asap. There is no debate here, Vitor, Henderson.... etc. etc. do not deserve a fight with Anderson. Let the top fighters in the world fight to find out who is the best, that is the UFC's foundation and waiting on Silva vs. Sonnen II is stupid. If Anderson is injured past January give Chael Vitor or Hendo (both whom he should beat easily) then they fight.

Let's get two things straight as we see these horses being beaten to death:

1. Silva will absolutely positively fight Sonnen again if Zuffa has anything to say about it. Whether Silva beat Sonnen already is immaterial - and I'm saying this as a Silva fan. Most likely it will be Silva's next fight. It will likely be bigger than UFC 100, and Zuffa (and now Fox) won't say no to that money and publicity. There's no way in hell Silva and Soares can even say no to the fight without losing face; dodging Sonnen II would always be a sub-title to Silva's imminent UFC Hall of Fame induction. And it will be hell of a fight, better than any conceivable matchup left for Silva (at this weight class).
2. People really need to stop discussing Sonnen's terms. Even if Sonnen wasn't trolling (which I'm sure he was), UFC is not a kids' playground where such terms are set in real life. He is a showman - and a freakishly good wrestler -, and he sold the fight.

I'd like to punch Soares in the face a few times. It'll be sweet when the other brazilian fighters realize he's a leech and drop him like Dos Santos did. His only purpose is to translate ffs!

Hopefully Chael steps up the shit talking another couple notches and forces Silva to take the fight.

It seems like Silva, his management, and his fans want nothing to do with a second fight and I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if they drag out this injury in hopes of Sonnen losing to someone else. It won't happen though, the only people to give Chael problems at 185 are Maie and Palhares and they're much lower ranked.

The UFC could pacify them and put on Belfort vs Sonnen in a month if they wanted to and it would make no difference. Sonnen will do to Belfort what he did to Stann.

The blackhouse plan could backfire also because Anderson isn't getting any younger and it just gives Chael more time to work on triangle defense. Hell, he could have stalled in the fifth round last time and been fine. Just hope that this fight gets made as soon as possible.
