Lombard wins by KO and it's him I think. Munoz probably presents the biggest challenge style wise, but they've trained together so I don't know that that's a possibility.

I say retirement. He's solidfied his legacy.

I say you retire or go up in weight(which I won't think he'll do). There just isn't much left for you to prove.

Lombard, if he wins. Although, maybe not deserving if Munoz wins. I just Lombard will get it.

There are still some lefts for him that I wouldn't mind seeing at MW. Don't see him going to LHW.

I hope bisping. Would be like a cat playing with a mouse.

If he doesn't retire and continues his dominance he should get Mark Munoz next providing he gets past Chris Weidman.

As for Lombard he should be next after Munoz. But that's all gonna depend on his performance with Tim Boetsch.

wtf ! why isn't Alan belcher up there ? he just destroyed the guy who had the most hype in the mw division. bisping just lost to sonnen so i don't even know why his name is up there, weidman just had a crappy fight with maia and lombard han't even had a fight yet in the ufc.

Belcher has been in the ufc longer than any of those guys, i think he is more deserving than any of them.

When a guy fights three times in two years it stretches his time spent in the UFC. He was hurt, he's just now gotten back into the public eye, don't stretch the facts. Yeah, he's up there for a shot, but is he for real and not going to get reinjured? That's the issue with him.

I do love Belcher though, I've talked to him and he's a great guy. I hope he gets his shot.

i didn't stretch the facts at all.
the issue with him is getting re-injured is he for real ? all fighters get injured i dont know what you mean. he just came back from a long lay off due to injuries and just beat arguably the most dangerous guy at the time in mw division in palhares. i think that proves he is ''for real'' and that he's fine.

Yeah you're right. But I think the question about Alan getting hurt is a real one for the fans. He's pulled out before and I worry he'll do it again. He's a great guy for the job though, I think on his best day he beats anyone. That's saying something in Andy's division. Still, you did drink Foster's liar!

BTW, retire sucks as an answer. The dude is still on top of the world, why should he retire? Do you guys hate being entertained? I don't fucking get it.

There is no 'Tim Boetsch' option on the poll?

Weidman/Munoz winner. They probably won't get the shot but that's who actually deserves it imo.

Anderson Silva vs Rashad Evans sounds pretty good to me.
Book it, UFC.

Definitely not retirement. They may not be the best challengers for Silva, but that is what the UFC can offer. There are plenty of decent fights left for Silva. Munoz is my pick. Bispng, Belcher, Lombard are all good matchups as well.

id like to see him fight lombard if he wins, if not winner of weidman/munoz

I went to Ufc 90 and the title fight left a bad taste in my mouth not just the event but city as well

Last night silva erased that memory. I wanted to see a silva win. Last night he saved a Shit card

Have him face lombard next. Brazil!!!!

I think they should just get on board with having Korea make a Silva clone. It's the only hope for an opponent to defeat him.

He'll just plow through the rest of the guys on this list, ticking off wins as he goes. It doesn't really matter who is next - they'll all end up in the Spider's web at some point.

very sad that chael lost last night! Why not put anderson against rashad top contender and would make a great catchweight fight or anderson fight at 205

I did put Tim Boetsch as a option but changed it to Retirement because i wanted to see people's reaction if Andy Silva should retire or not. I dont want him to at all, hes my fav fighter along with GSP. With all this hype going on with Lombard, i wanna see what hes made of and fight Silva. The winner of Munoz/Weidman should fight the winner of Bisping/Belcher...The winner of the fight should get a shot after Lombard.

Anderson is 15-0 in the UFC and of those 15 fights only 2 went to decision and to top it off 11 of those fights have been title defenses. He is hands down the best fighter in MMA right now and most likely the best fighter ever. I don't know why anyone would want him to retire right now.

I want to see Chael go at him again.

Flame away.



However the only way I see that happening is if someone else takes the belt and then sonnen takes the belt and then Anderson comes to get it again


Bisping would be a fight id watch .

I wonder if Anderson would do the superfight with Jones in Brazil as his retirement fight.
