I respect your opinion but dana wants to give him a title shot at light heavy if lyoto wasnt a good friend to anderson he would be fighting for the title , also he destroyed a top 3 lhw in forrest griffin who was also former lhw champ in a way no other lhw fighter has done before that deserves a title shot in my books , and for the heavy weight division ive only suggested this beacuse silva is planning to retire soon why not test his skills to the limit hes no ordinary champion you never know in the heavy weight division he might just be too fast and skillfull and they might not be able to get near him wanderlai silva stepped to up heavy weight in pride and won a fight or 2 outsized by everyone i just think in his last few fights he shouldnt be fighting tomato cans to him , why not make his last fights all super fights and go out with a BANG!!!!
really? griffin a top 3 lhw? not trying to put u down or anything but griffin is most certaintly not a top 3 lhw. but should be in the top ten. i would be extremely interested in a shogun sliva matchup (top 3 lhw) but the only way i think this will happen is if shogun loses to machida in the rematch. silva has said he wont even fight for the belt at lhw to not intefere with machida so im assuming if shogun loses he very well could fight silva.
i would like to silva in the hw division against some lesser competition ( by lesser competition i mean not a top ten guy)before i could make a judgement about him continuing in that division or not. maybe give him pat barry to see where he stands in the division. barry would be a tough challenge but not like fighting a mir or dos santos. let him test the waters before he goes in the deep end.
