Anderson Silva has hinted at an early retirement when his contract with the UFC is over.
He has five fights left until his contract runs out. And I think that Dana should give him the 5 hardest fights of his life.
Who should be his five opponents?

I think that he should fight for the title last(rashad,forrest)
that way he either retires as champ, or he wont retire.

if Anderson fights Cung Le, will they make it standing up only? bc if they dont, Cung Le doesnt deserve to be in there w/ him on the ground

doesn't matter the order

Chuck Liddell
Bisping
205 title holder(probably will be Evans)
Okami
maybe GSP

As a Liddell nuthugger, I don't see why people are so interested to see Liddell -vs- Silva.

The Iceman would get dealt with rather easily, IMO.

1. Shogun or Chuck Lidell (in order)

2. winner of Rashad or Forrest

3. Michael Bisping or Dan Henderson

5. Defends belt (light heavyweight or if he doesn't get it then middleweight) I don't know against who

True,. but Cung Le is a more accomplished wrestler and so the question is whether Silva can put him on the ground if he doesn't want to go there.

Unlike most posters, I prefer to have him fight in the weight class he is best at as much as possible. With that in mind:

1. Okami
2. Le
3. Filho (if he beats Sonnen)
4. Bisping
5. GSP-Alves winner (at MW)

Why is GSP on everyones list, this fight would never happen Gsp would have to go to 185 witch he wont and Silva would never make 170 not only that but that would not be a hard fight for silva. imo

1.) Money talks. If the money is there, you can bet your sweet ass GSP would move up.

2.) I totally disagree about it not being a hard fight for Silva. It would be his toughest fight to date, IMO. By far.

I think this:

Okami
winner of Rampage vs Wanderlei
Cote rematch
Bisping
winner of Rashad vs Forrest

this way he could potentially retire a double champion

chuck
okami
GSP
wandy/page winner
winner of bisping vs hendo or franklin

These are bad and good fights. Jesus and Anderson are great friends and wouldn't fight, Anderson would destroy satan, Rex Quan Do would kill Silva, Fedor would probably lose though be a good fight. The best fight would be between Silva and Bruce Lee, I cant even make a prediction of who would in.

1: hendo again (or Franklin round 3 if he beats Hendo) (MW)
2: Shogun (LHW)
3: GSP (Catch weight of 175-177)
4: LHW title fight
5: Couture (LHW) (if silva wins fight 4 then make it a title fight) (Both fighters retire from the sport regardless of winner)

1. Okami
2. Henderson Rematch
3. Matt Lindland
4. Gegard Mousasi
5. GSP

I didn't put any for lhw because personally I want to see him clean out the mw division to prove he truly is the best at 185 before he retires. One I would like to see at 185 is him vs GSP.

5. Evans

I don't remember so said it but anerson is able to fight at 176-177 no problem.

1. Chucl liddel just so he can retire a legend.

2. Gsp if he wins vs penn.

3. Okami if he wins against lister, the guy definitly deserves a chance at the tittle.

4. Hendo if he wins against Franklin if he looses have bisping fight cote for the #1 spot and give the winner a tittle shot.

5. If Anderson is still champ at MW he should fight whoever has the belt at 205.
