-Franklin Mcniel on the ESPN MMA Live had breaking news. First that Wanderlei Silva has confirmed that he will move down to 185 looking for a fight in June or July.

- Also he mentioned if BJ Penn wins he will have his choice whether to fight Thiago Alves ( #1 contender WW). or Kenny Florian ( # 1 contender LW)

This has been rumored for a while now and I am glad to hear it is true. i would like to see him fight Belcher, but i bet his first fight is with a guy similar to his style. Maybe Leben? He has been off since his loss to Bisping.

I hope BJ picks to fight Florian personally....

As for the Wandy announcement, I think its great. Now would be a perfect time for him to reinvent himself and a fight with Cote, Leben, Irvin (who is also at 185 now), Bisping, would all be awesome.

Man, Wanderlei vs Leben would be epic. I'm not sure how long Leben has left on his steroid suspension, though.

Damn right, and this is great news of Wand dropping down. BJ should destroy Florian first.

Leben was suspended for nine monthes in October. he should be ready to go by July. I really hope a figth between Wandy and Leben arises

Wow thats a fight that i never thaught about until you mentioned it. That would be a great fight. Wow leben has a granite chin, it would get rocked repeatedly in my opinion. I think he could KO Wandy a lot easier than Wandy could KO him though. I think Wandy might win it with the clinch repeated knees.
