Oh come on guys, Joe Silva is the best booker in the business. Irvin is coming off of so amazing highlight reel knockouts than can give fodder to the promotion team.. If Anderson beats a KO artist in convincing fashion at a weightclass above, it adds that much more credibility to his rep, and really doesn't damage the standings at 205. I think its an ingenious match up personally.
You do realize that Irvin is one of the top strikers if not the best striker in the LHW devision don't you? This is a test for Silva and he wont have the same reach hes used to fighting at MW. I personally think this is going to be a war!
Also its not like many people wanted to face him.
No way is Irvin even close to being the best striker in the division, but you and I are basically in agreement here, not sure if you realized that. Irvin is a GOOD match choice for Anderson because of his recent rep as a KO artist, but if he does lose, it won't hurt the standings of the division much.
