Just looking at future match ups for anderson silva, and feel free to argue with me but i really don't see anyone he SHOULD lose to, now there are wierd things that happen and people lose to someone that they really shouldnt (gsp loosing to matt serra) but i don't really see anyone he should loose to. he has for the most part cleaned out the MW division, i would like to see Bisping fight silva if he beats Leben. i think that would be a good fight but i see anderson silva winning. i think he beats most at heavy weight too. there has been rumor talk of a anderson silva Gsp fight at a catch weight. i for one think that would be one of the greatest fights, but i still think i have to go with silva on that one. so who is the first to beat him,(assuming he keeps jumping around in weight) Liddell, Wandy, Hendo.....those are a few that kind of make sense, but who does it??

Patrick Cote has no chance. Maybe Chuck if they fight in December.

The only man who can beat Spider Silva is.....Spider Silva.


I don't think anyone at MW would beat him. I think he'd beat Hendo again and I truly think he would dismantle Wandy. He would pick him apart.

At Light Heavy.

Forrest - May have a chance but a small one.

Thiago Silva - No.

Machida - Training partners, wont happen.

Liddell - I dont think he'd be landing any bombs on the elusive Spider. But I could be wrong. This would be a tough fight for him.

Rashad - I think Rashad would get mamed.

the person with the best chance at MW is definitly Dan Henderson. If Silva moves up to LHW every now and then his biggest threats are probably the top guys like Rampage, Wanderlei, Forrest, Chuck, and Machida (that fight wouldn't happen anyway) but we could also see Wanderlei drop to 185 so i think there is 2 decent threats right there in Hendo and Wandy. i know Hendo already fought him but i think given a second chance he'd make it a much better fight. we'll just have to wait and see.

Bisping would take a beatingggg in that fight. Haha. I think the winner of the Bisping vs Leben will be put right in line for a title shot after Okami because really who else is there to give it to.

I'm pretty sure Dan Henderson vs Anderson Silva will be a trilogy. Hendo wins the second but the third one will be though to call. I'll feel bad for the not top-contender guys at MW if Anderson loses and get one or two fights before another shot, poor guys who get matched against him.

But as it is right now....

A Silva beats Cote and then get Okami....

Henderson beats Palhares very convincingly and get Mardquart/Kampmann winner..... then A. Silva?

Maia gets Leites/Goran winner then Almeida(if he wins) then wait for shot? I see Maia as the Machida of MW, winning but far from title due to marketing.

I believe there is no one in the middle weight division that has what it takes to beat anderson.Dan has the most chance there and i believe he will lose in a rematch .Now at light heavy i believe a few different people could beat him. I think Wanderlei , Chuck , and Quinton have the ability to beat him. For the main part i dont think many people in mma have what it takes to beat anderson he is just to skilled in all aspects of the sport.

Cote has no chance of beating anderson silva, maybe henderson if theres a rematch, at light heavyweight i think forrest may have a chance, no one thought forrest had a chance against rampage or Rua and look at the outcome.

Nobody, I think he would do pretty well against guys like Rampage and Forrest, whom despite being bigger, are not nearly as technical or dedicated to training.

I think Yushin Okami has the best chance.

My honest opinion is that he CAN hold both MW and LH belts and never be beaten maybe if he faces someone who can submit him possibly Maia (since his standup is ever improving) Wand, Shogun, Machida and Hendo imho are the only ones who COULD beat him at this point.

One things for sure he will go down as the greatest MW of all time guarenteed.
