It looks like Anderson Silva’s next fight will be at light heavyweight against Keith Jardine. If Anderson Silva had beaten Thales Leites in exciting fashion, it would have been Demian Maia that was assured of the next shot at Silva’s belt.

Jardine will be an interesting match up for Anderson.
I would say Anderson will take him, but it's impossible to ever count Jardine out of a fight.


I say Anderson takes this between round 1 and 2,though Jardine might make it an intersting fight.

Maia and Marquardt I think will go to maia personaly.

Atleast we know Jardine will bring it! If the fight happens.

I think Marquardt stomps Maia, tko win.

Props to jardine for taking tough fights all the time.

Great match ups, im exited to see silva at LHW, Jardine wont be backing away either. Nate vs maia will be a good fight too, I say nate takes itl.

Great! Now they're gonna tie up the Middleweight title. What if he wins? Then he has to either keep fighting LHW or drop back down to MW. If he is going to be a LHW they should vacate the MW title and let him go for it, not keep bouncing back and forth and tying up the belt.

I dont know about this.

i love jardine vs silva, jardine always makes the fights more interesting then you think they will be, and maybe silva will take this as a serious fight that could place him in title contention at 205

maia vs marqaurdt will definitely produce a number one contender but bisping and hendo are also fighting for a shot at silva

silva vs jardine will make us wait a long time for silva vs hendo/bisp wich makes maia/marquardt wait forever and plus yushin okami will beat miller and still have a case for a title shot

thats 3 contenders and silva's next fight will be at 205 = one long wait

Okami just gets no respect.


Maia vs. marquardt is going to be an amazing fight. I like Anderson to beat Jardine via unanimous and pretty boring decision. I mean Jardine doesn't like to initiate contact against good strikers and Anderson is impeccable but he doesn't want to initiate anymore so we could see another snoozfest.

I also like Marquardt to beat Maia via 3rd TKO.

I don't think Bisping vs Henderson is for a title sahot.

I think if Maia wins he gets firsat shot...if Nate wins and so does Bisping...I bet Bisping gets the shot.

If Henderson and Nate win...they might give the shot to Okami if he wins.

I don't think the MW belt will be on hold for too long...it will be awhile but they will have it on the line by years end for sure.

well considering henderson and marquardt have already had their shot at the title, you could make the argument that they should have to make it through a few more fighters to really state their case. Lets keep in mind that leites got the shot because we felt that we 'needed' a contender. Look at who he beat to get that shot.. 5 in a row with wins over McFederies, Marquardt, and Jensen. Why are we rushing guys like bisping, henderson, okami, and maia into title shots? The only one of that list who has a legitimate argument for a title shot would be henderson IF he beats bisping. If bisping wins... ok, he has a win over a top contender, but lets see if he can get another. Okami has yet to beat a top10 let alone a top5. And Maia has put together a streak about as impressive as Leites.. so lets not see a repeat. Maybe the key to giving Anderson a worthy opponent is to give him a fight with a contender who has REALLY proven himself.. the kinda guy who has beaten more than 1 top contender. Why are we rushing these guys into title contention when we could have a few more awesome number1 contender matchups? If marquardt beats maia and henderson beats bisping, match them up for a number1 contendership match or something.. there are a lot of great fights in the middle weight division right now and we need to not rush guys into title contention with silva. Silva going up a weight class right now is a great idea, especially if Machida doesn't take the title.

interesting....

Jardine will bring it for sure, but I don't think he will be really aggressive. He'll show up with a good gameplan and watch for the counters, probably like he did vs. Chuck. It is a better match-up than Thales no question, but so was Cote and remember how that fight was. The best thing about this match-up is that it'll be a 3rounder, so it could be a must-engage situation for either one in the later rounds and get a KO there.

With a win over Marquardt they will have to give Maia a title shot!!!!!

Jardine has the heart of a pitbull that guy never takes easy fights!!!!!!

they are just setting up the winner of Maia Vs Nate to fight Anderson for the title next.........Who else would you rather see him fight? I would definately rather see him fighting at LHW then fight another undeserving MW......
