It sounds like some of the criticism is starting to hit home for Anderson Silva. UFC president Dana White told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that Silva wants to get right back on the horse:

"He's flipping out. He wants to fight again, like, on Nov. 15. He's (upset) about his performance and he wants to fight again immediately."

A Silva appearance on Nov. 15 is highly unlikely. There's no one of any quality who would take a Silva fight on three weeks notice for UFC 91. The following UFC cards (UFC 92 & 94) are completely stacked so where would a Silva fight fit in? UFC 93 in Dublin could use some beefing up. Right now the main event is Rich Franklin v. Dan Henderson and the second fight is Shogun Rua and Mark Coleman.

The UFC should make a fight for Silva at 205. Who should the next victim be? Dana White told Yahoo! Sports on Saturday that he feels sorry for the next guy who fights the 'disrespected' Silva. White had little response to a question about matching up Chuck Liddell and Silva in London in February. That matchup does have huge sizzle and all parties involved may feel some pressure to repair the image of both Liddell and Silva with a superfight.

I've gotta believe that there is someone out there (not a contender mind you) who is thinking it would be a great career move to take that fight on short notice and try to make a name for themselves. Even in losing would bring some great name recognition for stepping up on three weeks to take a shot at the best P4P fighter in the world.

But there's not a chance in hell the UFC lets Silva fight again that soon. With all of that retirement talk recently, they won't be wasting a single one of Silva's remaining fights. They'd be one fight closer to potentially losing a top fighter, and they'd have nothing to show in return for the fight.

I say let Silva stoke that fire for a while, his next opponent will be in for a real treat.

That would be an interesting match-up if they both throw hands

It would be a James Irvin repeat and a waste of one of Silva's apparently last fights.

I'd hate to be the next person to step in the cage against Silva. He's going to want to redeem himself and prove himself (not that he really has to). But he does need to mend some fences and alot of people, including myself, were disapointed in his fight with Cote. He spent way too much time doing nothing. I don't blame someone for being cautious, but that was just too much. When he did strike, he looked great and inflicted some good damage. I wish he was on the next card. It's not like he took any damage, and he's already in shape. If I were a MW or LHW in the UFC, I would jump at the chance, as would most fighters, I would think. I think they could find a legitimate fighter, probably at LHW, who would fight Silva on just three weeks notice.

Silva need to relax, no need to feed him with a can just to show that he is still a beast.

Next time he will just have to come to fight that's all.

I really like that Anderson is responsive to the fan's displeasure with the fight. I love this guy's attitude!

I wish they could get him at UFC 91 because aide from Brock vs Randy the rest of the card is really weak. It actually kind of pains me to pay $50 bucks for this PPV.

You would think someone in the MW division would want to step up and get a crack at the champ. I mean Thiago didn't have a problem getting an opponent. I'd like to see Thales Leites or Nate Marquardt step up.
