Anderson needs a. No need to fight somone on short notice, just to prove your the man. He has proven it time and time again. Give him some time to relax and bring him back for a good fight. Maybe Bisping?!?!?

How about at 205 lbs Anderson Silva vs Luis 'Banha' Cane at UFC 92 ? That's something I'd love to see. Mostly cuz I'll be at that card but it would round out the year end show rather nicely. I think this fight might be a little risky for Silva. For some reason too I remember reading somewhere there's some bad blood between these two from years ago when Anderson was with Chute Boxe.

Every Silva thread I will say the same thing. Expect the QUOTE P4P Champ to get Gimme fights for the rest of his career. Remember, He has only fought two legit Contenders. Hendo and Franklin. all others were a joke. Lutter, Leben, Marquart, Cote were all undeserving of there shots at A Silva.

A guy goes on a 3 fight W streak and u get a chance to fight Silva. Thats a joke. That meens Leites is next, and we all know he has no chance.

He should be fighting TOP guys. but with that said i understand MW division has nothing left. But comon. Even at LHW he is gonna get washed up fighters like Irvin and soon to be Chuck.

If A Silva beats GSP, Forrest, Rampage, Wandy, or even Luiz Cane. I will give him some more respect.

and Until he fights a striker, he is still not P4P champ in my eyes.



Just remember, Chuck was thought to be P4P champ because he finished all his opponents for 5 years, but NONE were strikers. This is the same case.

This shows me that he is in no way ready to retire.....some guy goes on a streak a year or two after he does and Andy is going to want to make a come back....watch.

i think they should offer a fight to bisping for the next pay per view. if he really wants his shot here is a good place to get it. they are both in shape and neither one really took any damage at thier last fight.

I respect that he wants to fight again so soon.

Really, though.. he has no one to blame but himself for his performance. He should have taken the fight seriously and crushed his opponent. The fans don't care if he goes 3 rounds or 3 seconds. They just want to see fighters fight at their best ability. If that means a 3 second KO highlight then perfect!

People can say all day long that it was a "Machida performance," but even Machida throws more shots than Anderson did. He needs to get over himself IMO and it sounds like with this next fight he may plan on doing just that. I've always thought he has an inner-cockiness that could lead to his detriment, only I didn't realize it would be amongst the fans and not in the form of a loss. The fans hating on him is probably a lot worse for him. Sorry to hear that he's going through this but again.. he has no one but himself to blame.

This is incredible, Anderson goes to the 3rd round without the first 2 rounds being filled with fireworks and all of a sudden he's boring and needs to redeem himself?

What the f*** is this? Just because all his other fights have been great to watch it doesn't mean this one should be to, yes i wish it was more exciting but not all of his fights can be that way, what if it was his gameplan to feel Cote out for the first couple of rounds and finish him off later on?

Unbelieveable.

Did someone really suggest Houston Alexander?

Sorry, but Houston would tapout on his way to the cage.

To tell you the truth he only has 5 fights left on his contract and i think he wants to go threw them rather quickly and thats the reason he's acting like he was "displeased and want to show people whats up" Silva we already know whats up he needs to chill out for a hot day

And this is my problem with them saying all along that Silva is the #1 P4P fighter in the world. Don't make that claim repeatedly (which they have over the last several months) and then showcase this fighter in a fight in which its hard to tell if he even cares or not. Just like EliteXC hyped the hell out of Kimbo and as soon as he didn't produce they tanked the UFC hyped Anderson and if he doesn't produce the backlash is huge. (UFC won't tank, but still.. you're seeing a huge backlash)

Anderson always feels out his opponents in the first couple minutes before he attacks. The gameplan from Cote's corner was to keep coming with something different and change up the footwork to confuse him. If you base fights on Octagon control and aggression (which are two criteria for judging in the UFC) then one can argue Cote controlled a major portion of the fight.

Again, I go back to an argument I constantly bring up- Effort to finish. It NEEDS to be a criteria like it was in Pride for judging so that you avoid this kind of stuff and these arguments are moot. The judging is so wishy-washy with Octagon control and aggression that if you leverage much of your judging on effort to finish you don't have to worry about that stuff. Case in point if you had been judging with effort to finish as main criteria in that fight Cote would have been far ahead on the cards and Anderson would have been forced into action.
