PORTLAND, Ore. – While many observers felt Saurday's UFC 102 contest between Nate Marquardt (29-8-2 MMA, 8-2 UFC) and Demian Maia (10-1 MMA, 5-1 UFC) was an unofficial No. 1 contender contest, the next challenger for middleweight champ Anderson Silva (25-4 MMA, 10-0 UFC) remains unclear.

Marquardt impressively dispatched of Maia in just 21 seconds, picking up the Portland, Ore., event's "Knockout of the Night" in the process.

But following the event, UFC president Dana White wasn't quite ready to schedule Marquardt vs. Silva II, and Silva's camp told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that they feel the organization should go in a different direction.

i made a thread for this asking the same question shortly after the Marquart fight i guess the Silva camp agree with me

well i think the Silva camp have a point Silva already beat these two decisively why should he have to fight BOTH of them again, plus we haven't seen Dan and Nate fight each other i think it would be a more competitive fight then Vs Silva anyway

I agree with the silva camp, hendo vs. marquardt is a great matchup that hasn't happened yet. I don't care what silva is trying to dictate, hopefully he fights another fight at a higher weight class and then takes on the winner, make it happen, neither guy took any damage in their last fight so they could both fight tomorrow if they wanted.

Screw this, what does Anderson think he can call the shots now? lol

Setting up that matchup directly eliminates a top contender...so after Hendo or Marquardt fight Anderson, who would be next? Not a good idea...just let Hendo have his shot. He beat Franklin and Bisping who were probably higher up on the ladder than Maia and Gouveia for Nate.

I totally agree to this. Hell even if Anderson vacates the title these two should go at it for the title as they are definitely the most deserving.

Im getting pretty tired of Anderson and this comes from a huge Spider fan. A lot of people have said hes changed a lot and you can see it in him. Obviously ive never known him but from his start in Pride and now he seems different. Personally i think Hendo deserves a shot, hes earned it imo. He didnt get completely killed by Anderson, afterall he convincingly won the first round against Spider and who else has done that?? He got complacent but i feel he has the tools to put Anderson on his back and keep him there round after round if he stuck to the gameplan.
Still though, Hendo vs Nate would be a good scrap.

Silva should just vacate at 185 if he's going to behave so childishly. Henderson/Marquardt for the vacant belt is the best fight 185 has to offer right now.

Hendo needs to get a shot immediately. He deserves it....Id like to see that go down in November. Then early 2010 Nate gets his shot.... Or Silva should just vacate that belt and move up and let Hendo and Nate go head to head at years end.

This would actually set things up perfectly for a run in the LHW division.......I agree with Anderson's camp......have them fight for the #1 contender spot and if Anderson beats the winner then make a run in the LHW division because he wont have much else to prove and MW.........

Does everyone not remeber Anderson has beat both these guys already.......I would rather see him make a run at LHW then fight both these guys again.......

acting childishly? cut it out. the guy is 10-0 and already finished both of those guys inside 10 minutes and beaten a former 205 pound champ in his last fight. He has earned the right to make such a suggestion.

personally he should do what ever he wants to he has earned it, Boxers get to choose who they fight why not mma fighters there grown adults they don't need to be told what to do. yeah and i would have said the same thing as andersons camp cause it makes sense instead of a bunch of rematches. make the 2 losers fight for the title shot

Is anyone else getting sick of Anderson Silva? Hendo gets the shot. Nate can fight the winner. Done. Everyone is happy.

From a guy who says he wants to fight every 2-3 months, why would he want to wait 6 months for a winner of Nate/Hendo, all while all but calling out Frank Mir.

Andy is really starting to piss me off with his shenanigans. Sh*t or get off the pot, as my grandpa would say.

What's the point, when he has stated time after time that he does not want to fight Lyoto. I'd rather see him keep dominating the MW division....UFC's MW division has gotten a lot better in recent years. And no, I did not forget they both fought him already but at the same time they are both at the top of the list and should not be denied a shot just because they already fought.
