Wanderlei Silva proved once again on Saturday night that win, lose, or draw he is always going to be involved in exciting fights.

Following UFC 147, UFC President Dana White was asked about that very scenario unfolding, and he shot down the idea of Silva getting the fight with Belfort next.

“(Vitor’s next fight) It will not be against Wanderlei, he just lost tonight. When Vitor heels up, we will see what happens and go from there,” White stated when speaking to Fuel TV following the fights.

It appears that if Silva wants to finish off his long time feud with Belfort, he’s going to have to win at least another fight before the UFC will put that match up together.

I agree. I didn't think what Wanderlei had done recently warranted a fight with Belfort, and I don't see how losing to Franklin does anything to help that. I understand the reasoning for making the fight, but as far as where they stand/stood in the division, I didn't really think it was a good idea.

Bisping is complaining about how 'everyone' is getting rematches, so I say give him this rematch.
