There is no 'Tim Boetsch' option on the poll?

Weidman/Munoz winner. They probably won't get the shot but that's who actually deserves it imo.

Anderson Silva vs Rashad Evans sounds pretty good to me.
Book it, UFC.

Definitely not retirement. They may not be the best challengers for Silva, but that is what the UFC can offer. There are plenty of decent fights left for Silva. Munoz is my pick. Bispng, Belcher, Lombard are all good matchups as well.

I went to Ufc 90 and the title fight left a bad taste in my mouth not just the event but city as well

Last night silva erased that memory. I wanted to see a silva win. Last night he saved a Shit card

Have him face lombard next. Brazil!!!!

I think they should just get on board with having Korea make a Silva clone. It's the only hope for an opponent to defeat him.

He'll just plow through the rest of the guys on this list, ticking off wins as he goes. It doesn't really matter who is next - they'll all end up in the Spider's web at some point.

I did put Tim Boetsch as a option but changed it to Retirement because i wanted to see people's reaction if Andy Silva should retire or not. I dont want him to at all, hes my fav fighter along with GSP. With all this hype going on with Lombard, i wanna see what hes made of and fight Silva. The winner of Munoz/Weidman should fight the winner of Bisping/Belcher...The winner of the fight should get a shot after Lombard.

Anderson is 15-0 in the UFC and of those 15 fights only 2 went to decision and to top it off 11 of those fights have been title defenses. He is hands down the best fighter in MMA right now and most likely the best fighter ever. I don't know why anyone would want him to retire right now.

I want to see Chael go at him again.

Flame away.



However the only way I see that happening is if someone else takes the belt and then sonnen takes the belt and then Anderson comes to get it again


Bisping would be a fight id watch .

I wonder if Anderson would do the superfight with Jones in Brazil as his retirement fight.
