After years of dominating the UFC middleweight division, champ Anderson Silva doesn’t seem to have the interest in continually proving to be the king of the 185 pounders. During a recent interview with Guilherme Cruz of Tatame Magazine, Silva started off on the topic of Chris Weidman’s denial of a title fight in 2012; then veering off into talks of vacating the title in order to take on new challenges. Superfight anyone?

========================

Does that mean Boetsch/Wiedman would be for the title?

Agreed. However, I would like to see Weidman get a crack down the road. Other than that, not many others tickle my fancy.

There are so many interesting fights for Silva at 205.

Is this his Plan B since GSP still doesn't seem very interested?

I wish the media would ignore Anderson Silva's maybes. I remember he want's to fight for years, that he wants to move to heavyweight, etc etc.

He can duck Weidman all he wants..... either way he's posturing for a shot against Vitor if Vitor wins.... I could definitely see Silva beating most heavyweights as they would be much slower but not able to handle Andersons punches and footwork....

Anderson would be a killer against Uber and possibly Cain

If he vacated (he won't) I would assume the winner of Boetsch/Weidman would face the winner of Stann/Bisping for the title.

Some people never learn.

I'm sure Chael P will spinning backfist Anderson back to 185 if he dare try 205

I don't mind him staying at 205 as long as 2 things happen

1) he vacates the MW belt
2) fights Jones

Sounds like someone is scared of Weidman if you ask me seems like Anderson is doing everything he can to avoid having to fight him..... I said it ages ago Anderson will vacate the belt before fighting Weidman because he will lose and he wants to go out on top.
