I haven't been impressed with Anderson in the UFC since his first few fights namely: Leben, Franklin and Henderson, but everyother fight he has expected fighters to come to him adn get battered just to make him look good. In my opinion it is the champions responsibility to make the fight - I.E: the Franklin bout - he came forward and ultimatley ended losing but he still went for it. Henderson although the challenger had the heart of a champion and went for it. But what next for him, because i think he doesn't deserve to dictate to Dana and the UFC and make a match with GSP, especially if GSP has to move up a weight. So your looking at a couple of probable options and then some long shots :

1) GSP at welterweight - don't think Anderson deserves this fight.
2) Chael Sonnen at Middleweight - this or belfort would cause him problems
3) Vitor Belfort at Middleweight
4) Wanderlei at Middleweight - the rivarly would always be there, and is Anderson dropped his guard and invited in Wanderlei he would wake up in hospital.
4) Randy Cotoure - Randy is on a roll at the minute, Randy would force him into the trenches.
5) Frank Mir - Anderson talks about heavyweight, so force him in with a fighter who needs a big comeback.
6) Junior Dos Santos/Cheick Congo - Another potential heavyweight bout, with a fighter who comes forward

1) GSP at WW is a bad idea for Ando.. He's going to be drained and I think GSP beats him at WW.
2) Agree a a strong wrestler would give Ando problems though I'd still favor Silva here
3) Vitor would have been a great fight. Hopefully this still gets made. Silva will have his hands full
4) Randy Couture got out struck by a past prime Nog. We all saw what Chuck did to Randy. Silva would do it 10 times worse. I think Randy would get beat down badly here.
5 & 6) Any top HW right now is going to give Silva problems based on size but I wouldn't count him out. Silva's speed and reflexes would give any of those guys major fits. I think it's a toss up.

Boring Anderson that has finished 10 of his last 12 fights? That guy? Failing to see that the 2 fights he didnt finish where against Brazillian butt floppers are you? If I where Anderson I'd do the same thing in the next fight just to say **** you to Dana White....

Anderson Silva is the Floyd Mayweather of MMA... because he dominates without taking punishment he's considered, "boring"

I don't really get the extra criticism for Anderson,


the fight against Maia was about as entertaining as GSP vs Hardy

GSP does the same thing and he's considered "boring" as well. Why is that?

Again showing favoritism to strikers.

Anyway. Anderson has had 3 boring performances this isn't the first time. He spoiled the UFC debut in the middle east with his juvenile behavior.

I don't know what's next for him, I just hope he loses, as I've been hoping for while now.

if I was Dana, I would strip him of the MW title and put him in the LHW division, and if he puts on 1 boring performance in that division, I would throw him into the HW division, like a lamb being fed to the wolves.

There really is no other solution to all this.

Maybe he will get a shot at roy jones next.

just read this article http://www.fighters.com/04/11/are-ufc-champ-anderson-silvas-title-defense-antics-on-purpose

that brings up the idea that silva is just trying to piss white off to the point where he lets silva vacate his belt since as the article mentions silvas contract wont let silva vacate the title and as long as he holds the title white tells silva who he will and wont fight and of course danas not going to let silva fight a boxer under boxing rules.

Man, I don't understand but at least it puts a smile on my face. To see people hate Silva, makes me smile.

Dana just needs to stop giving Silva, butt floppers as opponents. I basically agree with Kaps. If they give him another butt flopper, just pull the same stunt and say **** you to Dana.

Agree and disagree, the fact is, that is whats in the middleweight division right now. The only interesting fights there were, the rematch with Hendo and Belfort. The others are too one dimensional to pose a threat. Though IMO Silva could've just said no to fight Maia, seeing as he was a replacement and not the proper contender for the title, he wasn't going to be the first fighter to decline a fight. Hes the one who agrees to these fights, and even when he goes up in weight he knows which guys to say yes too, I mean c'mon, James Irvin, seriously. If thats the real reason he does this then he should've just said no, after all, the UFC is selling him as the best P4P he can say no is he wishes.

Yeah but you know how Dana gets. It's like no one can say no to him, or they are afraid to. Last person to do something the UFC(dana/fertitas) didn't particularly like, fights in Bellator(sp?) now. They try to freeze people out and everything. lol

He shouldn't have too. GSP should step like every true warrior does = Silva / GSP / Henderson
