I would love to see Silva lose just to throw everything into chaos. I like Silva but that would be too funny.
Exactly what I was thinking
Dana White would grow a full head of hair just so he could pull it all out if Silva lost a random meaningless fight. Esp with him completely banking on this GSP/Silva superfight next year to save the company after this horrible year
anderson silva is fighting stephan bonnar at 153
glover vs fabio maldonadao
imagine if silva loses
The UFC and Dana White are really losing it lately. I realize they can't do anything about injuries, but making a fight like Silva vs. Bonner is laughable, and the Athletic Commission shouldn't even allow it.
Get Silva used to fighting at LHW with a fight vs a non-contender, then a contender, and assuming he wins those you have the JJ superfight. If that's the plan I like it.
silva's fought LHW's at catchweight. i don't think this fight will be really different. doubt either jones or silva want to fight each other...already on the record for being against that. they have way more to lose than gain in that scenario. i think gsp vs. silva is more likely (though not the one i'd rather see)
Couple of things, one silva has fought much better lhws then Stephan bonnar. That serves no purpose to get him used to the weight.
As for jones vs silva as much as I love and respect silva, I just don't see how that fight is competitive. I know it's not a super fight anymore because he's no longer champ but I'd love to see silva vs a healthy rua though
