Mayhem wants Silva after Bisping


"I've got another guy on the radar: the guy with the damn strap, Anderson Silva," Miller told the crowd at this past weekend's UFC Fan Expo Houston 2011. "He's the best fighter in the world, and I want to stick my nose right to his nose and see what happens."

First, though, the former "Bully Beatdown" has a bit of business to handle, and he's ready to put his British counterpart to sleep.

"I would prefer [the rear-naked choke] because it's just so intimate when you get a rear-naked choke on somebody," Miller said when asked how he'd like to finish the Dec. 3 contest, which headlines The Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale in Las Vegas. "You're behind them, and you're like, 'Yeah, I'm going to whisper a lullaby in your ear.' To me, that's awesome."

But now, Miller has returned to the world's largest MMA promotion, and he's ready to challenge Silva, a man with 14-straight octagon wins and widely considered the world's best pound-for-pound fighter.

"I think he's a man," Miller said. "He bleeds the same blood that we do. If you put me in front of the champion, I'll be the champion. Just let me knock out the bloody wanker first."

Mayhem is an obnoxius yank wanker with no stand up skills, Bisping will kick that fuckers teeth down his throat.

Some think that Bisping is next in line for a title shot, so n that respect, if he loses to Miller, wouldn't Miller be next in line?That would bump miller to the top ten, and the only guy to not yet get a title shot.At the same time I want to see another top ten win. If he does it, he would sell the fight and be able to be a good ambassador for the sport as I get the impression he enjoys the media thing, and he is good at it.

 Everyone wants some Silva.....They need to earn it first though. Silva's on a 14 fight win streak in the UFC....that's unheard of and I don't think any other fighter has ever achieved that status.....He deserves to chill a little bit while these contenders fight each other for the number 1 spot.

He's not going to beat Bisping so it doesn't matter

title shots get handed out on a whim in the UFC, why shouldn't they let Mayhem get one? if Roid Sonnen is going to get a title shot for cheating and committing bank fraud, why shouldn't Mayhem get one?

Congrats! I have now lost all respect for this forum thanks to the retarded posters on this thread!The reaction to bispings claim to want to try Anderson was boarder line fighter bashing.But here we are with posters actually taking mayhems chances seriously.I know the UKTT can be annoying and at times delusional but some US fans are clearly no smarter.Mayhem is a clown and would most likely find a way to fare worse than Leben did against Silva should Dana be sadistic enough to allow him into a locked cage with the champ.Besides, this topic is useless as he will get owned by bisping anyway, and I do not say this because I am British, but because Miller is another can being fed to Mike due to Zuffa's lack of respect for British mma fans. Some of us can tell a good fighter from a clearly average one.Miller would lose to most UFC MW's as he has no quality wins at 185 and should be fighting at 170 in the UFC.This is a guy who got his ass handed to him by a past-prime Frank Trigg remember....?

beating tim kennedy 4 or 5 years ago and beating an obnoxious brit with no ground skills, when thats your specialty, qualifies you for a title shot at 185? thats a slap in the face to every 185er that actually works hard and wins fights
