Silva doesn't want Weidman, maybe Cung Le?


Ed Soares, who serves as the manger and interpreter to the champion, tells Cage Fanatic he doesn't know who is next for Silva, he just wants it to be someone who is well known by fans and can draw eyeballs, naming former Strikeforce champion Cung Le as a potential opponent.

His words:

"(Silva's next fight) is still up in the air man, we don't know who that is, you know, unfortunately Bisping lost which was a big thing but, you know, I'm not too sure. I'm not too sure who could be next, I mean there's a few names out there but I think nothing really stable. There's been a few guys who - you know we want to fight someone who has a little bit of a name, someone that has as big of a name as possible and that's on a winning record or a winning run right now. So, I mean right now it seems like most of the guys with names have had losses very recently. So, when I think about it, like the only thing that comes to mind and I don't even know if that would be a possible fight is, you know, like Cung Le is coming off of three wins or something like that where he's got a little bit of a name, but I mean it's really hard in that division because it's so evenly matched all the opponents on any given day one of those guys can beat each other, so you know, once again whoever the UFC decided we're in."

Learn to read.Lazer- "Wins Vs both a number 3 and number 6 is just as good as most of AS's opponents when defending if not better."Lutter was was 9-3, and had 0 top ten wins.Marquardt had one fight in 2007 to earn his shot against Silva by beating Dean Lister.Cote had no top 10 wins at all. He earned his shot by beating Almeida who had 2 fights in 4 years.Leites got his shot by beating Marquardt by point deduction.Maia earned his shot by getting KOed by Marquardt and then beating Jim MillerBelfort had no fights at 185. He had not beaten a top fighter since 2004 (Randy via cut)Weidman may forfeit his top 10's if AS does as well. As it is my post stands as correct 100 percent.Further the is NO logical justification AT ALL in Rockhold over Weidman that anyone I saw posted.

Lol. U should also send him a google trends analysis which basically shows that Chris gets 2x the number of google searches that Luke gets.

No he's the GOAT but still has to defend the 185 belt vs the #1 contender....     Otherwise let him go make movies with Sensei Seagel

you dont truly beleive that do you? maia and a completely out of shape munoz are equal if not better competition than dan henderson, prime rich franklin, okami (who beat inshape munoz then got school by silva on how to eat a jab), belfort, sonnen and theres about 10 more who were in the top 10 when they fought silva some are still there now and he schooled pretty much all of them.
