Who is next for Anderson Silva?
“When Alexander the Great saw the breadth of his domain, he wept for there were no more worlds to conquer.” -Plutarch
"I honestly don’t know," said White.
GSP has said the move up to 185 would be permanent. But the French Canadian has his hands full at 170, and likely will for a while.
Last night Jon Jones summed up a Superfight at 205 on Twitter. "I guess Anderson said he had no interest in fighting me at tonight's press conference," said Jones. "I feel the same way about him. Nothing but respect."
Mark Munoz and Chris Weidman fight in a five-round main event at UFC on Fuel TV 4, on July 11. Should one show great dominance, excitment would rise.
Olympic Judoke Hector Lombard, who has not lost in his last 25 fights, meets Tim Boetsch at UFC 149 on July 21. Should Lombard continue to crush, kill, and destroy, the calls for a Silva fight will become deafening.
Anderson Silva says he wants to fight for another ten years; if that happens, there is time enough for the world's fastest growing sport to throw up a fighter that could eclipse even the excitment shown for Saturday's rematch.
For now, perhaps the best thing to do is forget the future, and simply enjoy the greatness of the sport's best fighter.
