I think he and soares know that weidman is a nightmare matchup. My guess is he is going to use the "he's not a big enough name" excuse to avoid the fight as long as possible and hope weidman loses in the meantime. Phone Post

Maybe. Though i think anderson has earned that. If he wants a big fight, like gsp, i think its fair to pass on weidman for the time being. Phone Post

It's impossible to duck. If a guy keeps winning, eventually he WILL get the title shot. And in Weidman's case, 1-2 more wins gets him the shot, whether Anderson likes it or not.

I might believe this if Anderson has done this in the past but he hasn't and don't think he will. Phone Post

If Sonnen would have beaten Anderson at 148, the winner of Weidman/Munoz would have gotten a title shot against him.

Siva as well as all title holders need to be making at least 2 defenses a year.

I, for one, am glad that the loons have yet another fringe contender to beat the "Anderson will duck this guy" drum over. This routine has in no way become stale or contrived during the last five years. Phone Post

Why doesn't GSP fight Silva? Why doesn't Jon fight JDS? see where i am going here.



Because those are legitimate divisions that constantly have credible challengers. Every 6 months you have a new hot up and comer at 170. If the division was stuck exactly as it was 5 years ago like 185 is I am certain he would have left long ago

 Yeah, you're completely right. I mean it's not like GSP had to face undeserving challengers like Dan Hardy or Koscheck just to avoid rematches....

Your idiotic claim that Anderson must move up and face Jon Jones to be considered elite is the stuff of window lickers around the world.

 y r u guys saying he fights anyone..no clearly he did not want  to fight chael...yes, he said it was because he was disrespectful, but i am guessing getting whipped by him for 4 rounds had something to do with it

he also did not want to fight vitor immediately

i am sure there are others

 it wouldnt be an excuse it would be true

 do you know that the ufc's goal isnt to go after the champion until he loses?

you're acting like everyone should just be lined up single file and get a go at anderson until someone finally catches him

he just finished chael with ease after over a year of buildup. give the man 6months to lay off for goodness sake, and lets see weidman beat a top contender before you go talking all crazy like this.
ummm...munoz was a top contender dummy

Shields came to the division just as the talk peaked of GSP moving up in weight, he beat Shields and the talk resumed and Nick Diaz came. Condit was an up and comer so now he has 2 credible fights in the division, just when it seems like he has it cleaned out we see a new face. Anderson Silva, well... not so much. There is 0 talk of him moving up in a significant title run type of way despite there being no challengers at 185 for some time now

You know what? I tried to be nice about Chael's loss but there are people like the above that still spend their time talking about Anderson getting beat for 4 rounds 2 YEARS AGO.

Chael got fucking crushed. Crushed. First fight choked, second fight CRUSHED. You can talk about the first round where Silva did a Hendo and defended a hardy session of lay-and-pray, but after that Sonnen couldn't buy a takedown. After that he got CRUSHED. Beat down and TKO'd.

All these threads trying to paint Silva as some sort of coward to other people he CRUSHED are borderline retarded. He's not scared of ANY of the guys he either knocked out or choked out. No, he's not afraid of a Henderson rematch, know why? Because he already choked him until he couldn't breath. No, he wasn't afraid of Belfort. Know why? Because he he kicked his head into the front row.

I'm not going to be nice about this shit as long as huggers spend their time celebrating the highlights of a LOSS.

I'm going to tell you the reality. Chael got crushed, Vitor got crushed and Dan got crushed. It's that simple. You can talk your way around it but that's the bottom line.

Silva has never not accepted a fight and Weidman won't be the first. He will simply be another casualty.

Another difference is the fact that GSP virtually cleaned out the division before he even got a title shot, with AS it was a win over Leben and a title shot, after 1 defense he fights Irvin and Cote, if that isn't a sign of a mountain west conference with AS being Boise State I don't know what is. I guess go back to pride fanboy comic book reality pretending how great "prime wanderlei" "prime nog" "prime crocop" and "prime fedor" were. I will continue to live in reality and realize there is something called "degree of difficulty" and not all competition and title runs are created equal

Well Chael did win the first round on everyones score card so I don't see how the word "crushed" can be used. I guess we found out that Chael has an extremely suspect spinning backfist, isn' that all we really found out? I mean, seriously, when you think about it, that is what we found out

No, we found out that Chael got one takedown and couldn't get anything else. Round 2 was spent trying to get a takedown that would never come. That frustration led to some wild standup that was all that needed to end him.

Nice flexibility on your part.
