"I did have a gameplan and some thing that were gonna be fun. We're still gonna do it, just not the way I was gonna do it before. Things are gonna change. I love it when guys come out, and they're claiming that they want a shot at the title, they wanna be a world champion, and they come out, and they win convincingly. You can't always do it. It doesn't always happen, but the performance that I saw tonight, honestly?

Even though Boetsch won, and Boetsch is this incredible underdog that came up out of nowhere, now beating Okami and beating Lombard -- this guy is gonna be ranked in a serious position now. So, good for him. He's earned it. He deserves it, but I'm looking for guys like Weidman. Weidman comes out and destroys the number two, number three guy in the world and is ready to fight anybody, anytime, anywhere. He took the Demian Maia fight on short notice and cut 30 pounds to get ready for it, and I was looking at this thing, and every fight can't be the fight you expect it to be, but that was nothing I expected."

I know this is wishful thinking, but do I smell a mini- tournament?

Sounds like Dana is pretty desperate for another American champion. Weidman done a fantastic job against Munoz but has all his fights been that way? it's hard who to pick a challenger to put in there with the Best fighter in the UFC but it might just be a case of giving AS a fight belcher/bisping/stann/Munoz/Weidman/ would all be fights I would watch. IMO line them up an get what entertainment you can from AS while you still can. It's going to be a long time before we see anyone as good as him in the UFC.. Phone Post

Way too early for Weidman, I think he'd be better off taking another fight or two just to progress that much farther as a fighter.

Anderson..Should go do Superfights.


Against top competition at LHW...Anderson already proved he can go to LHW.

 Anderson should go to 205 for a last superfight or two -- or just take the GSP fight --  and the wide-open MW division should have a tournament.

Too bad UFC doesn't have all that talent under them. Oh, wait a minute, they do. But for some reason, that doesn't look "appetizing".

Personally, Bisping has a very good chance against Silva. People don't like him, but he is a damn good fighter. I don't know why Dana don't make that fight.

Bumby that's exactly how I see it, people are not thinking make this fight make that fight because they want to see a good fight they are asking for Lhw fights because they want to see AS LOSE plain an simple. It's not AS fault he makes the division look so weak if he wasn't around the belt would be changing hands regularly IMO. As I've said line them up an lets hope to see a competitive challenger on the way. Phone Post

How many more fights are on Anderson's contract? If the next fight could be his last, I say do a tourney with the winner getting the last chance to dethrone the champ.
