“I’d love to see Anderson at 205,” said White at the UFC 156 media day on Thursday.  “If Anderson moved up to 205-pounds, it would be so fun.  I mean, people would go crazy over that, if he started to work his way up in the 205-pound division, take on a number one contender and if he wins he fights for the title.”

Silva has fought as a light heavyweight three times in his career, racking up first-round finishes over James Irvin, Forrest Griffin and Stephan Bonnar, but Silva has shown no interest in making a run at the UFC light heavyweight title.

On a media conference call prior to his last fight in October, Silva said he won’t make the move to light heavyweight.

“There’s always been a lot of talk about me moving up to 205,” said Silva, “I know Dana (White) has talked about it and all the fans have talked about me moving up and facing Jon Jones. But it’s something I’ve never wanted.”

So Rashad, BJ, Randy, Diaz, Edgar, and Sonnen all get immediate title shots after either losing or never fighting in a division (or both), but Anderson needs to work his way up?

OK Dana.


Dana is probably worried that Jones wins. The UFC makes more $$$$ off Anderson if they have him fight one time before Jones to build it up. Maybe Shogun or someone like that...

Is all this talk about Anderson moving up and fighting Jones the reason why Jon suddenly wants to move up and take the easier fight in Overeem?????

He is scared of Jones. # 1 reason........................he will screen appoinents until he finds someone easy for him to look amazing against at mw

Yes because the two fighters that Dana/Zuffa have in the running are Weidman and Rashad....usch easy tailor made opponents...lol

^^^^ Troll attempt?  I suppose you think Anderson should just talk to Machida/Nog/Glover and say 'look guys, you have no chance at winning the belt, so I am just gonna go for it and break the pact we had'....?

It would be pretty fucking hilarious if Andy decides he wants to move up immediately after JBJ officially goes to HW though.

Why can't guys just fight at their wieght class????? There is always someone up and coming and there are usually challengers for the belt at any given time for any wieght. Sure I would love to see GSP vs AS or AS vs JBJ but Anderson won't/can't go to 170 and he doesn't want to go to 205. He should defend the belt at 185 sometime soon imo.

Anderson remains an enigma to me. He's arguably cleaned out the MW division (yes, I know, Weidman - arguably that's one) and there is so much talent at LHW.

I didn't read much into the victories over Griffin/Bonnar as they were hand-picked for a reason (i.e. too slow). I think many would be far more impressed if he took on one of Evans, Gustaf, Jones, etc.

His legacy as GOAT is established but if he really wants to challenge himself, make the move to 205.

Or maybe Jon wants to be the goat and you dont achieve goat status by trying to talk the champ below you into a catch weight fight.

"Lyoto or Glover winning the belt? Not as long as Jones is a LHW. Nice troll attempt."

So Anderson moves up and beats Jones, where does that leave Lyoto, Rogerio, Glover, and Feijao? You would have five of the best fighters in the division refusing to challenge/defend the title against each other.
