He can't get a rubber match, Chris is 2-0 on him. But he could earn a 3rd shot and I'd be absolutely fine with that. I'd like him to do that actually, just doubt his ability to achieve it at this point.

I got a feeling some people around here will get the panties in a twist if it happens.

Hate to say it but Silva didn't have anything for him

I don't think you understand how it works. It's no rubber match as Silva already lost twice. By default he loses the trilogy. If he works his way up legit (a few fights), there's nothing to complain about as he's beaten all other contenders, leaving himself to challenge for the belt. No one else would be available to fight.

It's only panties in a twist time if he gets the immediate rematch after losing twice in a row.

third fights arent needed unless its 1-1 or one of the fights is extremely controversal

I'm totally convinced Chris is a better fighter than Anderson, but that said, Anderson is still one of the best ever imo.

It may be blasphemy but I like both guys.
