    How would you match Silva and how do you think that Zuffa will?

    Chris Weidman? 205?

    Weidman or Rockhold belt unification. Bisping losing tonight kinda fucked things up.

    Depends on how long until he wants to fight again. have him either fight Weidman or put Weidman against Rockhold and have him fight the winner.

    Anderson ran through everyone. I can't even think of anyone who would have a chance. Weidman is awesome but he is nowhere close to the Spider.

    It was one of those stupid match ups that Dana says the UFC never makes, one that kinda leaves everything at a loose end if one guy wins. Belfort - Bisping would only be a good match up if whoever won got a shot. These one way contender bouts suck balls.

    I'd prefer he move up to 205 and get killed by JBJ, but he clearly doesn't want none of that so give him Weidman and let's see what Mr. Christopher is all about. If he's as good as I believe him to be, he's got a chance in this one, which is more than can be said about the majority of other contenders' names being floated around.

    GSP, Jones, Mousasi at 185, Rashad at 185. If all else fails put him in against any top 10 LHW.

    I agree,I think the only exciting option for Anderson is to fight at LHW,in my oppinion fight someone like Davis or Bader,then jones after.Would love to see him fight Rashad though.

    I'm with you man. Now they've successfully torpedo'ed one guys legitimate shot at the title and in return they get... a crowdful of happy Brazilians? Cuz if they ain't gonna give Vitor another crack at Anderson, all they've done is sink the Count's career.

    I just saw teh Bonner fight on Netflix.....I am now convinced he would toy with Jones and would make him look like a toddler in with a school yard bully.
