    It must happen. Both on the tail end of their careers and I think it would be a classic.

    The prospect of that fight is so depressing that I'm thinking about swallowing a handful of pills.

    Different weight classes. Da Chris moved down again. Anderson Silva vs Da Chris makes more sense

    Honestly it's the best fight for both. Could see either winning

    Shogun in the grave still sleeps him.

    Shogun has too much firepower for him at this stage.

    But another fight I would actually watch.

    Why? Cuz...

    I think Shogun KOs him with ease if he connects clean

    I say Chris vs Silva or Luke. Shogun vs whoever Chris doesnt fight.

    It's possible Shogun finds Chris' faded chin, but more than likely Weidman would take Shogun down and dominate him. First round GNP finish.

    I'd rather see him rematch Anderson Silva tbh. Also Chris wants to try and make a run at middleweight, no matter how ill advised that might be.

    You know a fight i would really like to see. Weidman vs vettori. Vettori ia a young prospect that a lot of people have really high hopes for and weidman is a name fighter, ranking wise also makes sense and its not like weidman looked good enough against a number 10 guy that we can trown him against a top 5 again

    I'd rather see Silva/Weidman 3. Let's have a serious fight now. No crowd, no hype, no funny antics, and hope to God no unfortunate circumstances. Just two fighters skill for skill. Let's see how it goes. A good ol high level striker vs wrestler scrap is always a treat to watch

    I think Weidman turns it into a boring Lay n Pray fest and wins 29-28. Though it's equally possible Shogun catches him and KOs him.

    it's also not the fight to make. a fight that largely people will be indifferent about if made and this forum will cry about how the loser should retire and the winner still has a shot at the title.

    We already had two serious fights, Anderson just got besmirched in both of them.
