    Let's say Anderson fights all 10 fights of his new 10 fight contract. Who would he fight, and (roughly) when would he do it? This is something quick I came up with:

    1. Bisping - April 2013
    2. GSP @ catchweight - Mid-Late 2013
    3. Weidman - Early 2014
    4. Lombard - Mid 2014
    5. Jones @ LHW - Late 2014/Early-Mid 2015 RETIREMENT BOUT

    Ok, so I acknowledge it's difficult to find 10 fights, so just fill out what you realistically think will be his schedule. Some other possible fights to fill it out could be other MW contenders, lesser superfights (Rashad at MW), or other LHW bouts. It's worth noting that by his last fight with Jones in Aprilish 2015, Andy would be 40 years old. Imagine if he dispatches Jones via some flashy matrix finish, right after Jones had dominated LHW and was ready to move up to HW.

    1. Bisping
    2. GSP
    3. Nick Diaz
    4. Sonnen III
    5. Lombard
    6. Sonnen IV
    7. Okami III
    8. Sonnen V
    9. Cyborg (1st inter-gender title unification bout)
    10. His clone (technology will be ready by then)

    Sorry Weidman. Maybe next contract buddy.

    He'll stick around and fight whoever brings in the most money.

    Bisping, followed by a bunch of LHWs ranked between 15-25th and maybe Diaz

    2 fights ahead is about as far as you can look in this sport, whatever's scheduled and whoever might be after that

    beyond that, 3 is almost impossible. 10? completely impossible. if he fights all 10 fights, 3 through 10 could all be against guys we haven't even heard of yet. Newcomers that storm onto the scene.

    just look at weidman, nobody knew who he was a couple of years ago

    I believe Dana White recently said Anderson and GSP would have 3 fights in their respective weight class before fighting each other.

    I think we will see him lose sometime before this contract runs out. just because of age.
    anyway:
    1.vitor/bisping
    2.Weidman
    3.lombard.
    4.some random mid-tier LHW
    5.a LHW contender
    6.Jones
    7-10 no idea

    1. Bisping
    2. Wiedman
    3. Lombard
    4. Jones


    That's all I can come up with. I'm pretty sure the GSP/Silva fight won't happen. I really can't see Silva doing all 10 unless he fights 3-4 times a year

    how do u start a thread like this and expect people to give serious answers?

    I'd personally like some of the above, but just like Weidman came from aparently no where and "deserves" a title shot, i'm sure within 10 fights we'll have one or two others who either go on good runs or emerge from no where.

    I'd like (in no definitive order):

    Bisping
    Weidman (it would prove or dispute the "hype")
    Diaz (it'd be exciting)
    GSP (it's expected - it may never happen)
    Chael III (but i thought they made up)
    Machida (they're friends, but the striking battle would be interesting)
    Franklin III (Franklin's retirement beatdown)
    Evans (if he does drop to MW)
    Shogun (if a drop to MW makes any difference to his early decline)
    JBJ (it's expected - it may never happen)

    i think a 10 fight deal is kinda stupid. the guy is almost 38 and idc how good he is, no one can beat father time. i am certain he will lose at least once or twice within his next 10 fights

    Fixed and Weidman goes 10-0 during this stretch with all wins by finishes.

    Um, could you tinker with the "begin funny" part? I missed it.

    You really don't know business do you.. Dana wins on him fighting for as long as he can, because of his slight name value and exposure with brazilians. Let's not forget that he in fact brings entertaining knockouts to the table. Andy wins because IF he starts to lose 3 in a row when he is older, they still have to pay him for the amount of fights he has left on the contract is he is released. Win-win.

    Thats what I was thinking but I still think that is a weird assumption. I think Silva just wanted to secure that big paycheck for the rest of his career cause the next negotiations could be after he has a loss. I really was expecting him only to fight three more times however.
