    In this welterweight main card should be a good one. Hardy would be a nice name for Silva to recuperate the Fitch loss

    It is called protecting marketable fighters. I would rather see Hardy v Brown.

    I'd rather see Hardy fight someone like Matt Brown...

    Maybe Hathaway vs Silva? Let the young guns scrap?

    Erick Silva vs. Mike Pierce or Mike Pyle in my opinion.

    Hardy vs Brown makes more sense because they've both beaten Mike Swick. Also too much of a step down in competition for Silva even though he lost to Fitch. Silva still beats anyone at WW easily, apart from Rory or GSP. I'd put money on Silva if he fought Condit

    Nope. Since when does losing to Fitch make someone a world beater? I think Hardy would catch him. Silva hasn't fought anyone except Fitch and he lost.

    Erick Silva vs. Seth Baczynski is the fight to make.

    Pierce and especially Pyle have too much momentum, and deserve bigger fights.

    Silva did a lot better against Fitch than Hardy did against any of the elite fighters he faced.

    Wasn't saying he didn't. I just think Hardy would catch him.
    And Silva really hasn't faught anyone except Fitch, and he lost (in a good scrap)

    I think Mike Pyle is a good fight for Silva.

    I'd like to see Silva get the winner of Fitch Maia

    Erick Silva vs Kampmann will be made for 158 imo.

    I think Erick would beat Hardy, but I agree with you that he's overrated.

    A while ago a bunch of guys were talking about how he should fight Condit and that he would beat him badly.

    Yes and it was a good fight. So either a rematch of his back and forth with Fitch or him and Maia in a jits match
