Not many ppl will bash him losing to Gsp vs Weidman.
You dont think it has anything to do with the poorly marketable a fight between him and Chris is? The man is a a virtual unknown to casual fans. Its 100% about money to Silva.
If Silva faces and beats Chris, not only would it backtrack another rising contender, but it would be looked at by many as another gimme fight for Silva.
