It would seem that what you mean to say, is that Anderson has BARELY been defending his title for years.
Of course he hasn`t been defending the belt much lately, that division has been cleaned out more thoroughly than any other division ever has. If you spend 6 years destroying all the top guys, your bound to run out of new guys to fight. Every fighter who has put together a halfway decent argument for a title shot has gotten one. If Weidman beats top guys and really earns a title shot, Silva will fight him, just like he does everyone else.
