Silva has nobody to blame but himself for not being a better draw; he speaks English and he's got to be smarter than that team of village idiots he calls managers and allows to speak for him.
Weidman would be a better draw than half of the fighters Anderson has happily faced.
Actually its his managements job to get him the most money possible... but we all know how much they get trashed for that...
And the UFC should be stacking the cards in the first place... that is not too much to ask for by any means, as it should be done in the first place... but the UFC has been trying to sell the main event vs. the entire card a few times in recent memory.
And yes, if he did speak English and did more to get himself exposure, it would help him become a bigger draw.... earning him more $. that is his fault for not doing that.
