He's earned his right to have "fun" matches in different weight classes but don't hold the title hostage if you don't intend on defending it.
Chael got the rematch. Guess what. Anderson was right! He destroyed him just like he would have destroyed Hendo and Nate. He destroyed Belfort. Playing matchmaker?
It's fucking pointless to argue for Anderson on here. He beats anyone they put in front of him, and instead of getting credit, people come on here and say "Oh but if you give this loser one more chance, he will beat him NEXT TIME!".
Always "next time". I find it twilight zone fucking crazy that the loser of the fight gets more credit than the winner based on what he may or may not do "next time". I think the Chael Sonnen rematch showed what happens when somebody gets that "next time" fight.

How can Silva fans defend this I don't know.
No, just butthurt mma fans who at some point witnessed their favorite fighter get destroyed by Anderson and think "next time" it will be different.
