If Silva and Weidman ever did fight I promise you they would look for the next available wrestler before demanding he move up a weight class or two to fight Jones or Cain V.
That is how much Silva/Soares (since some can't distinguis the two) are hated. I would put money down that even if Silva fought and beat Weidman people here wouldn't give him his props. Instead they would say shit like, "about time he stopped ducking him".
To me the man is in a "catch 22" when it comes to the opinions of his detractors. It's damn if he does or damn if he doesn't.
The "poor me" statement I referred to. Everyone wants to see Silva fight Weidman because he is the top ranked MW in the division, not because he is a wrestler.
