Silva's camp wants bout with Rockhold
Silva's camp wants bout with Rockhold - Mixed Martial Arts News
With the knock out loss to Vitor Belfort , Michael Bisping lost the chance to face Anderson Silva and hence embolou the middleweight category (up to 84kg) UFC. Now, they appear as leading candidates are the very Belfort, Chris Weidman , Luke Rockhold and Rashad Evans , who is heavyweight (up to 93kg), but has said he would come down in weight if it were to face the Spider. The business owner's belt, Jorge "Joinha" Guimar„es, reviewed the names and showed preference for Rockhold, Strikeforce middleweight champion and you just move to the UFC from other athletes extinct event:
- All of these are accredited, but we'd like a fight against Luke Rockhold is, what is the current Strikeforce champion. He is accredited to fight Anderson. It would be champion against champion. It's a good fight to promote - told SPORTV.COM.

Nothing spells lovin' like hand-picking your opponents. Good grief.

Meh, whatever. I still think if Ellenberger upsets Hendricks, GSP/Silva gets made.
Jeeze is he just running down the list of middlweights and picking out people that aren't Chris Weidman?

1. Souza and Kennedy victories are just as impressive as beating Munoz and Maia.
2. Being a SF champ, it is easier to market than Chris.
3. Probably a more exciting fight for the fans.
That being said, I think Chris vs. Luke is a fight to make to find out who the #1 contender should be. Really hard to count out Vitor but I guess he has to clear out the division of contenders before he can get another shot.
Crazy that if someone beats Vitor they are considered a contender but Vitor isn't considered a contender.
Another route would be Luke vs. Bisping/Cung and Vitor vs. Chris. Most impressive win gets the shot.

I'm just gonna fucking say it. He's DUCKING Weidman, I'm fucking sick of these politics when it comes to choosing an opponent for him. 10 MORE FIGHTS ? Yea fucking right

I think Weidman is the number one contender, but I would be cool with rockhold vs. silva. They could do Weidman vs. Souza on that card for a number one contenders fight. In the meantime Rashad could drop down and take on Lombard. Cung could take on Bisping. Whatever it takes to get Silva back in the ring. He doesn't have many more years of fighting.

Cung Le vs Bisping!?? You guys must love watching Bisping KO'd as much as me.
This is absolutely bullshit. Rockhold/Weidman to clear out Top Contender status if its that much of an issue, but this is getting ridiculous. Weidman is in there for it, but yeah he doesnt honestly have that great of resume either.
Fight for it already and lets clarify this garbage!
