    Maybe the question shouldn't be if Joe Silva could have found someone better, but if Kennedy was the only one willing to step up from all the MW to face Machida.

    Vitor, Jacare, Okami, Bisping, Munoz, Boetch, Rockhold, Phillipou,Carmont are all booked to fight.

    Cung Le is doing TUF: China

    Lombard is facing Marquardt at WW.

    Brian Stann is retired.

    Kennedy is not only the highest ranked and high profile fighter available, but he is also a soldier, someone who can represent and main event for an event called UFC Fight for the Troops card. I think given the situation, the fight makes sense.

    im not saying it wasnt a bad idea, but compared to this fight - its wayyyyyy better. At least Diaz would attempt to make Machida look the least bit exciting, Kennedy on the other hand wont touch Machida.

    So are we all reading into this to mean Anderson is either retiring or moving to LHW? I can't see Lyoto chasing the title if Anderson is still there and I suspect the two of them would have discussed this move.
    I think if Silva wins, he defends the title a total of ZERO times (unless they can somehow shoehorn Bisping into a title fight), so he can go do vanity fights. If he loses, he goes and does vanity fights or retires.

    He's 1-0 in the UFC, 4-1 in his last 5, and a military draw. Why would he be cut after one loss?

    Well duh. He's gonna beat Kennedy as well.

    But still, one last fight for Stann in front of his brothers and sisters? Would have been great.

    Or hell Stann vs Kennedy would have been awesome for this event. Army vs Marines.
