I know that but it seems to me any time Erick fights it's in Brazil where as someone like JDS hasn't fought in Brazil while under contract with the UFC.
GSP doesn't fight on every Canadian card he does alot yeah but he goes elsewhere just as much.
I just think it's crap because it isn't the Brazilian fans that are going to make him blow up it's his fan base up here thats going to do that and all of us want to see nothing but more of this guy and he dont fight where any of us have a chance to go see it.
I really believe that people like Bill Murray or John Belushi are just as great and just as valid as Robert De Niro or Al Pacino. And I don't think you can say One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) is a better movie than Animal House (1978); they're different genres. I think they're both examples of great craftsmanship.
Somebody like John Hathaway would be a good opponent.
On a side note, this card is stacked.
-Jose Aldo vs. Frankie Edgar
-Rashad Evans vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
-Dan Henderson vs. Lyoto Machida
-Urijah Faber vs. TBD
-Erick Silva vs TBD
"If a man with no arms and a man with no legs started learning karate, the same light bulb would appear over every head in Japan. That’s right: Glue them together and see if it can kill a panda."
All I know is Eric Silva is the shit. I really like his look as a fighter hell he reminds me of a character I have seen on Tekken.
That young man is going to go far in the UFC but he needs to step up his wrestling game.
Best Fighter on the planet.
Siyar or Dan Hardy would be exciting matches, maybe even Diego if he plans on staying at WW.
Since Alves is out until the summer, I think those three are the best matchups, unless they want him against a lower ranked fighter....

Erick Silva never wants another bad weight cut - Fighters Only
“I already spoke with my coach Wallid Ismail. If there is a vacancy or if somebody gets hurt, I would like to finish 2012 with four fights,” he told Fighters Only correspondent Acacio Rodrigues.“I apologized to Rogério Camões – my conditioning coach – for not to have followed the diet correctly. I lost 20kg during the preparation, including seven from one day to the following. I had to stay two hours on a bicycle in a sauna. I recovered 12kg from the weigh-in to the fight day but it is something I don’t want to repeat.”
