    If not... then we can all complain and have a good reason for it... but people are way too quick to cast judgement.
    At this point, it is not definite.

    It is still a toss-up between Weidman and Rockhold.

    Rockhold is still more likely due to the UFC being a business that chooses the opponent for champions that is likely to make the most moolah. The lame champion vs champion aspect makes Rockhold the more likely choice for the UFC.

    While I argue that Weidman's ranking and resume is more impressive, I still think Rockhold is more likely to be the choice of Zuffa.

    Thread doesn't have to die. People just need to discuss instead of being vaginal.

    Ultimately, I want Anderson to defend against a top 10 MW. Rockhold fits the bill, and the fight would be entertaining. I also think the UFC could certainly hype the champion vs. champion angle if they chose...they've certainly done more with less in the past. Anderson's camp have said they want to fight him in the past, so that obstacle should be cleared.

    If Silva fights Rockhold, it gives Weidman an opportunity to mature with another bout, and if he wins, it makes him even more viable an opponent.

    What I didn't want is Anderson to fight someone who isn't a credible MW defense, or one of the vanity fights he was pursuing without at least defending before August. I'm glad the Bisping hype deflated with Belfort's headkick, as he's barely a top 10 fighter.

    If I could wave a magic wand, Anderson would get the brazillions of dollars he wants for every title defense, regardless of how famous his opponent may or may not be. But ultimately, I think it's all going to work out well: we'll get a title defense, it will probably be Weidman, if not, it will probably be Rockhold, and the world goes on.

    Does that help you understand that I am going beyond what you said, and actually implying why you said it?

    as for this

    that was in response to someones post. So I was assuming that is what they were referring to.

    PS its funny to through the definitions of the words on there, but please answer my question above this time.
    I dont know which is worse, the fact that no matter how many times RH explains the difference in "in almost 5 years" and "in 5 years" you can't get the point or the fact that you weren't smart enough to come up with the dumb statement yourself but had to copy it from someone else then preach on it like it was fact.

    I'd like to hear it, if I am.

    Your statement is interesting, because I feel like I'm doing the exact thing you're saying: trying to keep things in perspective when people can't see Anderson objectively.

    Hey Riv,

    I was actually replying to Norris. Welcome back by the way. I haven't seen a post from you in awhile.

    You are out of context, this is part of a much larger discussion.

    Haha, no I'm not. The fact that you think I took all of that out of context just further proves the point that you just don't get it.
