What's next for Anderson
Not sure we've dedicated a thread to it yet but what do you guys think is the next move for Anderson? More importantly what would you like to see him do?
Personally I'd like to see him move up to LHW and start a run there. No immediate shot at Jones because he hasn't earned that but there's plenty of interesting fights for him. Shogun, Hendo, Rashad, Gustafson, Vera, lots of guys he could co-main event a PPV with.
I don't like the idea of an immediate rematch because the fight wasn't close, didn't have a terrible judges decision and didn't involve a poor decision by the ref. Besides let's presume he does win against Weidman. We'd be right back where we were with talks of him having cleaned the division and him wanting big names or superfights. I don't want to go back to that MMA world.
The talk a Roy Jones Jr fight isn't really worth mentioning as I'm only concerned with the progression of MMA as a sport not some MMA/boxing exhibition.
Anyways what do you guys think?
Hating on Anderson Silva before it was the cool thing to do.
The idea of a "true number one contender" is the stupidiest MMA idea to be perpetuated by fans and media, EVER.
