    A crap title for a supercrap translation. Another interweb hack looking to misrepresent information to create melodrama and attention for an article based on an interview he can't even understand. THAT's where MMA journalism is today...and the UG isn't even as bad of a site as so many out there.

    To be fair, he said he didn't think so, and noted that they're all employees of the UFC. If dana or Joe Silva books the bout, he'd take it.

    Anderson has been about risk/reward for the last 5 years. Given the chance to take the path of least resistance, he's going to take it.

    While I don't consider the situations equal, I think it's abundantly clear that no one was clamoring for Vitor to get an immediate rematch. However, he has earned one and Silva has seen fit to posture himself against it everytime it's mentioned.
    You win the internets, my friend. That sums it up right there.

    Has Vitor done what Anderson has done?

    The only way I see Vitor vs Silva happening again is if Silva beats Weidman and they don't instantly do a trilogy because Weidman gets injured in the fight or in training camp.

    Still holding out hope for Jacare/Belfort one of these days.
