I remember Sonnen said he weighed 207 when he left the hotel on fight night. Silva is a Welterweight and will find out he isn't a LHW when he fights one of the top dogs of that division.
Are you an idiot, he fought Irvin when he was a top dog, and Griffin was champ not too long ago, and seeing as hoe Evan's was rocked by Thiago makes him have a questionable chin especially against A. Silva, Rampage loves the stand up more than the ground so with Silva's speed he would dominate, now lets get real, Shogun and Machida would be his biggest challenges because they're both counter fighters just like he is. And the one thing a counter fighter hates more is another counter fighter just as Machida displayed at UFC 104 where he won a controversial unanimous decision.
Anyweight class he wants, hes gonna destory doesn't matter wat class
He belongs in LHW IMO, his height and reach that goes with it, is too much for the MW.
I think he'll find a tougher battle at LHW than anywhere...not HW, he wouldnt be dominant there, his frame couldnt build that kind of mass and would get smothered
With no doubt in my mind I think he should fight at MW and LHW. Then he can be the first one to unify the belts =D
If he beats Belfort and Sonnen there really isn't much to do after that other than going up to 205
He should maintain his middleweight belt to show he is the best middle weight. AND he should fight at LHW regularly to show he is a top pound-for-pound fighter
Who is anyone on here to say what a guy like A.Silva's weight class should be? He doesn't even have to have a regular weight class regardless of what some "experts" may advise.
As long as he's kicking arse wherever he goes he's beyond anyone's opinion but his own.
So by that logic every poll made is unquestionably self-justified? The poll does pose a fair enough question and I expressed my opinion or didn't you "understand???" that?
Mine was also a reaction to the way most half-wits were so vehemently giving their opinions as though they actually know better than silva or his trainers?
Greenpeace? Wanna explain that one 'dude'? Go on son. Give us all a laugh!
