So with this fight not happening, where does this put the MW title picture? Will Hendo now come back, what about Marquardt or Belfort? Just want to know what yous peoples think will happen.

 

I think a good answer would be Hendo v Marquardt for an interim belt, and Belfort takes the loser to see who would fight the winner of the unifacation fight. Thats just me. With Belfort having a another fight in the meantime, like Sonnen or something like that.

... I'm familiar with the reasons stated, but I think he just does not wanna do the 185 thing ... no brock, no machida, no spider, no almeida, no crocop, & no hendo .. :(

Good point, wich is why I think either:

1) Strip the belt and have a fight for it

2) The other thing I said.

 

BTW, why has Silva pretty much turned down the only three fights that make any sense right now? He is becoming a Mayweather like guy for me. Still respect him, but thats fading too.

I suspect this fight wount happen at all. Does anybody else thinks that Soares is one shady dude.[/QUOTE]

 

+1

 

On the other hand, I think he just wants to protect his guys, and make them the greatest ever. A long time from now people will see the numbers, and forget all this stuff, meaning he would have managed two of the greatest ever in the UFC. Smart business.

No joke on that one. What's going on with major fights and fighters right now?

 

*Sigh*

 

I only see this coming out of A. Silva. Other guys have legit reasons. GSP had a bad elbow, and hurt his groin, anybody that hurts thier groin is out for a while. Lesnar was wicked sick, and so was Carwin. Im glad that they pushed that fight back so we could see the best of them with no excuses.

I think it's a pretty sad state of affairs when the inmates are running the asylum. By this I mean, Anderson is under contract to fight, right? Is it put in his contract that he has to defend his title 'X' number of times? If not, maybe it should be. I believe that his contract is pretty amaturish considering the leverage he is using to refuse to fight. If his contract was infact a solid contract, then Anderson would be contractually obligated to defend his title against whoever the UFC says. That's how it should be IMO. I don't think it is right that the fighter gets to chose, or thinks he can chose, who his apponents should be. To me, this is not a champions attitude.

 

All in all, I respect the heck out of Anderson for the talent he poses and the psychological component he brings to the sport. What I don't like is that he is picking and chosing who he fights and when (granted he's going for surgery - hardly his fault). I think the problem is how the UFC writes their contracts. If a solid contract was in place, Anderson (his manager) wouldn't be able to call the shots like they have been.

Well right now he's hurt, but has said that he doesnt think Belfort deserves the title. He said he would fight him, but not as soon as 108, because he's hurt, but doenst think he should defend his belt. I dont get it. Why dont we just give him what he wants, so he can lose a fight, and be humble? Give him a fight against either Mir, or Lesnar. Ya, I said it.

True, true. I hate how all these injuries have taken away some good fights. Lesnar, GSP, Alves, Almeida, Machida(heard he broke his hand so that will push back the rematch.) and it's just bad timing to happen all at once!

Yeah, the Alvarez thing really bummed me out for real. I was looking forward to that fight, definately one of my top three most wanted in the future. Mike Pierce will do fine though.

Speaking to MMAWeekly.com, Soares said:

 

?Our guys aren?t the only guys that have (situations like this). I?m sure every fighter out there goes through these types of things.?

 

Soares tackled the situation concerning UFC middleweight champion, Anderson Silva first, ruling ?The Spider? out of the promotions ?year end? card.

 

?I don?t want to rain on anyone?s parade, but he?s not fighting Jan. 2. He?s a guy who is coming off of wins and if that?s who they want to put in front of us, put him in front of us. We want to fight the best and if that?s who they think the best is, then great. We do think it?s going to be a good fight. Vitor is a dangerous guy.?

 

On UFC light heavyweight champion, Lyoto Machida, Soares revealed the surgery that was carried out was more extensive than originally planned but a rematch with ?Shogun? will be his sole focus once he?s healed up.

 

?Lyoto said, ?Hey, I?m not gonna have surgery until after the fight. I?ll rough it through?. I think (UFC president Dana White) has already approved it. Shogun wants it. We definitely want it.?

 

?Lyoto won that fight fair and square. Shogun came in with a great game plan, fought a very, very good fight, but Lyoto won that fight. But we want to go back in there and make sure there is no doubt who the light heavyweight champion is. We accept the rematch with a smile on our face.?

 

An interesting few months lie ahead for these talented Brazilian?s as they possibly face the toughest tests of their UFC career?s to date when they return to action next year. Can Machida regain that air of invincibility he enjoyed for so long and will Silva be able to show why he?s considered the best in the world when he squares off against Belfort?

 

 

So it looks like he will still be fighting Belfort, I hope they put Machida and Silva on the same card that would be awsome, who would be the main event though?

This is why I dont like Soars. Silva and Machida doe the fighting, you the talking, I get that. Dont refer to them, as if you are them. Anderson changes his story constantly. Now he wants to fight him? a week ago, you said no... Stupid. Not you tim, A. Silva.

I dont think they should strip his belt. Stripping the belt should be reserved for when a fighter refuses to fight (Tito Ortiz). If they want, they should make an interim middleweight fight between whoever (I think Marquardt vs Hendo due to the fact that Belfort hasn't fought at 185) and when Silva is healed and ready, he takes on the winner.

 

The UFC is all about fighter safety, so to strip the belt of a fighter because he is physically not ready to fight goes against everything they stand for. You shouldn't be punished because you are hurt.

Anderson has done this too much IMO. Sure in the past, some fightes they shouldn't have put infront of him (Cote), but now his impression is NO ONE is deserving. He has been quoted as not wanting to fight Hendo or Nate because he has beet them before (big deal, do it again then...), Machida (talk about ****), and Vitor.

 

Who is this guy? Or is it all that Soarres (?) idiot? Talk about ****!!!!!!!!!!!1

He didn't say he wouldn't fight him he just said that he doesn't think he deserves the shot. Which he doesn't really. Not that vitor doesn't have the skills he just hasn't put in the time like nate/hendo.

I actually agree with Anderson Silva believe it or not. I really have nothing against Vitor, but Vitor really doesnt deserve a title shot, and there isnt anyone at 185 that i think really poses any threat. (although i really want to see him vs Hendo one more time). I actually think it would be a good idea to have a supposed interim champion, have a small tournament with like 6-8 of the middleweights, and then crown a champion. In the mean time let Silva run around the LHW/HW divisions, have his superfights with GSP/Brock or w.e... and after the 185lb "champion" is crowned, have him fight that person.

 

At this point aswell Anderson Silva really has nothing to prove at 185lbs. I almost wished Machida would have lost, so we could have seen Silva vs Shogun.

Although Hendo is one of my favorites and most respected, I think Nate and Vitor are the only ones right now who have a chance at dismantling AS.

When did anderson silva say he refuses to fight vitor belford??? what part of anderson needing time to recover from the surgery he had people dont understand??

 

Some people probably never went to school in this forum or maybe they are drama queens..

 

Its simple ,

 

A silva is fighting belford , not jan 2 because he wont have enough time to recover but he is fighting belford.. GSP , MACHIDA AND LESNAR are all injure and noone is crying about that...

Settle down...AS DID say that Vitor wasn't deserving of fighting him. That can be taken a few ways, but considering Anderson's past attitudes about fighting guys the UFC puts infront of him, it is logical to assume AS meant he didn't want to fight Vitor. As for being injured...yeah, no kidding he is injured. No one expects him to fight injured. BUT, he said this about Vitor BEFORE anyone knew he was going for surgury. As for GSP, MACHIDA and LESNAR - neither of these guys has DUCKED competition.

Silva is too old to go back and fight guys he has already beaten.

 

He isn;t 25, and he isn't Dana White's meal ticket.

 

It is up to the UFC to come up with a challenger and if Hendo/Marquart is all they have Silva should take Roy Jones Jr or something else he thinks he can make some money on.

 

Neither Marquart or henderson have any business in the cage with Silva, unless its to help him train for a real fight against a legitimate threat.

 

Belfort should get his shot I guess.

When did anderson silva ducked competition??? He has fought everyone the ufc put in front of him ( franklin , henderson , marquart) , he has cleaned out the division , he even agree to move up to the LHW because dana thought it will be a great idea..

 

If you do not know about mma then dont post ..

 

Ducking competition !! sure buddy thats the reason anderson cleaned out the whole middleweight division , thats the reason why silva has the record for defending the belt ,and thats also the reason why silva is fighting in 2 divisions...

Sure he BEGAN to fight everyone they put infront of him. But why did he accept a rematch with Franklin when he completly manhandled him the first time. Oh...maybe because he knew he could do it again. So then why won't he give Nate or Dan a second shot? BECAUSE HE IS DUCKING THEM!!!!! Why else wouldn't he give them a second fight, when he did so for Rich. Why won't he fight Machida? Don't give me the best friends Bull___!!! I would gladdly kick the ____ out of my best friend in the same circumstances. I know he would too. It's a guy thing, you know? Or maybe you don't know?!?

 

As for fighting LHW...I think a guy walking around at 220lbs should have not problem to fight at 205lb, do you? I don't think it was an epiphany for AS to fight LHW. Oh, Anderson wanted to fight LHW, NOT Dana. He was just all for it, good marketing = more money.

 

As for not being an MMA fan...search my posts and you may learn a thing or two yourself.

travis lutter - winner of the tUF , beating patrick cote

nate marquart - comming from a 6 winning streak

dan henderson - do i need to explain this one???

james irving - probably the least decorated fighter , however he came from beating luis cane

patrick cote - comming from a 5 winning streak

thales leites- comming from a 5 winning streak inc beating nate marquart

From everything I've read about it the surgery Silva got was minor. He should have easily recovered now and frankly I'd bet he has. What his motivations are for not fighting are a mystery but I'm pretty sure it has nothing to do with an injury.

You call that lasting 2 rounds? The first fight was probably one of the worst one-sided beatings in the UFC to date. Yeah, he deserved a second fight! Yeah right.

 

AS has been quoted many times as saying that he doesn't think Nate or Dan DESERVE another shot. As a "fountain of knowledge within the MMA echelon, a real innovative mind when it comes to MMA, and one who's voice should be heard and trusted but doesn't know why it isn't", you should have seen these interviews by now. He is using this as an excuse to fight other people - specifically outside of the weight class he has a belt in. This is a refusal - just a BS way of doing it. Man up, and fight WHOEVER the UFC puts infront of you. They are the ones with objective eyes, not biased eyes like Soares.

I guess being injure is ducking the competition from now on ...

 

I can see your point if silva said he wont fight anyone anymore or if he says he refuses to fight anyone for the title ,even if he comes out and says he retires from the ufc , but thats not the case ..

dude your lack of knowledge really makes me laugh..

 

Wake up dude , Anderson finish all of his fights against top opponents and that includes nate marquart who lasted a single round and henderson who only lasted two

 

Funny thing is the only two fights silva did not finish were against what you guys call nobodys ( leites and maybe even cote ) although silva was toying with cote the whole fight
