Read it again, that wasn't the point at all. Silva's camp wants Sonnen to take another bout rather than sit on the sidelines waiting for Anderson's "injury" to heal and I imagine they'd love that match to be Palhares or Maia because he'll be tapped again and they won't have to worry about the cash cow getting pummelled for five rounds again.
