Default Re: Who should Anderson Silva fight next?

Also, Melendez. Overeem and Cormier are all top-5 in their respective weight-divisions.

It's Weidman or Evans, IMO.
Ok but Evans has never fought at MW so I don't see how he is deserving of a title shot. Weidman's a good choice but he won't be back from his shoulder injury till mid Summer. Furthermore, Rockhold has a better resume than Weidman and the champion vs. champion angle makes a fight with Silva much more marketable than a bout with the relatively unknown Weidman.

Give Rockhold the title shot.
