Default Will Silva Ever Move Up To 205 Again?

Or is he gonna stay at 185 till he retires? Hes already cleaned out the division and its getting annoying to see him destroy opponents so easily. The list of fights to be made at 205 are ridiculous.

Matchups at 205 there are, but a fight with Palhares and a rematch with Sonnen would be of great interest to me. The public wins either way

Besides a Sonnen rematch there just really isnt that much out there at 185. Palhares is a good fight but at the end Silva will be too much.

Id go bananas if Silva fought Shogun or Bones at 205.

The only thing that I can see making Silver move up is if Machida get beaten up badly by Jones

Think Rocky 4

I doubt thats gonna happen either. GSP doesnt seem to budge either on moving up from 170.

That is because GSP has absolutely no intention of putting that vile Glass Jaw he's habouring in the same hemisphere as Anderson Silva.

GSP is waiting for Silva to lose a step.

I doubt he will fight Jon Jones.. The two are friends, Silva invited him to the Sundance Festival where his Documentary was being presented. With such an age gap, if they have any relationship, it would be that of a big bro, little bro.. I believe they respect eachother enough to not to fight.

This is the fight game, but I bet money they don't fight.

If he moves up it will be for good reason, but I doubt he will.
