He's got nothing left to prove at MW. A fight with Jones is what's left for him I think. That must happen.
Its an all risk no reward fight for Dana and the UFC. I don't think they want the stigma of actually going backwards in the talent level of successive generations of champions.

Expect GSP-Silva before Jones-Silva.

Sonnen got hit on the temple, that's why he was down so quick, also the knee was to the BODY, therefore there's no problem with it, he also kneed Okami to the bady while he was laying on the ground from what i remember and no-one said a word.

Silva is the best striker ever in MMA and it boggles my mind why people such as Hendo and Sonnen would take their chances.

Ok in this fight, Silva adjusted very well for the takedown but Chael had him pinned against the cage ala Hendo and Randy and He could have just worked from there. The man decided to disengage and trade.
Jones knows what his bread and butter is, and that's taking shit to the ground and using elbows. He would use his length and extreme reach advantage to pull off chokes and strikes Silva just can't get in training. Saw how he choked out Lyoto against the cage? Silva used the cage here to help stay up what's to say Jones doesn't try to pull a standing choke against Silva.

Silva would be the toughest fight for Jones and Jones would be the toughest fight for Silva.

You can only beat whos in front of you. Plus GSP has lost at least 2 in UFC.

Just look at the skills man......No comparison.

Why? It would sell out the Bell Centre(hell it might get moved to a larger facility) or a stadium in Brazil. HOFer vs HOFer, Champion vs Champion. The two most dominant champions in history going at it. The build up would be huge, and I wouldn't be surprised if they jammed a second title fight on there as well.

Sonnen got beat by Bisping. Remember that people. Way too many people fell for the hype.

Again you would think so, but in the heat of the battle Anderson is very good at drawing you in coz He does get hit from time to time and then boom. I really think Silva will beat him standing up so He better not play.

The perfect tactic is either taking Anderson down or pinning him to the cage (which aint exactly hard) But He does have a way of goading you in into a striking contest and once you get tagged ala Hendo fight, you cant recover.

After Jones beats up Hendo they need to make Jones v Silva , it is the Mayweather v Pac of MMA type build up.

Anderson may have the best UFC record but GSP's losses to Serra and Hughes are much less worse than Anderson's to some Jap can and another Jap Can...oh and another loss to add to that. GSP has W's over a couple ATGs, Anderson does not besides Hendo.
