    Default It's down to Chris Weidman or Rashad Evans to fight Anderson Silva next

    Ariel Helwani ‏@arielhelwani
    Dana: if Rashad wins on Saturday and wants to go to 185, I would consider him vs Anderson. It's down to him and Weidman.

    So......no 1 contender or unranked in weightclass Rashad. Wiedman doesnt need to wait for that phone call because its not coming.

    I actually hope they don't give it to Weidman at this point. Injury lay-off plus the stuff with his home, I'd like to see him in another fight to make sure he's got his head-on straight before they give him to Anderson. Why not stick him in with Vitor or the Bisping/Belcher winner (since neither is likely getting a shot any time soon).

    Splatoon or Elation(thank you autocorrect) is right on target. You don't fight the greatest in the world coming off a long injury. Get a fight under your belt wit someone easier and then take Anderson on.

    I'd rather see Weidman get the shot over Rashad because A. he has more than 0 career wins at MW, and B. his gameplan won't be just to ****ing lay on Anderson and run down the clock.

    For money, Rashad/Silva but if you want to try and give the impression your rankings are legit, you give it to Wiedman.

    He's old and needs a couple of years between fights to recover.
