Ever since Anderson Silva brutally put away his top money making rival Chael Sonnen the middleweight title batter has tasted confusing with the only viable challengers not deemed worthy to tussle with the middleweight king, according to his management.
Well, it seems we might have a solution if Silva moved 15-pounds south to welterweight, the current home of his consensus pound-for-pound rival George St-Pierre.

Anderson Silva’s Blast From The Past
OK, that was the start of a bad joke. Nonetheless, Anderson Silva and Lyoto Machida share a laugh in between training sessions last week.
