    However, White would first need Henderson to agree to a contract extension — not to mention an equally difficult task of convincing the fighter to drop from the 205-pound division to 185 pounds.

    "I want to head butt the guy every time I talk to him," said White. "He could be a force at (185), and it'd be a great match-up (with Silva). But he's very hard-headed."

    Well, Dana specifically left out Okamis name in the post fight presser, so I am guessing Leites

    You look at the UFC Welterweight and LHW division and they are both fucken STACKED. Why dont some of the welterweights think about bulking up to 185 or the LHWs cutting down to 185??? There's such sick talent in both of those divisions. Guys like Diego, Kos, Maybe even Jon Fitch, they can all be some great MW fighters and they can all get title shots after maybe 1 fight IF that...Instead these WW and LHWs are stuck in their division where they wont have a chance to get a title shot for at least a year no matter how well they perform. Diego and Kos were fighting MW during the Ultimate Fighter 1 anyways and Fitch looks big enough that he could be make for a solid MW fighter.

    Is everyone really that afraid of Anderson Silva?? I guess I dont really blame them but fuck..

    And i dont even know what Hendos thinking. As much as i hate to quote mike goldberg i think hendo, "likes ice cream too much".

  13. Okami pins him against the cage while Leben throws haymakers.

    Of course Silva would probably KO leben with a front snap kick, then headbutt Okami unconcious.

    he really needs to move down, if not just to unify that title and if he wins he will probably be there for a long time

    if he moves down and loses right away to silva he is worthless. He probably wants to smash some dudes first.

    Probably the only decent competition for Silva at that weight class.
