    Silva seems like the kind of guy that doesnt care about the money, just wants to prove he is the best. Do you think there is a possibility that if Silva comes to the end of his contract and has run through everyone that he would leave just to be able to fight RJJ? Not to mention he will make a crazy amount of money

    I think a RJJ fight would be fairly lucrative. I also think he is a competitor and would prefer a challenge to a paycheck.

    Thats why I said at the end of the contract. I am sure that if competitors wanted to they could get the champions clause thrown out in court.

    How many fights could Anderson really have left? I am sure they resigned his contract after the first Rich Franklin fight and he has fought 4 times since then

    Yeah, but Silva is the guy who wants the next challenge and if he is dominating people in the UFC I think he will want to move on

    I could see him looking elsewhere when his contract is up if they don't get some challanges in MW for him soon.

    Or he is going to start taking things really lightly, training less and get knocked out by someone that would normally never have a chance.
