step 1) Get in the ring with him (this is the hardest step) step 2) Punch him in the face (oops no wait, this is harder) step 3) Continue beating him up, without getting the shit kicked out of you (ok, fine, THIS is the hardest step) So, if he sucks as bad as everyone is saying, how long do we have to wait for this to happen? While he was making a fool of himself, why didn't Demian Maia kick his ass? I mean, I remember the schoolyard, it's not that hard to punch an asshole in the face, right? Considering how pist Dana is, he should be lining serious contenders up every 3 months to get that damn gold off Anderson's waist ASAP. Vitor, Chael, winner of Belcher/Cote.... All legit contenders. All capable of taking the belt. Personally, I think that Belcher has the best chance of beating Silva, based on the specific style of attack and analytical method he has. I genuinely believe that the moment Silva is checked by another alpha male, he will start to question himself, and his reaction times will drop. Sonnen would get the Maia treatment. Belfort is a wild card IMO because of history and inactivity.
