After that amazing performance by Anderson Silva at UFN 14, it is hard to wonder what is next for this talented fighter. Stay at 185 and clean out the division or move to 205 and have a run at one of the UFC deepest divisions.
When asked about Anderson Silva’s next fight at the UFC Fight Night 14 press conference, UFC President Dana White said:
“Okami’s out of that fight. He broke his hand. If (Silva) fights in September [ UFC 88 ] it’ll be (Patrick) Cote,” stated White at Saturday night’s post-fight press conference at the Palms in Las Vegas.
“(Silva) said he wants to defend his 185-pound title. He said he wants to test the waters at 205. He did (on Saturday night)….He’s going to defend his title again in September and then probably try to take another fight at 205.”
“I think he wants to take his time. I think he wants to stay at 185 and completely clean out that division, go from there.”
