Here is a loosely translated text from Wanderlei Silva’s official blog:

Wanderlei speaks about a possible fight with Keith Jardine:

Everybody is talking about the Jardine fight but has nothing official, I think it would be a good match-up because his style with with mine and it certainly would be great choice for my next opponent.

Wanderlei on a possible drop to Middleweight:

The fight between Anderson Silva against Dan Henderson will be great, if Dan Henderson wins I wouldn’t think twice drop down to 185lb and fight him . Respect aside, a lot has changed since my last fight because it was not one of my best days at that time. I am thinking seriously considering to change my weight category here in the UFC because I am very lite

Do you want to see me in another category?

What they think? I will do everything possible to update the blog more constantly to keep them informed of everything, everything that happens with this friend that you have here in Lãs Vegas. Love, stay with God.

    i think wandi should fight keith jardine and see how that goes. if he loses then he will be a nice addition to the middleweight division.

    i don't see why one of the best lhw's should drop down there is still so many match ups at that weight that i would love to see him in win or lose.

    Wandy had lost his last 3 fights, so taking a chance in the LHW division is career suicide to me. You have to relise that Wandy is short for a LHW and he could make the cut and still be a force to be reckoned with. I see him dropping to MW and building an impressive win streak enroute to a rematch with Hendo. This would biuld his reputation back up and get him the confidence he needs to compete at the lever he did in Pride. Nate Marquardt would be a solid first opponent for Wandy at MW. Marquardt would test Wandy to show him where he is at this point of his career and a win would boost Wandy straight to the top of the contenders list. besides the MW division needs another solid fighter.

    I agree, Wandi in his pride days was amazing… but he looked small next to Chuck Liddell. I think he should move to MW… I'd love to see him fight Franklin or Bisping!
