This is going to be a short article. I'm hoping for lots of feed back and more conversation on the topic so feel free to shoot some ideas out there.

After tonight's astounding beat down of Forrest Griffin, Anderson Silva has shown he definitely can hang in the light heavy weight division.

I still think Dan Henderson can give him a pretty decent fight, maybe or maybe not? I would also like to see GSP take him on. Silva hasn't fought on the ground in awhile and if anyone can take him down its St. Pierre. Is it time for him to officially move up a weight class and compete for the light heavy weight title? Or should he finish out his contract with UFC and go to professional boxing even? Your thoughts people.

I would personally like to see the Hendo, GSP, and then make a run at the light heavy weight title and see him hold two belts at once. Light heavy weight has to be the most stacked division I think between Evans, Jackson, Machida and others, would certainly provide a new host of fresh meat or eventually show he can be stopped. Either case its interesting to see what will be next for Anderson "Spida" Silva.
