With the win, Silva has virtually ran the middleweight division dry of challengers.
Mark Munoz will face Chris Leben in the main event of UFC 136 in what could be a No. 1 contender's bout. The problem is, Silva has already proven himself to be superior than Leben by laying waste to "The Crippler" in his UFC debut and Munoz is ranked sixth in the Sherdog middleweight rankings.
Numbers two, three and four are Okami, Chael Sonnen and Nate Marquardt. Needless to say, when is Silva going to have a competitive fight without having his opponent fail a drug test after?
The answer isn't in the middleweight division, but in the welterweight division.
Here are a couple of reasons why Silva's next fight should be against the UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre.
