Shogun currently has his hands very full, however, taking on 205-pound phenom Jon Jones in the UFC 128 main even next month in New Jersey. And even though he's the current division champion, as well as holds remarkably more experience against stiffer competition, the early oddsmakers favor "Bones" to usurp the light heavyweight champion's 205-pound crown. Silva, meanwhile, is patiently waiting to see if Georges St. Pierre can dispatch of Jake Shields at UFC 129 in Toronto on April 30. If "Rush" wins, he'll likely move up to middleweight and battle Silva in a legacy-building superfight. Shogun vs. Silva, therefore, is a long shot to happen anytime soon. But it must be nice for Dana White and Co. to have so many fantastic fights at their fingertips. Yushin who?
LOL agreed!!
