Anderson hasnt had a fight since Oct.
Most fighters like about a 4 month gap in between fights, which would mean Silva would fight again in Feb for UFC 95 (and give that piece of crap card a headliner)
If Lyoto wins by quick KO, then maybe he'll be ready to fight again in a month for 95. (Kinda like Koscheck has been doing)
If not, Silva will have to wait for Lyoto to be ready to fight again. So if Lyoto fights all three rounds, or gets hurt, or simply wants 4 months, that means they'll be fighting in May (UFC 98 with Hughes) or June (UFC 99, no confirmed headline) and that will be a 7 or 8 month break for Silva, not the best thing in the world to do.
Lyoto fights this month, Silva at 95 and then the meet at UFC 100?
