Considering Robbie and Le already have deals, my hope is that Melvin Manhoef is the guy who makes the next A. Silva PPV worth buying

Sounds like complete BS.

He is pretty unknown to a lot of mma fans, and completely unproven.
He has 6 fights, his toughest being a washed up Frank Shamrock.
I couldn't see them offering him that much knowing he wouldn't be a huge ppv draw right away,
and knowing that there is a huge chance he would get walked on.

They probably learned the lesson with Sokoujdou (Spelling?).
300K a fight is huge money.

Yeah, I would be super interested in that, although the guy is like as tall as Matt Serra lol

only way they sign Cung, is to talk trash to Frank. we just brought in the guy who beat Frank.

True statement, but the guy is a tank (he has fought, and fought well at that at 205). I think Silva has a superior ground game, but it seems like the Spider is bored right now and wants a challenge more than anything else (I think this is a big reason for the GSP/205 talk - the man has nothing left to do as far as the current UFC MW roster is concerned). Going blow for blow with a K1 level striker like Manhoef is something that would force Anderson to bring his "A" game, and would be an incredibly entertaining fight, imo.
