I see no other challenge for Silva than GSP. Silva vs Okami? GSP is fighting Sheilds at the end of April so that could set up a superfight between the 2 for new years eve.

The weight difference will give Silva a huge advantage. I wish Silva would just jump up and stay at 205 from now on.

I'm very interested in how events play out, after the results of the event.

I'm looking forward to the Rua vs Jones fight, but would've preferred to have seen Jones against some of the elite top 10 contenders, before this shot. Rampage vs Jones (both coming off wins), or even Machida vs Jones (interesting stylistic match up) would've been nice, though there is the problem of having the LHW title held up too long. Either way, should a healthy Shogun show up, this will be an interesting battle.

Also, I'd like to see Okami take on Silva, first, while giving GSP time to ready for a super-fight (if he beats Shields). Building the weight correctly is critical for GSP, while Silva already carries an advantage coming into the fight, given it's his native weight class.
