ESPN MMA Live At UFC 94: Post Weigh-Ins, Wanderlei Moving Down To Middleweight

Unfortunately, I didn’t catch ESPN MMA Live’s UFC 94 weigh-ins special, but apparently, Franklin McNeil reported that Wanderlei Silva has decided to make the move to 185lbs. It’s no secret I’m a huge Wand fan, so it’s taken me longer than many others to accept that him moving down in weight is the right move for his career at this point in time. I would have loved to seen him make a run at the light heavyweight title, but that obviously isn’t going to happen, so if this is the best move for him, and now I believe it is, I’m all for it. Silva vs. Silva sounds a lot better than Silva vs. Leites or Silva vs. Cote or whoever. Hopefully, he wins a couple so that fight gets made.
