Dallas Winston is back again, and this time he joins Connor to get all nerdy and excited about Lyoto Machida vs. Gegard Mousasi. Also covered are the two fights preceding that, Erick Silva vs. Takanori Sato and Jacare Souza vs. Francis Carmont, and none of the other fights from the card–thank the heavens!

This one’s short and sweet, so enjoy!

    Great podcast guys.

    I wholeheartedly agree about Silva, and have had the same feeling for awhile now. This pattern of feeding him a “gimme fight” then an elite guy just doesn’t make sense. Testing him against mid-tier UFC welterweights is the best way to go for now.

    Personally, there are several fighters I think could fit the bill;
    – Thompson/Whittaker winner.
    – Story/Gastelum winner.
    – Mike Pyle (w/ a win over Waldburger)
    – Thiago Alves (w/ a win over Baczynski)
    – Howard/LaFlare winner.
    – Josh Koscheck (not quite ‘elite’ anymore)

    Just curious, who would you like to see face Silva next? And why?

    • Connor says:

      Story/Gastelum or Mike Pyle sound like excellent fights for Silva. Any of those guarantee excitement, and they give him the opportunity to actually gradually build to a higher level of competition. If Silva tries some fancy shit and it doesn’t fly against someone like Pyle, chances are he can recover from the mistake, and hopefully learn a lesson. He needs meaningful experience, not just more wins. And then, after a run of 2-3 fights against guys of that caliber, give him another lower top ten guy so he can put himself in title contention.
