Anderson Silva’s camp wants Luke Rockhold next

Ever since Anderson Silva beat Chael Sonnen in dominate fashion at their long anticipated re-match, UFC fans have been wondering who and what’s next for ‘The Spider’? Apparently, Silva’s management already have somebody in mind. The team spoke of Strikeforce middleweight champ Luke Rockhold, and although he is still contractually bonded to the organization, they still think he’s the best choice as of right now. Here’s what they had to say on Rockhold and other possible (but unlikely) options for the UFC champ:

“One of Anderson Silva’s managers said that one of the issues with Hector Lombard is he thinks he needs at least three more impressive wins in the UFC. He said that 85 percent of UFC fans don’t even know who Hector Lombard is, who is of course making his Octagon debut on Saturday night.”

“As for Chris Weidman, he said, ‘Well, there’s another great unknown fighter.’ He doesn’t see those match ups as being money making pay-per-view events.”

“He did mention Luke Rockhold, who is the Strikeforce middleweight champion. Alas, Rockhold is contractually tied to Strikeforce, so that fight’s not happening. We’ll have to wait and see, but right now, the Anderson Silva camp not too excited about the options out there.”
