Wanderlei Silva: Middleweight?

New, comments

A few months ago, Wanderlei Silva dispelled rumors that he would be dropping to middleweight.  Since then he has been rumored to be fighting Keith Jardine in May, but an interview today with his physical trainer at Gracie Mag suggests otherwise:

If he should drop to middleweight, we will work on his losing weight and preserving his muscle mass, losing only water and fat and not strength and size, since he normally weight 98 kilos. But nothing's for sure yet, we'll wait and see.

It's all speculation at this point, but this may be related to the cancellation of Ortiz and Machida.
