Maggie Hendricks asks:
So what happens to him now? How far does he fall? Though the discussions of title fights at middleweight revolve around Yushin Okami and Demian Maia, Leites will need a rebound fight. Perhaps he and Chael Sonnen can meet up and try to prove which one deserves their spot in the UFC. Maybe he just needs the crap beat out of him by Nate Marquardt.
Bump a rebound fight. I tend to like the Chael Sonnen matchup she mentions simply because I'd love to see Sonnen choked out or something. I have to admit though, I think a matchup with Yushin Okami would be pretty boring to watch. I would suggest Wanderlei Silva, but the Brazilians seem to have a hard time wanting to fight one another. Hold up, scratch that because Wanderlei Silva will fight ANYBODY. There's your answer as Thales Leites could welcome Wanderlei to 185 after Silva fights Rich Franklin at UFC 99. Thoughts?
