"Maybe it's possible after this fight to fight at 185. The guys in my division are much tall, and it's hard. The guys are stronger, but I've fought in the division many times, many years. Here, the guys are much stronger. Maybe I'm going to fight next time at 185. I don't know. As long as they have good opponents for me at 185 too, maybe next time I go down. I don't know.... It's hard to go down and fight the champion. I need to fight other guys first. I trained with him a long time ago. We are friends, but a job is a job and friends are friends. In the future maybe it's possible to fight with him."

Wanderlei Silva shares his thoughts on a potential drop to 185 pounds after his light heavyweight bout with Keith Jardine this weekend at UFC 84: "Ill Will." He wants to stay at 205 pounds and challenge, according to the report, "UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Quinton "Rampage" Jackson for a third time and a rematch with Chuck Liddell;" however, he is not against a potential showdown with "The Spider" if things don't go according to his plan.
