"Don't you mean lightheavyweight?"
Depends whose weight classes you are talking about. Pride only has two:
Middleweight Class: Weight less than 93kg (205 lbs)
Heavyweight Class: Weight more than or equal to 93kg (205 lbs)
UFC has 5:
Lightweight - over 145 lbs. to 155 lbs.
Welterweight - over 155 lbs. to 170 lbs.
Middleweight - over 170 lbs. to 185 lbs.
Light Heavyweight - over 185 lbs. to 205 lbs.
Heavyweight - over 205 lbs. to 265 lbs.
Note the upper weight restriction in UFC. Someone liek Bob Sapp couldn't compete their for the title, if at all.

I have been hearing that Silva is going to be moving up to HW division in the future.

yea, I've heard that too but I don't think he'll be strong enough to compete with them.
He'll take out a few but will have trouble with some of the bigger guys.
I think he walks around at 235lbs. Mabey he'd be able to get to 245lbs but he'd be fighting people who are naturally 260+.

I don't think he would be best suited for HW due to his frame and height. Currently he weighs 205 if I remember correctly and if he put on another 30 pounds of weight I think he would be sacrificing some of his speed.
