    205lbs is referred to as Middle weight in Japan.

    Check out Silva's record http://www.sherdog.com/fightfinder/d...?fighterid=209

    "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.
