How soon we forget, pre-fight, between fights at UFC 112, Rogan and the press was promoting and pushing for this fight. Seemingly inevitable. Then after Maia:
"Anderson Silva doesn't deserve (to beat hell out of) GSP"
The mega-fight was penciled in before Maia began....before Dana White went ape-$hit about the Silva v Maia. Lot of short memories here.
Shortly after, GSP safely got tucked in TUF and is recycling his biggest foe - Koscheck.
