see the thing is andersons been trying to fight for the p4p title but gsp been trying to avoid the fight...
GSP fought BJ when he was ranked 3rd, Anderson refused to fight Machida after BJ lost and Machida was 3rd. Anderson didn't fight Rashad who has always been on the list. The UFC made Jake Shields who was a MW on the p4p list drop down to WW to face GSP.
I don't get how the guy who has fought two guys on the p4p list (Penn, Fitch) and is taking on a third (Shields) is a coward over a guy who hasn't faced any 205ers on the list.
