That's a danger they are facing in every single fight. You are aware that this thread is about legacy¿ And to that I have answered. Silva has nothing to lose concerning his legacy if he fights Jones. I don't mind if Silva? doesn't want to fight Jones, that's his own business and I won't think any less of him.
So please keep your outcry of false ideas about fellow members for someone else.
What he has to lose?
His undefeated UFC record?
In my opinion he has many things to lose. And it is pretty clear.
