GSP walking around weight: 190 to 195
Anderson walking around weight: 202
Jones walking around weight: 230 to 240
So for Anderson to be the best Jones has to pick on a smaller guy coming towards the end of his career?
Silva walks around 215-220. He said so in the pre fight promo to Bonnar. So Silva is a lot closer to Jones than he is to GSP.
I am happy to see either fight... or both. I think the Jones fight makes more sense at this point... and Silva probably knows he's a much bigger threat.
