Anderson wants GSP, says he's semi-retired...but is fighting for 5 more years.

Quote:
的知 old, guys. I知 getting old. I知 retired. I知 nearly there. I致e only got another five years. I think [GSP] would be a great challenge for me. I prefer him over Jon Jones. He痴 smaller. It値l be a little bit easier. I値l be hit less.

While talking to the media following last Saturday痴 dominant win over Stephan Bonnar, the pound-for-pound king, Anderson Silva discussed whats next in super fights.

Is his assessment correct? Is GSP an easier bout than Jon Jones?
Kind of an odd series of comments. Basically saying he is near retirement but then saying he will fight another 5 years. At least he is honest about his reasons for wanting GSP, but it would seem that Anderson isn't as excited about challenging himself as he comes to the end (in five years???) of his career.

Still, a lot can happen if he really wants to stay in the game another 5 years. I honestly thought he only had 4-5 fights left.
