By that Logic should Jon Jones fight Silva at 185
Same Size Difference Between Silva And Jones as their is Between Gsp and Silva...
Jones 6'4" 230lbs 84.5" reach
Silva 6'2 210lbs 78" reach
Gsp 5'11" 190lbs 77" Reach
Those are pretty fair #'s give or take a pound for each fighter.. Silva is alot smaller then he used to be(Bonnar fight, compared to Forrest fight).. Gsp may be as well too since he doesn't lift weights anymore....
Actually, none of these guys should be fighting at all, Anderson needs to do his job and defend his belt. Anderson is the one whose pushing for this fight, GSP has said a thousand times he wants to focus on 170.
But the difference is, GSP has never fought outside of 170 in the UFC, Anderson has gone up to Light Heavyweight three times and he's won all three fights in the first round by KO. So if one of these Super Fights does happen, why shouldn't it be between the Light Heavyweight Champion and the guy whose gone up to Light Heavyweight three times and stopped a former Champ who was ranked in the top five at the time?
I'll tell you why, Anderson knows he'd end up on his back and he'd bleed and he'd have no answer for Jones and he'd get pounded out, so now he wants to build his legacy and pick on a guy 15 lbs lighter than him.
Reading brah - you're doing it wrong.
Actually, no, Anderson has already said he wants to fight GSP regardless if he wins or loses.
