GSP has WAY more fans than JBJ. And while you and I both know that Jonathan vs Anderson is the fight that SHOULD happen, GSP vs Anderson will sell more. And let's be realistic, it's still a SICK fight.

Jons is also tied up with Chael Sonnen. So if you feel strongly that Anderson shouldn't fight GSP, I wonder how you feel about Sonnen vs Bones...
I am not really interested outside of seeing Sonnen get wrecked.....

I actually believe the 2 together pitted against 1 another could rival or maybe even surpass that number. In all honesty, we do not really know which pairing would generate the most sales/ppv buys but I believe Jones/Silva might actually do better.....
