You call out someone in a lower weight class, especially when he's out with a career altering injury, then you make the adjustments necessary to make the fight happen. Simple as.
Anderson wants the fight bad. He is the only one of the 3 that can go below his weight class. He makes his weight class easier than anyone according to Dana. Dana said he makes that with no problem what so ever.
He wants it bad but he isn't making 170. So he will just do something else. He offered. GSP declined. That is fine. Not many times can you pit the #1 vs the #2. But oh well. I will hold out for the hopes of Jones/Anderson after Jones gets done doing a reality show and backing up the division. Not sure if Anderson taking on Bones would be fair to teh Machida/Hendo winner. Jones has many challenges at 205. Perhaps Anderson will just retire.
