A.Silva needs to make a decision... gain weight or lose weight.. or retire...
Jones cant make 19x without sacrificing something, and Silva cant make 170 without sacrificing something... Silva simply doesn't want to be the one making the sacrifice..
The dude signed a 8 fight contract, either defend your title, or step it (Up or Down) and make the super fight happen!
That's the thing.
None of the three want to fight each other(except Silva wants GSP) because they have to sacrifice and risk so much and none of the three needs the fight at all.
It's a bad fight for all three guys...a lot of risk and not much reward except for some big money....but they stand to lose more with a loss than they have to gain from one big pay day.
GSP and Jones are still young too....Anderson is getting old so he's really the one who wants to cash out on GSP since he'll have a size advantage and it'll make him the most money since GSP is the biggest draw in the sport.

That's because he manages his weight.
He's a big guy....quite obviously.
