The only way I'd accept that size difference was not an issue would be if Silva stepped on a scale immediately before stepping into the cage.
Silva barely weighs 220 playing with his kids in one of his mansions.
The dude was out of shape and 202 lbs for his last LHW fight...but apparently he "cuts" to 205.
Him and George are damn near the same size weight wise. It's all about length and height.
The really lame thing about it is that GSP hasnt even agreed to it after an old ass man who should theoretically have more trouble cutting weight said he'd take it at 170.
