Good for Silva, that's what I like to hear. Now I wish GSP would come out and say that same thing about Silva instead of making excuses so that hype train can die permanently. I wish more fighters were realistic like that and just spoke the truth.
Actually you make a good point. I respect for Anderson Silva straight up coming out and saying he thinks Jon Jones will beat him. Jones has a size and strength advantage... and has age on his side. And as Silva said... the only real advantage he has over Jones is experience. If Anderson Silva was to win the fight... he'd probably find some small hole created by a mistake Jones made and finish it. Otherwise Jones probably would win with his size and strength advantage.
I would gain a lot of respect for GSP... even if he didn't accept the "super fight" if he just came out and said he thinks Silva would beat him and that's why he's not looking forward to the fight.
