sorry, but if mayweather pulled the sh1t that anderson is about to.......

ok, so imagine mayweather said he was going to step down a division to take on the smaller champion (at a weight silva hasnt fought at in years) instead of going up in weight to fight the new outstanding champion there ( a weight silva expressed intrest in many's a time), what exactly would people say??

a year or two ago when this superfight talk started everyone wanted the fight, but they wanted it when GSP moved up.... no one mentioned silva moving down

do you think for one second that if shogun was the LHW champion, silva would be stepping down to WW or would he go up to LHW?? exactly..... if u ask me, silva is pulling a bitch move here

i know silva is loved on thisforum, and rightly so.... but can no one else see that this is a bitch move??

Thankfully this isn't boxing

I think people want the GSP fight because once/if Silva moves up in weight he won't be going back, ever. So again, once/if Silva fights GSP people will be screaming for the Jones fight (If he's still champion by then)

The GSP vs. Silva fight was something that people wanted way before Silva vs. Jones anyways, and they're closer to each other in weight so it makes sense to me

Am I the only one who is not that interested in Silva vs GSP?

Silva vs Jones is a much better fight IMO.

Watching GSP lie on top of Silva for 25 minutes doesnt fill me with a great amount of excitment.

If Pacquiao was Lightweight and Mayweather moved down to fight him, with testing and money not being an issue, he'd get the up most respect from me, and I'm completley anti-Mayweather.

I dont see this as a "bitch move". He knows GSP isn't coming to MW anytime soon so he is willing to go wherever he needs to in order to make the fight happen.

I' be very excited. GSP's top game is a lot different than Sonnens as in he'd actually do damage and not try to keep himself busy enough. That and GSP mixes his TD up with strikes and Silva can end a fight in the blink of an eye.

This fight is not going to happen at WW or MW, it's going to be a catchweight so the loser can keep his title and the winner will get the #1 P4P spot that nobody really cares about. At least I don't.

of course it's a catchweight fight.

Neither guy wants to leave his division. And for Silva it would probably be impossible to make 170.
