Because the problem itself is that he hasn't done that in the first place.
The difference between Silva not wanting to fight Jones and GSP not wanting to fight Silva is that Silva has said straight up "I don't want to fight Jones" while GSP is making up hundreds of thousands of excuses as to why the fight between him and AS must be delayed.
When asked about a possible fight against AS at 185:
"I need to build the muscle up to 185 so that I can stay at that weight. It will take 8 - 10 month."
When asked about a possible fight against AS at 170:
"I think it should be at 180 so Silva won't be drained and I won't have the advantage."
When asked about a possible fight against AS at 180:
"I want to clean out the division first because there are so many challengers here at 170."
While he may be right about the re-emergence of competition at 170, those challengers won't be going anywhere if a fight were to be made between him and Anderson Silva, so all he's really doing is delaying the fight to be made very possibly past Silva's prime.
Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with only focusing on your next opponent. But if he would just come out and say that he doesn't want to fight Anderson Silva, and stop making these petty excuses, there would be no need for any speculation of a possible fight between the two.
That's not really a bitch move imo. He obviously wants to be the best at 170, and there's nothing wrong with that.
