The biggest possible fight in MMA right now would be AS vs JBJ, and I for 1 believe Silva could take him. I am GSP's biggest fan, but A.Silva would wreck him.....

"I'm 37-years old and I feel like I need to be honest and to continue what I've built which is keep defending my belt at 185," said Silva.
I guess that Is why you decided to take a fight against a 205 gatekeeper, or how you want to fight a WW that has been through a major surgery and out of the game for a year and a half. Even your "team mate" Lyoto wants that fight.

No, Weidman should be your next opponent at 185, but somehow you feel he is not "worthy".
Oh well, since you took this 205'er I guess you are entitled to another 6-8 months before you are forced to defend that MW title again. And with "luck" Weidman will be involved in another fight right around that time.

Enough pressure and it may happen. This will be the third foray into the LHW division. If the LHW title holder makes a few disparaging comments it can always change the dynamic of their relationship. Anderson already rooted for Vitor probably because of the fact he's Brazillian. I give it a 30% chance. Look if the LHW division is cleaned out for the next 12 months and Anderson fights GSP within that time frame and defends his belt. Who or what else is there...

Each getting paid a cool million guaranteed will help ease their decision + PPVs.

They will do 1.5 - two million PPVS.

Easily. Everyone is going to tune in. The people who wanna see Anderson lose (about a million buyers according to his last fight), the people who wanna see Bones lose (not sure there's a number big enough), the hardcores obviously and the casuals because they know both names.

if Dana throws enough money their way im sure anderson would take this fight as his last fight.

I dont know how true this is but i read on a brazilian site that dana wanted to make anderson vs machida, and they asked for 7 million each and dana said forget it lol

now even if thats just BS, im guessing if dana offered 5 million to andy and JBJ they would fight...Anderson has always been a whore for $ why doesnt Dana just pay the man?
