Something certainly isn't adding up, if Anderson doesn't feel like there's "worthy" fights for him at 185, then just leave, man up and go fight at 205 let the guys who wanna fight for a World Title and defend the World Title handle that situation or keep being a little bitch and pick on the guys 15 lbs lighter than you.



Cruz isn't gonna get smashed, he tooled Faber and Jorgensen way worse than Barao did and when the time comes Barao's gonna be pouting like a little girl after 25 minutes of getting dominated by the Dominator.

And a God amongst men? Yeah because he only fights favorable fights for him, Leites, Maia, Bonnar, GSP, Cote, Leben, Irvin? Yeah, no wonder he's a God amongst men, he only has four good wins in the UFC and one of them was so pilled up out of his mind he couldn't even fight. Jones already is a far more impressive champ than Anderson.
I take it you haven't heard what Hendo thinks of the situation? You don't think Gustaf would take a shot? Would Tex turn it down? That is not the only reason he is fighting Sonnen, I hope you are smarter than this.

Rashad wants no part of him. If he did he would move down. He isn't getting a title shot at 205 anytime soon.

So now because GSP hurt his knee he is going to have a bad knee his whole career? If he says he is 100% and it holds up just fine vs. Condit....then how can you say he has a hurt knee?

What is the big problem with Anderson wanting to fight GSP at a catchweight. #1 vs. #2? Why can't he do that now. Defend his 185 belt a couple times? Then fight Bones. Then retire?

Why is it a huge deal? Perhaps to make you and others happy he should fight GSP in the morning. Shower, fight Weidman and Bisping at once. Grab a bite to eat, then fight Bones before bed. You all seem to be in such a hurry to get all these fights over with. Acting like because he wants to beat GSP's ass at a very fair catchweight that he can't ever do the Bones fight.

What if behind closed doors he told Bones that they should hype up the fight by saying they won't fight. Make mas anticipation and talk...then bank on huge it becomes by the time they decide to fight. Why does everything have to happen right this second?

The booking is getting kinda stupid lately, and I'd understand if while the booking was getting stupid they were building up some stars at 205, or 185,

but at 205 their giving up a freaking PIT FIGHTER LOL as a world beater. Jee you might as well start pushing a Red Devil fight club fighter not named fedor. The pit produced one good fighter. One, that's it.

at 185 many of the contenders are kinda stuck on permanant rott. It's like bj penn and 155 all over again. it's the same reason Tyson griffin was run into the ground fighting top contenders till he was to shop warn to make a series run at the title.

It's bull shit and it's bad for you.

If I were Anderson I would agree to an interim title while he does other stuff..why should he care anyway. Everyone knows he is the best and any time he wants he can get the 'title' shot and win it back.

Let Bisping/Vitor/Weidman/Whoever battle it out for the interim and then come back and beat whoever is left standing, if Silva can even be bothered, or just forget MW and go for GSP and Jones instead. It's not like he's losing respect or money by vacating the title, especially if it's for an interim title.

When did Anderson turn down Bisping, Vitor, Boetsch, and Rashad?

I'm almost positive Silva would fight Bisping or Rashad and would certainly be justified in turning down Vitor.

I fully agree with Bisping. I mean the second I heard Anderson is thinking of taking a break again, I thought maybe he should relinquish his title. Therefore, in my mind Bisping's idea makes a lot of sense. You can't be the Champ, and be taking lay offs all the time.


1. BJ "The Prodigy" Penn
2. Dan "Hollywood" Henderson
3. George "Rush" St Pierre

There is no point in making a interim belt as it would be meaningless. Vitor Belfort got front kicked in the face and barely touch silva in their fight. Anderson Silva would destroy Bisping without breaking a sweat.

Even though what Bisping is saying makes sense, a interim middle weight belt would be meaningless as chael's fake belt.

THe UFC should either ask Silva to give up his belt or let things stay the same way. It makes no sense creating a second belt, look at the LW division BJ Penn won that belt, moved up in weight then defended that LW belt like 15 months after his last defense.
