Everyone else he's fought has always been a WW fighter, or somebody like Miller and Fitch who have fought at WW, MW, LHW...

I believe Sherk dropped down to LW after the GSP fight, but he had over 30 fights under his belt at WW.

Look at who else GSP has fought... Shields, KOS, Hardy, Alves, Serra, Huges, Trigg, etc.

You're really not making much sense dude..
Matt Serra didn't fight at LW?

Serra and Sherk were both 5'6 midgets. One with a 67 inch reach the other with a massive 68 inch reach.

What don't you get? I am saying to you. He had 2 fights vs. Penn (2 of his biggest wins) 2 fights vs. Serra (1 he lost, other was one of his bigger wins), he foght Sherk once (considered a good win by GSP). Am simply saying 5 of his "good wins" have been against midgets or undersized men. So for anyone to say Anderson is picking on a smaller fighter...is ridiculous. Yea, he is picking on the #2 P4P fighter. Poor GSP. Lets treat GSP as if he is a 22 year old fighter who isn't good when it comes to Silva.

Hey if GSP doesn't want to whatever. I'm just pointing out he has built his name off over matched and very smaller fighters pretending they were WWs. Jon Jones fights guys giving up 4 inches in height, 15-25lbs, and at a foot reach disadvantage each time he defends his title.

But the only time anyone ever complains about size is when ANderson is brought up. I find it odd.

If Anderson wants GSP, he knows where to find him. At 170.

And if all you guys want Bones/Anderson....you all know where Bones can find him...185.

But I'm sure you will say neither needs to happen. And we should watch all 3 of them beat some more manufactured contenders.

On one hand people say he is too big. The other hand they say he should go to 170 if he wants to fight him. Makes a ton of sense. Obviously you don't believe Anderson is that big.

Only Silva has gone up to 205 multiple times now...

I don't really care who's big or who's small. If Silva wants GSP as badly as he claims, he knows what he has to do. GSP put it out there. 170.

I really have no clue what Anderson fighting at 205 before has to do with anything? And BJ Penn fought at HW before. Does that mean he should be more inclined to fight HW than Jon Jones who has never been at HW? So because Anderson gets fat and has fought a few times at 205 that means what?

Sure he does. But it would also be nice if GSP just said no I am not fighting Anderson. Then Anderson would just figure something else out.

I miss the old days of fighting. Fighters weren't afraid to lose so much. Weight wasn't everything.

Don't worry, I'll do you the favor, Munoz is overrated/finished by Hamill, close fight with Maia ignoring the fact he cut 32 lbs in 11 days and Boetsch is overrated, fluke win over Okami so when Weidman handles him that win won't mean nothing either, oh and Bisping/Vitor starch Weidman even though Vitor struggles against wrestlers and Bisping's only big win is Stann who can't wrestle.

And of course, Weidman has less fights than Anderson title defenses and can't sell PPV's.

Anything else I miss?

smh.

Again... if Anderson wants the fight as badly as he claims, he can go to 170. He even said in an interview that he'd be willing to make that cut. And were he to do so, I've little doubt GSP would fight him. You call out someone in a lower weight class, especially when he's out with a career altering injury, then you make the adjustments necessary to make the fight happen. Simple as.

Anderson wants the fight bad. He is the only one of the 3 that can go below his weight class. He makes his weight class easier than anyone according to Dana. Dana said he makes that with no problem what so ever.

He wants it bad but he isn't making 170. So he will just do something else. He offered. GSP declined. That is fine. Not many times can you pit the #1 vs the #2. But oh well. I will hold out for the hopes of Jones/Anderson after Jones gets done doing a reality show and backing up the division. Not sure if Anderson taking on Bones would be fair to teh Machida/Hendo winner. Jones has many challenges at 205. Perhaps Anderson will just retire.

Maia and Marquardt made 170. Who's to say Silva can't? He's tall, but his body is built for going up and down in weight. Granted there's his age. Anyway, we're all jumping the gun. Just because GSP shied away from talks of a super-fight after a nearly 18 month layoff and what I can only assume was a very painful bout with Carlos Condit doesn't mean he won't consider the matter in a few weeks, a month, or what-have-you. I might not be so quick to talk about facing the number one striker in MMA whilst I currently look and feel like I just went through a car windshield either.
