I don't think Silva would enter the cage and challenge him. He doesn't seem to be this type of guy. At least not directly.

Did I asked you if Bones called out Anderson already? My memory keeps failing me...

Which one is it?, last week it was announced A.Silva and J.Jones were in negotiations to fight. I would much rather see Silva and Jones fight b/c that would be more of a fight. GSP is my fav fighter and I know AS will thrash him.....

As a fan of MMA myself it has nothing to do w/ any1 proving themselves but rather the 2 best fighters in MMA fighting against each other (this is why I dont watch boxing anymore). I personally believe more people would be interested in an A.Silva/Bones fight b/c that would be more competitive. Also, despite the size difference I think Silva would find a way to win.....

Still not believing a word about any Anderson Silva super fight until the papers are signed.

I still just worry that GSP is much to small for Anderson who can make 205 with relative ease.

Top 7 Favorite Fighters at the moment

1. Forrest Griffin
2. Clay Guida
3. Shane Carwin
4. Jon Fitch
5. Chuck Liddell
6. Wanderlei Silva
7. Chris Leben

As an Anderson fan, I don't need this fight to happen. I know what will happen. I DO think Jones is an actual challenge but realistically, at his age, he doesn't really have anything left to prove.

And picking a side for these superstars ...it's all sematics.

Anderson hasn't beaten top quality opponents...

GSP got knocked out by Matt Serra and doesn't finish fights...

Jon Jones has beaten has beens and smaller fighters...

You can make any of them sound less impressive. But if we as fight fans get to see any of them fight, then we're all winners.

I just don't trust what Dana White says these days. Didn't he literally JUST say that Silva would fight Bones in 2013???
Nailed to perfection.

Lets see if Jones will be able to maintain 205 when he is above 35 years old. Anderson used to be as skinny as Condit, but most of casual fans(not referring to you) will forget or never knew how he skinny was before.

Now, to make weight is an special gift+dedication, but haters will still use that against Anderson, who came from 170, stablished at 185 and even at 38 can go up to 205 and back never failing the scale. Anyway, it's not like he is bulking muscles to make 205. GSP is a way more muscular individual than Anderson.

Now if he fools another MW contender, ppl complain. Now if he faces GSP, ppl complain. Geez...

I hope Dana is wearing Diapers come fight night on Saturday. Someone should zoom in on Dana's face if GSP wins. You'll see the look of a man just jizzing all over his pants at the thought of all the mad $$$$$$$ he'll rake over this super fight. Never mind if it's a good fight, or that AS is too big for GSP. This will be the MMA fight of our generation, our Ali vs Frazier. Boxing has yet to showcase Mayweather vs Pacman but if this super fight were to happen a lot of new casual fans would jump on the bandwagon. Making the sport maybe a bit more palatable to those who find it barbaric.

Should be in the biggest venue in the U.S.

Cowboys Stadium would be awesome and is my pick.

Too bad NY isn't open for business. This fight at the Garden? That would be badass.

Then again, Toronto would be cool because I am fairly close to Toronto, and I could possibly go and not even have to stay the night.

If Georges does win, make him come to 170, don't give into that bully's demands. If he wants to pick on the little guy make him drain himself to the point he can't defend himself and teach him a lesson and expose him to the entire world.
