Not the brightest bunch on the forum.

Silva has fought at 205 and done just fine, GSP has never fought above 170, and is quite a bit smaller than Silva.

If Anderson has nothing left to prove then why does he want to fight GSP so bad? A lot of "p4p" lists actually have GSP at #3, behind Silva and JBJ. JBJ would be the more challenging fight, and it infuriates me to see the supposed #1 fighter duck away from his biggest challenge yet.
The fact Anderson went three times to LHW is his green card to go down to WW any time he pleases. SURE Anderson vs Jones is what we all want to see, but first things first. Seniority matters and when we first heard about a superfight betwen Anderson and GSP NO ONE in this forum had any clue Jon Bones Jones was. Seniors first, kids later.

Ridiculous to believe Anderson is ducking Jones. Why so many forget Jones aways said he didn't want to fight Anderson? If Jones calls out Anderson and Anderson refuses, then you can talk about ducking.

Money wise this sequence makes all sense. If Anderson fights Jones first, winning or losing, a fight against GSP, that today is said to be not appealing for many already, would be very hard to sell.

Agree with this. Everyone can get back to me when Jones or GSP moves weight once.

Who cares who Anderson fought at 205. He made a former champ of that sad division look like a fool. A straight fool. A man who beat Rampage and Shogun.

he can do as he pleases. His main home in his MMA career has been at 185. A division he can make EASY. A division that he is willing to go UNDER.

Yet he is "too big".

That's right. Come get me, America.
I say have it in Dallas for this exact reason. We get to see the best two fighters on the planet fight on neutral ground. Don't give homefield advantage to either man, this thing will sell out no matter where it is!

I still don't think Texas would sell out GSP/Silva.

Dana can charge the most insane ticket prices in Toronto, and go to sleep knowing it will sell out in hours, and he doesn't even need to promote the fight.

It isn't going to happen guys. Not unless Silva drops to 170.

Does not sound to me like GSP wants that Anderson fight.
