What crying? GSP clearly doesn't want the fight. He probably suspects that Anderson would beat him, perhaps even soundly. And he's content to reign over WW as... you know... the WW Champion. End of story.

I get that fans want this. Heck, I want it. But you can't make any man fight against his will. A GSP who feels pressured into this thing is not going to perform well against an already Godly opponent.

If he doesn't want it, why doesn't he man up and just clearly say "no".

He has led people on for years. Saying maybe if he puts on weight. Maybe this. I'll talk to my trainers. Just say yes or no.

Is it the fans or is it the haters that want this superfight?

I think the St.Pierre fans knows he`s going to loose, so they dont`t want this fight. And the haters? Well they just want St.Pierre to loose, and get him of his pedestal and say he`s just another lay and pray fighter.

Boooo!This is such a dumb matchup. GSP would get smashed, but that's not even the important thing. The important thing is that Johnny Hendricks has a super legitimate claim for title contention. He WRECKED John Fitch, who Georges himself was unable to finish. Furthermore, he's tallied off an impressive series of victories over top-shelf competition.

It's absolutely stupid to put the WW division on hold for a 'super fight' in which the outcome is all but predetermined. Not to mention how compelling a Hendricks-St Pierre matchup would be! Hendricks has a great wrestling pedigree -- possibly enough to defend some takedowns from the champion -- and he COULD knock GSP out beyond a shadow of a doubt. The amount of power he generates from unorthodox punches gives him a chance against anyone!

Also, Anderson needs to stop being a puss. If he wants a superfight, he should take on JBJ. If he wants to, idk, do his duty as the MW champion he should defend his title. He's an amazing fighter and I love him (he's the one who inspired me to do MMA), but he's seriously being a be-yotch right now.

Highly opinionated but out of touch with the current MMA scene.

Really don't understand when people talk like this.

Jones said he didn't want to fight Anderson. Yet Anderson is some how the only reason they aren't fighting now? He just said he wanted GSP then Bones.

GSP should just say no then, so Anderson can figure out what is next. Anderson is putting his self out there, if GSP doesn't want it then just say so. We all know GSP is a afraid to lose. He wants all the chips in his corner.

Explain how Anderson i being a bitch. What did he say to make you claim he is? GSP is being a bitch for not choosing what he wants and standing by it. He is riding the fence like a girl.

Anderson will probably fight Bones in the future. He said he wants to. So not sure what you are even talking about.

Last I read, Anderson was all "I dont wanna mess things up for Lyoto because that's his division." Apparently, I am out of the loop, which wouldn't surprise me. Yeah, I'm basically that guy -- not up to date, but vocal as hell.

Can I take 2 minutes to desribe how dumb this is?

Lets play hypothetical fantasy land for a minute. Say Anderson retired today and GSP moved to 185. Who would you expect to capture the belt at MW? I think Weidman would be a bad matchup for him. But most people would pick GSP or Weidman. So if GSP is good enough to be the #2 or #3 best MW in teh world....what is the problem? He would be a top 3 MW if he moved up. So why is it so unfair that he fights the #1 MW at a catchweight?

People must not think highly of GSP to think he has no shot. Even his fans must not think much of him. You take Cruz/Aldo meeting at 140. Aldo/Bendo meeting at 150. Bendo/GSP meeting at 165. Anderson/Jones meeting at 200. Jones/JDS meeting at 225. No one would call ANY of those catchweight fighst between champs unfair. Yet we gets to Anderson/GSP at 178 and all of a sudden it is the most unfair thing around.

That right there shows you how little faith fans have in GSP. He is the #2 P4P fighter in the whole world. Yet he is getting the baby treatment as to what he can handle and what he can't. If the #2 P4P fighter is so far away from the #1 P4P fighter....that right there says something about his ranking. Not a very good #2 P4P fighter when people think he has no chance of beating the #1 at a catch.

well considering they are just handing out 205 shots to Anderson's leftovers at 185 the division and whos division it is means a lot less.

Anderson doesn't want that fight. But if everyone else does and it will make big money then he is open to it. Unlike GSP.

GSP can hide at 170 all his life though. He will never be regarded as a certified badass like BJ Penn and others. He will go down as the safest fighter of all time. One of the most dominant champions that was so afraid to lose that it made him into a robot.
