I didn't mean to jump down your throat. But it just urks me when people act like Anderson won't fight Bones like GSP won't fight Anderson. You can't say that because Bones isn't offering a catchweight. I don't like when people make that claim then totally leave out the part where Bones doesn't want that fight either.

Everyone can have their own opinion. But lets not leave out key facts for the sake of trying to make a point. Anderson isn't ducking Bones anymore than Bones is ducking Anderson.
I've got to be honest here, I'll be amazed if we ever see either bones/ silva or silva/GSP.

Regardless of who doesn't want to fight who.

I think Dana is hell bent on getting a superfight in.

Anderson fighting Weidman or Belcher wouldn't do many view. He doesn't want Anderson to retire without geting at least 1 huge payday out of him again. Bisping/Anderson would probably do ok numbers. I think Dana makes 1 happen. I think Anderson himself is going to want that Bones fight more than ever when it comes time. When great fighters end their careers they usually go out on biggest fights of their careers. Anderson Silva is looking for a big pay day to take with him into retirement.

I wish Rashad would man up and go to 185. That would be a fun fight.

Perhaps Bones beats Chael. Machida beats Dan. Bones beats Machida again. So that leaves the door open for Anderson to get somke revenge for Machida...and Machida won't be looking at a title shot so Andersonwouldn't feel in the way.

Anderson/Bones for the 205 title SB weekend of 2014. Anderson leaves with a KO. Dumps the belt and retires. Bones goes to HW to start a new goal. They do a mini tourney for the 205 title.

That is at least what I am thinking about.

Honestly, I think Silva is a master troll with media and I sorta enjoy it.

I think he's just been hammered with questions on superfights for years that he's just throwing out whatever the media wants to hear at this point.

He'll go from not fighting either, to being willing to fight. He'll go from saying no to saying maybe to saying yes. He'll make crazy remarks like "it'll cost the UFC 50% of their earnings for a Jones fight" (or something similar)

I honestly believe he's just having fun with the whole process, because he always gives that charming Silva smile with each answer.

Really what it boils down to, regardless what Dana, GSP, Jones, or Silva says, it's going to take a fight being officially booked on paper before I believe any of it. Words at this point really don't hold weight for me anymore.

What the heck does fair have to do with anything?

The difference is Hendricks is only slightly "bigger" than GSP but regularly fights at WW. Silva is noticably bigger than GSP and regularly fights at MW.

If GSP fights Silva they'll both weigh-in exactly the same the day before the fight.

By fight time, Silva would likely have a 15-20 lbs advantage over GSP.

It's neither fair nor unfair; it's simply reality. Size matters. That's why there is weight classes.

Silva's height and reach would be much bigger problems for GSP to solve than whatever weight Anderson walks into the octagon at.

Cause this is his career. You dont just play games with your career to "test" yourself.

Im not a GSP fan by any means but even i know that Anderson is much bigger in length, height, weight. Hell i remember as clear as day how Anderson tossed Rich Franklin around.

According to stats. Anderson holds a 2.5 or 3 inch reach advantage.

I am no expert. But if they met at 178 Anderson would be around 200 on fight night and GSP would be his usual 190-193.

Height may play a factor. Carlos Condit is 6'2 as well.

In any superfight someone is going to be at a size disadvantage. Fact is Anderson doesn't really use strength or size to beat anyone. He uses accuracy, footwork, and technical skills.

People seem to want to talk about Anderson's advantages. Lets actually talke about GSP's big advantage.

GSP cuts a lot of weight to make 170. If he had to only go to 178 he would hold more strength than usual and would not have to try so hard to make weight. That process would be a breeze compared to his usual routine.

Anderson at 178 would come in drained. Imagine if GSP came in at 164? You don't tthink that would take something out of him? Anderson will have less strength than he has at 185.

So in the realm of things GSP holds advantages in a catchweight fight. Do we think Anderson would have stayed as fresh and have enough energy to finish Chael if he had to cut 7 more lbs for that fight. I would say no.

If you don't want GSP - Silva to happen you are not a true fan of the sport and don't want to see MMA succeed.

All the arguing and nonsense aside my bet is that GSP's camp tells him not to take the fight after what happened in GSP's last fight and what happened in Anderson's last 3 where he's humiliated his opponents. My guess is we see Bones vs. Anderson some time in the fall of 2013 after Jones demolishes Sonnen and Silva beats another contender.

I don't get the intrigue behind GSP vs. Silva when Bones vs. Silva is so much more exciting and makes more sense.
