GSP say's he wants this fight at catchweight 178/180 lbs + GSP's "camp" saying they want Anderson to drop to 170 = More roadblocks keeping this superfight from happening

...just as I predicted

Calling the UFC WW champion a 'wuss' and a 'little girl' as you sit comfortably behind your computer screens. I sure wish I was as tough as some of you.
no kidding. Everyone jumping on GSP for not wanting to fight Anderson at MW when Anderson just annihilated a bigger, stronger and better wrestler are ignorant fools. Seriously, where do you people come from with this garbage? saying he's afraid and he's not a real fighter, he's too safe... blah blah blah. GSP just fought Condit and got his face mangled and people are calling him a wuss, I was unaware there were lil girls in cage fighting. The only way a fight with Anderson is even competitive is if it's at 170, that's why Zahabi said the only way it's fair is if it's at 170.

There are a million haters that just want to see GSP get destroyed, I on the other hand just want to watch good fights. GSP at 185 against Anderson is not a fight, it's an ass kicking.

I'm a huge gsp fan and asking Anderson to go down to 170 is stupid. The longer this goes on, the less and less i'm interested in the fight. At this point I could care less for it.

2. Dan "Hollywood" Henderson
3. George "Rush" St Pierre

Not sure why he would care if Penn came up. The whole thing here is come to 170 if you want to fight GSP.

bla bla bla, Anderson could be a LW and he would easily KHTFO anyway, its not his size advantage that will win him the fight, its his striking, thats it

he can be 300 pounds on fight night he still wont stop GSPs TDs, but AS will always catch him at some point during the fight

The problem is not that he's afraid of Anderson, or doesn't want to fight Anderson. The problem is that he has yet to come out and admit that he has no interest in fighting Anderson. Every time this superfight comes close to fruition, GSP, or GSP's camp always comes out with some reason why the fight should be delayed beyond reason, or can't happen.

Here's are just some that aren't hard to find...

GSP can't fight Anderson at 185 lbs at the moment, because if that where to happen, he has to put on muscle...



2:58 - 5:04


GSP can't fight Anderson at 170 lbs, because he wants the fight to happen at catchweight...

http://www.mixedmartialarts.com/news...-a-catchweight

Firas Zahabi wants this fight to be at 170 lbs or else it wouldn't be fair...

http://www.mmafighting.com/ufc/2012/...0-lbs-would-be

If GSP truly had the desire to have this fight happen, there wouldn't be so many roadblocks. If he would just agree to have the fight happen, and all the weight negotiations would take care of themselves. Even in the primetime, he basically admits that he's terrified of losing.

Just speaking for myself, if GSP comes out and say's he is not interested in fighting Silva, I will still respect him as one of the top fighters in the world. Why GSP hasn't come out and said it yet, I don't know. Maybe he's afraid of losing fans. Maybe he's afraid that he may lose some sponsorship. Maybe he doesn't want Silva to be upset and call him a *****. Silva may really want this fight to happen, but if someone isn't interested in fighting him, he won't try to bully him into making the fight. And hopefully that would kill all talks of a superfight.

because he hasn't decided, you know, like how he said he hasn't decided and he has to think about it. fighting Anderson he will be going in the underdog, he just came off a near career ending injury and I can understand him being hesitant to take on the best fighter in the world. Why does he have to say one way or the other? Why can't he think about it? Fact of the matter is he will get destroyed at 185 by Anderson, Rich Franklin got his face rearranged by the man. You don't decide something like that on a whim.

What whim? Dude, it has been like 3 years. They were talking about this fight for a long time.

And 185? There is a possibility they may fight at 185? Do you have a link? I haven't heard that.

I haven't heard every interview GSP has done, but I have never heard him say he wouldn't fight Anderson. I mean it's only been three days since his fight with Condit. If I was GSP I would be very vague about my intentions in that fight as well. He knows the fans want it, the UFC wants it, and Anderson seems to want it. So if I am the only thing stopping it I might just try and seem a little uninterested to get the UFC to pay me a bunch of money for the fight.
