And 185? There is a possibility they may fight at 185? Do you have a link? I haven't heard that.
he busted his knee and that set things back nearly 2 years, and no there's no possibility of them fighting at 185 but GSP talked a lot about how he'd put on weight permanently if he moved up.

It was a setback.

Then it healed. He said he was definatly 100%. He then went through a whole training camp that included extensive work with Tiger MT doing tons of kicks. Then he got in the cage and it held up for 5 whole rounds better than his face.

If he is still deciding then fine. But when your camp comes out and says yea we are ready if you go to 170. It seems as if they really don't want the fight.

So if Anderson makes 170 and wins. Then what? Do we think ANderson is going to stay at 170 and defend that title? The whole talk of 170 is absurd really. It would be funny if ANderson won it though, then said he didn't even want the title when Dana tries to put it on him.

If Anderson went to 170 it probably wouldn't be a title fight, logically it wouldn't make sense. It's not like there's a title at a catchweight either. If anderson won then he'd still be the best fighter in the world.

If it was at 170 it would be a title fight.

BJ Penn issued the challenge. And BJ Penn made the adjustments necessary to follow through with his challenge. Now Silva is the challenger. And if he wants this fight so badly, he can do the same.

People love to act as though GSP picked on poor, little BJ, but BJ called out and went after GSP - not the other way around.

If he truly wants the fight, seems weird that he wants it at 170. If he loses in a catchweight fight or a MW fight, at least he gets to go back to his own weight. What happens if Silva wins the WW belt?

No. But it is logical.

So GSP gets KTFO at 170. While the other guy too weighs in at 170....and yet he is still called the UFC 170 champ?

You think Dana would let that possibly happen?

I'm just being logical.

He drops it off at the local Burger King and lets Chael claim his prize.

I understand the strategy for GSP to have Silva at 170. It will weaken his body and make him susceptible to the fast double leg takedown. It's highly intelligent strategy from GSP, one of the world's greatest fighters. I think highly of Anderson Silva but if he goes to 170 GSP will kill him i'm afraid.
