Exactly my friend BJ Penn talked a lot but he talked too much and it got him into trouble.

He is a wuss because he's afraid to lose. Not trying something for fear of failure = mental weakness in my opinion and therefore GSP is a wuss.

It's obvious that he's brave enough to step in the cage, nobody in their right mind can say that he's afraid to take a punch to the face.

And yeah, Rauno.. Firas did say it, but Firas isn't the Ed Soares type, him and GSP are best friends, if he has said this, i'm 96% sure GSP would have expressed those very same beliefs.

I'm a fan of GSP, and I think he can win but the more i read about this the more I think he's ducking the fight.

I don't understand why the UFC is so infatuated with these "super fights". Right now GSP, Silva and JBJ have many people thinking they are unbeatable and their current weight class. If they fight one of them has to lose...then what? Seems like it would devalue the championship if the guy is coming off a loss, even if that loss came at a different weight.

"I would want [Silva] to come down as close to 170 as possible if that was the case."

Key sentence from Firas; as close as possible. This is all just negotiations.

GSP typically weighs in at 170 and fights at 185 lbs. He does not balloon to 190+ as many have suggested.

Silva would likely balloon to 200-205 lbs.

An extra 15-20 lbs is a significant advantage when you are talking about the two best p4p fighters in the world.

GSP's camp will try to minimize that advantage as much as possible.

Silva's camp will try to maximize that advantage as much as possible.

At this point, I doubt GSP even truly believes he wins this fight. And that means he's already lost to me. Without a Chael mindset, your not beating Anderson.

The answer is simple...money.

Your correct if they fight one of them has to lose.

You say..then what?

I say...so what?

Jones almost lost to Belfort via armbar, Silva got his a$$ handed to him for 4-1/2 rounds and GSP was in deep waters after the HK from Condit.

The perception that these fighters are unbeatable is simply that...a perception.

The reality is any of them could lose any fight they are in; it's merely a matter of probability.

And if that happens the massive payday from the superfight is gone as is any perception that Silva, GSP or Jones is unbeatable.

If BJ Penn said GSP had to come down to 163 to fight him the internet would explode. And BJ would be called a coward.

BJ is a smaller lightweight than Georges is a welterweight.

At first I was like 'WTF' and then realized, this is pretty true.

Still, 178 sounds like a perfect weight for them to fight at.

I'm not trying to get into weight cutting facts. Because none of us know exactly what they weigh at certain times and what they would weigh in the cage.

But are you saying if they met at 170. Anderson would put on 30-35 lbs over night and GSP would put on 15?
