Fact? Hmmm... interesting definition.

Do you know what "run of the mill" means? If so, please tell me more...

Hendricks is a valid challenger for the WW title, but for an MMA fan to say that they'd prefer to see him fight GSP instead of A.Silva is completley baffling to me. It's like a racist saying he doesnt want to see discrimination.

I want to see both you tool. Both fights are with 2 fighters separated by 1 weight class. I want to see both ******* fights.

Quit following me around ya goofball.
The thing is you are showing your ignorance of mma in true stride right here. Anyone that understands skillsets and how mma strategies works knows GSP has little to no chance against Anderson, this is based on objective analysis. When you know how much better Anderson is than GSP and you add to the fact that he's bigger, well if someone has to explain it to you you're already lost.

I won't even bother getting into it because your hate fueled ignorant rants aren't even worth a response, go on in your fairy tale world getting angry when people correct your ignorance. don't be surprised when you don't get the responses you hope for when you talk like you do though. Get over yourself, I'm not even sure what your username is, I just responded to the comment.

edit: johnyg... I've never even seen you before, do you have mental issues?

To be fair, what chance did Chael have? Anderson's MAJOR downside is his takedown defence. As much as I love his fighting, Anderson is heavily overrated on here. Against a good wrestler (who stays awake long enough to go for a TD), will usually manage to take him down without great effort. If they have good enough sub defence (and arent gassed (Lutter), rocked (Hendo) or have shit sub def (Sonnen), they can probably get around his Jitz. His BJJ is his most overrated asset to me, with his only impressive performance off his back being in the second Sonnen fight to me. If GSP can take the fight down, I think he has a huge chance of winning.

To me, Sonnen's high points are GSP's low. Sonnen rushes takedowns and it works. He walked in against Anderson and took him straight down. GSP works for it, uses his jab and sets everything up. I dont think he'd get the oppertunity to take it down.

None the less, he's probably the best wrestler ever in the UFC, and Anderson is very weak to wrestling.

Pretty much, although I think Anderson will be looking for the fight now to cap off his career.

Anderson hardly ever actually tries last time he did was in the second round against Okami where he was moving and he looked like he was actually mad. Anderson doesn't try very hard until he's in danger which is almost never. He is the cockiest fighter around, if he truly tried to stop the takedowns he'd do a lot better but he doesn't give a shit. I'd say he's underrated because most fights he comes out just to screw around

Anderson Vs Sonnen just sums it all up though. Not only would he have wanted to keep it standing as he was being put in danger, but in the second fight he was going in to murder his opponent. What happened? He got taken straight down and held their. His BJJ looked improved, but in the early moments he didnt do anything to get out of the situation. He stopped a takedown or two in the second, but if you compair that to how Bisping did against Sonnen's wrestling, it just shows that Anderson's wrestling skillset isn't up to the level it is merited with.

Smart move by GSP, he career is still very young. He most likely will lose to Anderson, and he has a lot more to lose than Anderson does. Anderson could lose that fight, then retire and still be known as the best ever. GSP, with a loss with devalue not only his own worth but that of the entire WW division in a way. We all know weight classes exist for a reason, no need to accentuate it.

Yeah I doubt any of these fights ever happen, these guys make too much money, for example GSP's got deals with Coke, Gatorade, Bacardi, Under Armour, Google, Affliction, and is raking in 15 million a year.

Why go up and fight Anderson when he can keep doing what he's been doing for the last couple of years? Same thing applies to Anderson and Jones, although I've never heard a report on how much they make.
