does not want to fight silva now' he said so and the reason why on TLMEP, a french show. I would suggest you listen to it
I did not watch/listen to the show, but apparently his reason was if/when he beat Silva there would be nothing left to accomplish and he would have to then retire.

I really think GSP would be making a huge mistake fighting Silva. GSP is a business... and his business will lose a ton of its value if he loses to Silva.

GSP loses to current AS. I think he wants to see Anderson start to fade before he nuts up to the bar. It really doesn't make sense though, it'll be a big money fight for the both of them, and they still have enough for a potential rematch within the next couple years. It's not as if GSP hasn't rebounded well from his past losses.

mmanomad has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Anderson needs to make 170lbs and then it will have to happen. Otherwise I dont see why GSP should have to move up weight.

Just an awful excuse though.

gsp leaving $20+ mil on the table? Wow, that's like 4 regular title defense fights which is what, 2 years worth.
Catchweight fight loss wouldn't hurt his cache unless he got slaughtered.

It's obvious Floyd doesn't want to fight Pacman. We should just brand him as a coward and move on.

Damn...I do not believe it's a money issue either. He knows what he's up against. I wish he would say it out right something like this.

"I believe Anderson Silva is the best and true #1 P4P in the planet. It will be a very difficult match for me and yes I would be scared not just about losing, but losing my sponsorship and hurting my legacy. I'm a man and I will admit this. Look at what he's done in the 185 and LHW division."

In the end I respect GSP nonetheless. He's a great ambassador for the sport, but I wish this fight would happen...BADLY.

*NOTE* We saw BJ vs Hughes x3 and GSP x2.
Vitor at 185, 205 LHW champ, 225champ (pre 2000 UFC).
Randy - 205 champ + 225 champ

Who cares really. It's a fun fight but makes little sense. Anderson has been fighting at 205 a few times now, if anything he should go after Jon Jones. Meanwhile GSP has a guy on his division who's knocking contenders out left and right. A fight with Hendricks makes much more sense.
