I'd bet he has a much better idea of what their actual weights are than any of us would so I doubt he's exaggerating at all.

234 is Silva's walk around weight, when he is OUT OF SHAPE. Rampage walks around at 250, but that doesn't mean he is some freakin' huge heavyweight.

I'm sure Silva stated sometime back that he starts cutting down from 205 pounds for his fights at 185. Furthermore, he weighed in at 202 pounds for the fight against Bonnar. I'm sure GSP is just trying to exaggerate the weight difference between him and Silva just to convince the fans that he is getting the short end of the stick if he takes the fight against Silva.

Also, GSP's trainers said he fought against Shields at 192-194 pounds.

Not that I want to see the Silva-GSP fight anymore though. I just found it funny that GSP is trying to make it look like there is such a HUGE weight difference between them two. If he doesn't want the fight, just say it. No need to come up with so many ridiculous remarks and excuses.

If they're so close in weight, Silva won't mind dropping to 170 then?

What if adding 10-15 pounds of muscle is of no benefit to GSP? Silva is a naturally bigger man, you can't look at this like it's an even playing field.

If they are so different in weight, GSP's camp wouldn't even have suggested Silva drop down to 170 then?

Pretty sure Silva said he might go down to 170 for the fight.

Once again, I reiterate that I have no interest in seeing this fight. I admit, Silva is the bigger man. However, the size difference is definitely not as big as everyone think it is. If the fight happened at catchweight of 178, I'm pretty sure Silva would only be about 8~10 pounds heavier than GSP on fight night.

They said it to make a point - Silva is calling for the fight so go get GSP, don't expect GSP to do the hard part.

8-10 pounds may not seem like much to me and you, but when it's to the advantage of the best fighter ever it's a little bit more of an issue.

I think if GSP held his nerve he'd probably beat Anderson, but I sure as heck understand why he's being so cautious.

GSP is a great fighter, but such a little girl about certain things. He exaggerates so much as well, he used to say he was 190-193 now he is 188.

His camp just said the fight would have to be at 170. Now he says he would have to put on weight???

It is such a big deal that he would put on weight. But not a big deal that old man ANderson would have to cut much further down than he usually does.

Everything is "poor GSP".

Gets old.

I am so over this fight and have never really been calling for it. Give us GSP/Hendricks and Silva/Bisping and call it a day.
