I don't see the problem. At this rate 10 more fights means 10-15 more years for him.

Even injury free, if he fights twice per year, thats 5 more years.

I suppose I'm still grasping this two fights a year average from, especially from champions... things have changed a lot.

I hope no one didn't believe this, Mike Straka is a known GSP hater, this guy's basically a Sherdogger with credentials.
Luckly(or not) I said "presumably"...

If true I find it funny that GSP says he needs time to put on weight. And how much of a size disadvantage. ANd how it isn't "right time" to do this. And how there are plenty of challenges at 170.

But now all that can be erased if the money is right. That is sort of pathetic and makes all his size claims seem stupid.

If it is true that is.

All the Champs have fought twice this year except GSP, Aldo, and Cruz who have been hurt. Junior's about to have his second fight, Mighty Mouse fought three times and Bendo's about to have his third fight this year.

Perfectly reasonable imo, both guys could just leave the UFC and co-promote the event themselves at this point, their names are big enough.

TriStar and BlackHouse present: GSP vs Silva sponsored by McDonalds Coca-Cola Nike and whoever else wants in.

and fill the undercard with nobodies.

Have Bas and the Voice commentate and have the fight either in Brazil or Montreal. Easy.

I say if he actually finishes Anderson, give the guy these 50 million with interests.
Make this a pre fight agreement just to spice things up.

Nice out of the box thinking. Event subsidized by massive corporate sponsorships. There's a break even point. The UFC will have to do some number crunching to see what they can do.

I do reckon this is a msg from GSP's camp to the UFC though.
Kinda like when Anderson said he wants 50% of the UFC to fight the LHW title holder...lolz!
