Nate Marquardt, Yushin Okami and Mike Swick were in the mix at that point.

Marquardt and Okami then had a better claim to a title shot, marquardt was always up there and he had a lot of wins and not many losses than, same with okami who actually beat silva by DQ at that point, so again you weidman doesn't deserve it and beat someone good in a shallow division fools can look at these facts and shut it.

Literally nobody in the history of the UFC at that point had ever looked as good as Anderson did against Leben.

If GSP can choose his opponents, why can't Anderson? If Weidman is truly the best he'll beat whoever they put in front of him.

Because GSP cleaned out the division and didn't have the Patrick Cote, Thales Lettes, and Travis Lutters during his run. Also GSP is calling out a top five guy in Nick Diaz, not a 40 year old top 20 guy in Cung Le.

GSP is calling out a guy who hasn't won a fight in the UFC since October of 2011. Anderson is atleast calling out a guy who's on a 2 fight win streak in the UFC with one win against a former champ.

Don't kid yourself John- Dan Hardy, Thiago Alves and Jake Shields are hardly stellar opposition.

Lutter earnt his shot in the same way that Serra did, only Serra TKOed Georges and Anderson submitted a world class black belt in Lutter.

I don't support the Cung Le fight in any way, but if Anderson wants it, he should get it.

Most people know and understand Diaz is a top five guy, this is GSP picking one top five guy (Diaz(#4)) over another (Hendricks(#3)). Big difference would be if he said, no to Hendricks and chose to fight Mike Pierce or Mike Pyle.

Jake Shields, should have fought Anderson Silva wonder why that never happened . But he did go 5 years without a loss and then beat a top guy in Martin Kampmann.

Thiago Alves, in what universe did he not earn a title shot, he had wins over Hughes, Koscheck, Karo and Lytle that's four guys that were in the title mix!

Dan Hardy, yeah no kidding Dan Hardy didn't deserve his shot but I guess he was "due" the same way Bisping was. Funny how Michael Bisping deserves a shot with an ugly win over a fringe top ten guy in Brian Stann but Chris Weidman beats two top ten guys and he hasn't earned it.

Just because we know how good a fighter is doesn't mean they shouldn't have to win fights to earn shots.

It never happened because Okami played dead after getting worked by Andy, a fighter with a big heart wouldn't take a cheap win, they'd continue fighting.

Shields was hardly convincing in his victory over Kampmann.

I never claimed that Alves and the others didn't deserve their shots, I simply said they are subpar (just like you said Andy's 3 opponents were). Although you bringing that up implies that you think Leites and Cote didn't earn their shots, which is utterly ridiculous. Both were on big win streaks in the UFC at the time of their title shots.

Bisping wasn't deserving of a title shot and he didn't get one, if he had beaten Vitor it would be another story.

I'm not sure where you are going with most of this...

I'd hardly call three guys that are still with the UFC as subpar. Guys that have been cut after their fights with Silva, Lettes, Irvin, Cote(they brought him back), and Lutter those are guys I would consider "subpar".

You mean Alves who is 2-4 in his last 6?
Or Hardy who lost 4 in a row?
Shields has looked like dog poo.

Stop mentioning Lutter, I might aswell mention Serra who earned a shot the same way and TKOed GSP.

Why are you bringing up his circus fights at LHW? They are not relevant to the discussion at hand.

Not to mention Anderson fought these guys years ago, I doubt ALL of those guys will still be employed by Zuffa in a couple of years.

If you can't find similarities between the GSP and Anderson situations then I suggest you get your eyes checked my friend.

It is probably why Anderson is calling out Le.

He wanted the GSP fight. And GSP said he has plenty of contenders left at 170. So he chooses a man off a loss. Anderson probably felt that was pretty ridiculous. So Anderson is exercising his right to choose.

Anderson is pissed at GSP for not wanting to put on a mega fight.
