This is obviously just Dana attempting to keep the interest in the GSP/Silva fight. I thought GSP/Hendricks was already on?

Lmao you guys would rather watch GSP vs Johnny Hendricks then GSP vs Anderson Silva??? LOL. You guys can not be serious....
Im not very in to Super Fights and dont mind one bit if GSP vs Silva never happens but holy **** if it does happen il be 100x more excited then i will for Hendricks.

Also to me Hendricks comes off as the biggest douche bag whenever i watch a post fight conference. I still remember the conference after the Fitch fight....

So i hope he does get passed over cause i just will find it funny. (My evil side is slightly showing isnt it??)

Hendricks can KO GSP, Anderson WILL KO GSP and it will be anticlimatic and then I will never want to watch a GSP fight again because of that, it achieves nothing. At least if it happens in the same division it doesn't mess anything up

I really don't think this argument carries a lot of weight. How many guy have had a title and lost it, and still remained pretty good draws? Tito, Chuck, Lesnar, Couture, etc etc.

Honestly, are you seriously saying that if Silva lost to GSP, you would say to yourelf, "Well, 15 consecutive wins and 11 title defenses, but he lost to a p4p great once, so I'll never watch him again" Really? Same for GSP, especially if he lost to Silva and went back down to WW, I think it would be a pretty minor bump in the road for his career, if he wanted it that way.

Yep. That's exactly what I would prefer.

GSP makes the WW division what it is. Him leaving for MW does not make me happy at all. Same goes for Silva moving up to LHW. These are not superfights. A super fight is when two superb fighters of roughly equal weight go at it. Not when there's a 20+ pound difference. That's what's known as a freak show and serves no purpose but to make money.

With the run Hendrix is currently on, I consider GSP vs Johny a far more interesting fight.

It ruins the meaning of the title, I cant take chad dawson seriously anymore after he got stomped by andre ward at a lower weight class even though they are both champs. How are you gonna promote a champion also coming off a loss, that's beyond a farce that barely works in boxing even.

Well im sure that GSP would put on quiet a bit of muscle and close that gap as much as he can.

2 of the best pound for pound fighters separated by a single weight class is a freak show??? I guess the definition for Freak Show fights has changed.

Jose Canseco vs. Hong Man Choi
Fedor Emelianenko vs. Zuluzinho

Since these are what i consider to be freak show fights...

Not the best WW versus the best MW.

But since it does not make you happy.....

Exactly. I would say, with confidence, that GSP existing at WW makes all other WW fighters 20% better then if he was not there. He is the bar that every other WW aspires to reach. They all train harder because they know at the top of the food chain is a monster. The thought of the WW division without GSP makes me very sad. I want to see somebody beat him to win the belt. If he leaves, all other WW champs for the next 5 years will know they are not the real champ.

Its not a single weight class in a traditional sense. Its at least 20 pounds. To use Boxing as an example, can you see a champion going up 2 or 3 weight divisions to fight another champ being called a "super fight". Never in a million years. Because, its not a super fight. Its a freak show. The term super fight has, for decades, always represented two superb and very equally matched fighters going at it.

Yep nailed it sooj, and going by this condit just lost the real belt to hendricks if GSP wasn't there, it's as hollow as hell, if aldo beats pettis i'll think the fw belt was worthless unless of course the champion retires thats a different ball game.

It didn't excite me then and talk of it just bores me now.

Obviously I'll watch it and it would be a fun fight (part of my nonchalance is due to my opinion that Silva will walk through GSP easily, and I don't see the fight going any other way) but...meh.

I see it as a freakshow fight rather than an actual superfight.
If GSP/Silva is a "freakshow" then Silva/Bones is definitely a freakshow. Silva/GSP have been the two best fighters on the planet for years now. Their legacies are far beyond what Jones has accomplished. Whether people are interested or not, the super fight to make is still GSP/Silva and not Silva/Jones.

I am all for champions defending their belts and contenders getting their shots. But 1 fight in each division can be out in hold for the biggest fight that could possibly be made.
