I like Silva's honesty here as it's simple - he's bigger, younger, has all the tools to beat him and as shown he can utilize those tools excellently against AAA fighters. Instead of stringing people along he's just like "look, he'd probably beat me and that's not something I'm interested in". At the very least we know he's wanting GSP more than Jones and he's honest about why that is.

It's very refreshing to hear.
This is almost verbatim what I wanted to write from work. There's no percentage in either of the smaller champions going up a weight class to challenge, and they're both clearly reluctant to do so.

GSP has chosen (probably for marketing reasons) to pay lip service to the notion of a superfight, but it's obvious he doesn't want it.

Though to be honest, if Silva is reluctant to fight Jones, I'd prefer it if he didn't mention fighting GSP, either.

Agreed. Altho I don't think he's really brought it up in a while.

Hey is AS still GOAT if he admits he can't beat Jones?

He wouldn't beat Cain either, does that make him any less of a legend?

I can 't stand Silva. He's such a hypocrite. Keeps calling out a smaller welterweight, and refuses to take on the champion of a division he fights in. Okay, so you don't think you can win. Is that really a reason to duck the champ in a division you fight in?

He went on to say "GSP no good." He went on to clarify that GSP would not match up well against him. So then why keep calling out this smaller fighter?

Anderson needs to man up and fight Jones if he beats Weidman. Frankly, I hope he loses. That would just make my day.

Again with this cry baby rants? You keep ignoring Jones never called Anderson out for what reason? Is Jones ducking Anderson, then?

There's a reason why weight divisions exist. If a higher weight fighter wants a lower weight fighter, he's automatically seeking a fight where he knows he has an advantage, where as the opposite would be going into the fight knowing you are at a disadvantage.

Silva isn't jumping to fight Jones anywhere near the level he is to fight GSP, and the reason is he knows GSP is a lot smaller and that he has a really good shot at defeating him, and that is not the case at all with Jones.

Why is Jones not jumping to fight Anderson? Who knows... but we do know why Silva wants GSP more than he wants Jones, and it's because it's an easier fight.

There's nothing wrong with it so long as he's honest, and he is. He's said that Jones would beat him and he's said that he'd beat GSP, it's pretty simple and transparent at this point.

Because bigger fighters don't generally call out smaller fighters from smaller divisions. Jones would fight Silva if the UFC wanted him to, but he's stopping short of trash talking Silva trying to egg him into a fight he doesn't want to take. I really hope Weidman shuts his mouth. It'll be poetic, and definitely stop his whining about GSP.
