I just want to know why GSP and Silva haven't fought yet??? They both cleaned out their divisions! I mean a rematch with Hendo and GSP vs. Swick or Kampman.. They cleaned out their division and should fight each other!

The UFC is about the best fighting the best in the world. GSP vs Silva or Silva vs Machida. This is what the fans want to see.... I've already seen Silva vs. Henderson... If Silva is only going to have a few more matches before he retires, why can't he fight the best guys he hasn't fought yet???

I am not a Forrest fighter fan and never was, I am however a Forrest the person fan. I think he ran out because like others have mentioned, he was embarrassed. Also Forrest is one fighter that really gives a crap about how his fans and MMA fans in general see him. When he lost against Jardine, and cried afterwards he got a lot of flack from people. I'm pretty sure that once he got his head back he started to tear up and didn't want anyone to see him that way. I'm sure it wasn't meant to be a disrespect of his opponent.

So does Brock need to fight Penn? Why do people insist on fights between champions.

You mean elusive. And though it pains me to admit it, he probably would.

Good Question! I agree but I think the only real problem between Andy and Georges would be the weight issue. I dont think Silva would want (but I dont know) to cut weight to get below 185 and I dont think Georges would fight at that weight. You know Machida and Silva might have to fight if thats the cards their delt! But it would be a SUPERFIGHT for sure. And it would load their pockets with greenbacks.
