Its not the advantages Silva would have (besides the ones he has over every other human being) its the advantages GSP would lose that make him almost invincible at WW. Its GSP thats trying to avoid Silva, who isn't, definetely not the other way around. So GSP fans get your timid fighter to sign the contract. Or as I suspect he will wait for Silva to retire or just get too old and lazy before moving up.

I think GSP is avoiding the fight. Silva has been calling out Mir, Roy Jones Jr in a boxing match and fighting Light Heavys. I doubt Anderson is scared of GSP.

GSP isn't avoiding the fight... He has said before many times that he would fight Silva.

If anyone is avoiding the fight it is Dana White.

I met Rashad at O'Hare airport once. The UFC lists him at 5'11. I'd say that is about right. Maybe 5'10. But he has a very thin frame. I've also met Tito and Forrest in Las Vegas at UFC 61. They are huge compared to Rashad. Thus, I'd say Rashad is a small LHW.

I also think that GSP is avoiding this fight. He might say that he wants to fight Silva to the public, but nobody really knows what he tells Dana behind closed doors!

Thanks for all the positiv feedback

lol, there are still people that say this? GSP has said repeatedly he will fight Silva and is in the process as we speak of bulking up and still with this absurd "GSP is afraid of Silva" stuff. After GSP runs through Hardy the Silva fight will get set up, count on it.

Dana doesnt want GSP to fight Anderson now that Anderson only has a few fights left on his contract, i think after he resigns we may see it, but why risk Anderson crushing GSP (something it really seems Dana thinks would happen) and then leaving??

Yea but do you know how much this fight would sell? How much profit Dana could make with this Matchup? I am pretty sure that this fight will break records in sellings. This would be a Dreamfight for a whole century.
