Stay at WW, retire at WW. I don't want to see GSP moving around divisions. He's perfectly built for WW.

Sounds like a bunch of excuses. Exactly what Matt hughes said, All he cares about is his bankroll. That is why i have so much respect for Bj penn he fights the best no matter the weight class.

Ill be waiting for the upset next month.

At some point he has to move up IMO. His only 29 years old and there aren't enough top welterweights for him to fight to the time he retires eventually.

What are you talking about?

This is the guys career we are talking about, first and foremost his responcibily is to make money for himself and his family....obviously his sponsorship deals are a large part of his income, why would he not need to talk to them?

I still don't understand how people can label a guy a coward or 'yellah bastard' when he steps into the cage for years fighting at the elite level....how many cowards do you think could put their life on the line like that really?

He is obviously paid big money by his sponsors who have bought into the GSP brand as the greatest WW champ ever and someone who has a long unbeaten run.

Surely before he undertakes a decision such as whether or not to move up a weight class (and no longer be 'the champ') he would have to consult those people who pay him and ensure they are ok to secure his livelyhood.

Remember these guys only have a relatively small window of opportunity within the sport in which to maxamise their earning potential, decisions like these will not be taken lightly.

It doesn't mean he is scared to take the challenge, not that he will not, he is just being honest and saying it is something he needs to consider and consult with the players involved in his career before he decides.

The obvious answer is the catchweight match, but maybe he feels he would need extra strength and power/weight to be able to use his wrestling effectively on Silva over 5 rounds so before he decides to emabrk on increasing his weight (which will take some time to do so effectively with the increases in strnegth accompanying it) he has to sit down and think.

Maybe Dana and the UFC need to make it worth his while so to speak.

You honestly think losing to Silva will hurt his income? GSP is the ufc poster boy, he is set for life. IDK i think its a lot of BS for him just to take the fight.

I agree with this. He shouldn┤t move up, his frame is perfect for WW.
He could bulk up but he┤d lose speed and he would be smaller than most guys on MW, where by the waymany of the fighters are natural LHW cutting down a lot do make 186.
He would be a fish out of the water.
If he agrees with superfight, it only makes sense in my ming in a catchweight fight. And if he were to do it, it would be to please the fans, so, cool on him in that case, because realisticly he has too many to lose.

I mean.. really? "GSP is a gay" and he doesnt need to "think of feeding his family"?

Man, this forum has gone down hill the last year or so.
To much BS, to little MMA knowledge

It wouldn't destroy his income, but it could effect his future earning potential as he could lose some of his mystique and damage his brand as being the best of the best so to speak.

It's not going to suddenly put him in the poor house or anything but it is something to consider when he weighs up the pros and cons of taking the fight and whether the potential gains outweigh the potential losses.

If he won what difference would it make to him? He would be considered the number 1 p4p fighter in the world, but would it make the greatest difference? he is already seen as one of the best.

I'm not reaching, I'm not a GSP fan boy, he is one of my favoured fighters but I am probably more of a Silva fan over all so I have no reason to reach for excuses for him (as for him being gay....well that's just a foolish and childish statement I am not going to bother addressing that post any further.)

It's a superfight, but one I personally think GSP would be a massive outsider in. Taking the fight is a massive risk I feel, he has spent years building up his reputation as one of the best if he were to be totally outclassed and ko'd by Silva in a style similar to Forrest it could impact on his future as a fighter (his image tarnished and potential his confidence too)
