Unless you think the fight Anderson had with the ref when he pulled him off Okami was the dominating performance of the fight.

I know Okami was backing up and away for most of the fight, but aren't some of you the same ones who thought Kampmann beat Sanchez for doing the same thing?

I am saying that GSP weighs like 192-195 in fighting shape so it is absurd that he would be demanding a catchweight bellow 185. Several people who fight at MW in the UFC are basically the same size and weight as GSP he is a very large WW. If he just doesn't want to move up permanently or have to fight 5 rounds with Andy then make the catchweight 186.5 or something they would still both be cutting weight and it wouldn't be a cheap ploy to try and hurt your opponents performance.

seems to me, GSP is stalling and waiting for Silva to get old or until Silva slows down a bit before he fights him. a total b*tch move in my opinion.

the GREATEST and most disrespected...

Listen (<- my Dana White style of starting off)...

Nobody cared that BJ was cleary smaller than GSP when he fought him. BJ was a badass who wanted to beat the crap out of GSP. It was great. GSP whooped him because he was stronger than BJ, especially in the 2nd fight.

Yes Anderson is bigger than George, but do you really think that Anderson is stronger than GSP? I said this before and I still think it, I'd bet cash that GSP could squat way more than Andy...

Ok, so GSP is stronger and smaller, Andy is lankier and more elusive. It's a fantastic fight.

GSP has had no problem fighting lots of smaller guys in his day (Sherk / Hughes / BJ). It's because he's a champ and knows how to cut. Not necessarily his fault. But take a fight where you are the underdog for once... has anyone seriously thought in the last 6 years that George would ever lose against his opponents?? I haven't.

Has anyone ever been worried that Anderson would lose to Hendo, or when he moved up in weight? You bet!

GSP vs Anderson would be EPIC, admit it...

And your assumption is based on what? Frankly I haven't heard anything from GSP that points to him wanting to fight Silva when he is older. If GSP said something like, I will fight Silva in 5 years, then your assumption would have something behind it, but as of right now, your assumption has no support.

There is a difference between dieting to cut fat and the actual cut from the weight you show up on fight night at. Most people aren't cutting and regaining 35+ pounds of water weight that is bullshit and dangerous. Anderson is only 220 when he has a lot of extra fat on before some camps. He is doing his week of the fight cut from 195-205 and that is what he will actually weigh come fight time. GSP doesn't put on weight between camps so he is weighing around 190-195 on fight night. GSP cuts a lot more weight to make WW than Andy does to make MW. Andy just has a huge frame that would allow him to put on far more muscle than he actually carries.

People act like Andy is built like Brock Lesnar too, hes too big for GSP. Look at him, hes a lanky, skinny mother trucker. Like previously posted, there is no doubt that GSP is the physically stronger man.

If GSP is still fishing for excuses after the Shields fight, then god damn, I give up.

And frankly after Anderson's Light Heavyweight title run I will never trust him again.
see the thing is andersons been trying to fight for the p4p title but gsp been trying to avoid the fight...
