You also had the Main event with Irvin in 08. The guy is in the main event of two UFC events at LHW one right after the champ lost his title and that isn't a run?

Yes, I suppose you can say that he was fighting the ex-champ and all... but I never saw that as a LHW campaign from Anderson. I saw as more as Anderson being bored and looking for some challenge.

just my opinion of course.
I don't think it was boredom I think it was a cash grab. I think it was his way of getting easy pay checks. He ran from Leites, and Maia and he cherry picked 205 ers that weren't going to bring him to the ground.

Joey has a little shameless behaviour in the past
GSP will never fight anderson and from dana last interview i dont think he wants him to fight silva either.

GSP will just keep handing out excuses and keep postponing the fight which will never happen.

Coward.

Shields has beaten Okami, Miller, Lawler and Henderson, he also has the longest win streak(2,500 days) of anyone else on that list and if he beats GSP he's likely going to break Fedor's record of 3,500 days without a loss.

BJ was on the list because he held titles in both classes and was the only LW in consideration for the p4p list.

You also forgot Jon Fitch who's on the list.

As for fighters who didn't stick in weight classes that they were winning in IIRC Vera 8-2, Sanchez went 2-1, Belfort...5 or 6 and 1 before the catch weights and middleweight fights.
Sanchez got dismantled by the champ and moved back up. Vera moved down after getting tooled by Timmy and never went back to HW. Vitor switched divisions before fighting at Franklin weight he was already at MW and didn't change. None of those guys took one off fights at another division, won, and then moved back down aside from Vitor and I think that was just more of a circumstance of the times there is a reason people call 195 franklin weight.

There is a big difference in moving up from your regular division and winning and beating someone who is doing that. BJ weighs in at around 167 to fight at WW Forrest cuts a large amount of weight to make LHW so Andy gets more credit for that win than GSP does over BJ even if BJ is clearly a more talented fighter.

Interesting, I would say BJ had the skills to beat GSP and Forrest didn't have the skills to beat Anderson. But if you want to count a win over BJ to be slightly better than a win over Forrest...okay.

Problem is...GSP beat BJ twice.

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...
Quoting for truth.

Personally I take everything that comes out of either side with a large helping of salt. Main reason? Neither of them speaks English as a first language, GSP's on the record as saying that some of the stuff that comes out in his interviews isn't quite what he meant since he's not quite fluent in the language. Interview him in French and we'll be able to get a much better idea of what he's actually thinking and what he really means.

Anderson's camp, especially Ed Soares have been known to give, how should I put this, less than accurate translations. Until I see a Portugese interview which is translated by a professional I'm going to have a hard time taking it seriously.

Coward.
Calling a professional fighter a coward from the confines of your home is pretty weak.

GSP is a great fighter with plenty of WW challenges and i dont see why he has to move up , if this is the case when Jones is champion and beats all the contenders is he obliged to move up and face the HW champion and the same for every other champion in other weight classes ? i find it laughable GSP is made out to be the one who is scared for not fighting a bigger guy , why doesnt Silva call out Shogun or Jones ?

How you win has a lot to do with P4P and legacy.
