P4P isnt an official ranking and is purely speculative I could say Frankie Edgar is the p4p #1 and you cant say im wrong simply because its opinion based and Legacy isnt always about winning either since Randy only has 19 wins and 10 losses and has left a great legacy.

Am I the only one who thinks GSP's public waffling on this fight may just be a message to Dana, that if he wants this super-fight, GSP is going to want a massive bonus check?

Id say you're on your own. Money isnt the issue i think the fight details are , weight , Championship fight etc etc.

Both camps want to have an edge and i think the only fair thing is meeting in the middle , the money will be good anyways and he will receive a massive bonus regardless.

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...
If Anderson can sling Franklin around like a rag doll in a muay thai clinch then it's very, very possible that Anderson is stronger than GSP.

This is the most ignorant post i've read on here in a while. How is GSP running from Anderson? He'd be running from him if he refused a fight, but that has never happened because they have never been scheduled to fight.

Ur basing ur assumption of GSP "running" on hypothetical fight match up talk?

Seriously WTF man? ur off ur ******* rocker!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lol how small was Okami and Anderson Silva at the time???

Okami looks like he weights 220 atleast. The dude is a monster size wise at MW. For both Anderson and Okami to have been at 170(WW) is kind of nutty. Since they are both like the biggest MW currently. I think it goes... Nate,Anderson,Okami. Thats what my line up goes when it comes to the weight.



1.


2.

Lets remember that Forrest Griffin is considered one if not the biggest LHW out there. He is said to dwarf the other LHW in size.

3.

If i didnt know what Okamis lower half looks like. I would think him and Nate are in different Weight Classes.

BJ Penn was never a WW but he doesn't need money since he is a rich man as is. So he has the luxury of moving around in weight and being granted TS left and right and not having to worry about losing money since he doesn't need it to begin with.

Why? This isn't the first time anderson has pushed for the fight and shown an interest. Every time he does, GSP either goes as quiet as a church mouse or makes up a load of excuses of how he doesnt want to fight. To me, that implies he's scared. Which isn't a surprise, GSP is scared of most of his opponents.

Anderson has never shown an interest in this fight. Saying he'll fight at catchweight is to protect his belt.

I posted a recent interview where he was directly asked if *he wanted* the fight, and his response was, "its a great fight for the fans."

Everything about his facial expression and body language says hes not interested. I'm 100% convinced neither of these guys want it right now.
