Why does everyone give GSP flack for this fight not happening? Has Anderson exclaimed that he wants a fight with GSP?

Dana has also said GSP would have to vacate his title for this fight to happen. Something I suppose isn't a huge deal because he would most likely drop back down and trash whoever took the belt at 170.

He doesnt want either fighter to lose, especially GSP which Is a cash cow for him.
Maybe you haven't been paying attention? There are a LOT of fans who don't want the fight.

Yet, every single fan would pay to watch it. If they want a stadium sell-out type fight - that's it.

Dude you've really been hating on GSP since 129.. Everything I see you writing about him has been negative! The man is in your "fighters i like" section.

I'm not saying that i like him, i'm a huge Anderson fan.. but i appreciate what he can do, i just feel like he limits himself far too much since Serra..

Messed up eye or not, he was not impressive against Shields, Jake is meant to have the worst standup in the WW division and he was barely exposed.

Couldn't care less. I only care about legitimacy of the belts. MMA is still too fresh to be fecking up the WW division by cutting out the champion. By the same token, I dont really want Silva moving up to LHW permanently. These two guys make the WW and MW belts mean something. Winning the belt off one of these guys would legitimize the challenger as a REAL champion.

I bet every single WW out there wants GSP to stay at WW. I bet every single MW out there wants Silva top of the pile as well. Those are the opinions that mean anything to me. Not the fans. Not Danas. Not the TV stations.

Words of wisdom from *The Ridiculous* himself.

The sport (UFC) needs at least 2 divisions to have champions like Anderson and/or GSP. It adds more credibility.

The belts actually mean something.
The contenders in these divisions have a clear goal: beat that guy who is going for legendary status.

GSP went through the same exact things when he was a young up-and-coming fighter. The WW division was run by that guy called Matt Hughes, the same fighter who was the 1st to defeat "Rush".
That Hughes who looked unstoppable after becoming WW champion.

It gave GSP something to think about and helped him become the fighter he is today. He came back and defeated Hughes - twice.

He became *the new owner* of the WW division.
And now he is the target...it's just that his opponents haven't figured out how to beat him yet.

When Matt Hughes was prime - he was the standard every other WW fighter was judged on.
Now, that fighter is GSP.

In 15 years time, when fans will look behind on how the UFC's divisions unfolded, they will realise what GSP's and Anderson's reigns over their divisions really meant.

.



BELIEVE!

I have to say I think the fighters would all be relieved if GSP or Anderson moved from their divisions.

To quote Chael Sonnen; "Most of the guys in the back, in the locker room are cowards, they don't want to fight Anderson".

Now I'm not calling these guys cowards, but lets be real, around 90 percent of Anderson's opponents have already lost before they have even stepped into the ring, they're afraid of him. Forrest Griffin was actually terrified.

I think most of the fighters would rejoice and celebrate if Anderson left for good.
