So GSP VS Silva officially Scrapped.. again?

For the fifth time since 2008? I've lost count.

Dana White should say it's never going to happen instead of having all thsese setup matches, if he beats Penn, if he beats Cote, if he beats Alves, if he beats Belfort and he beats Shields...

It will never ever happen. I guarantee it. GSP wants to protect his legacy at all costs. He was afraid to take the risk of throwing anything that Shields/Koscheck could counter. He is more afraid to fight Anderson.

I think the only time this fight was a serious possibility was after ufc 100, the night of abu dhabi and last saturday. after 100 he came up with excuses of a torn groin/needing 6 months to pile on muscle. Which was his pansy way of evading the question

Dana and co enabled him by not pushing the issue again, then anderson comes up with a crazy idea (which im sure was in jest) to drop to 170.And the ufc/gsp jump all over it like flies to sh!t. Then maia happened and they had the gull to say Anderson doesnt deserve to face gsp

Finally dana decides to stop the protecting and show the world who is really stopping this fight from happening.They say he'll be movin after 129 and the caveat is a titleshot. And the guy says he needs to speak to his sponsors first?


yeah i think its safe to say its never happening nit even at catch-weight

To Live is 2 suffer, 2 survive? well that is 2 find meaning in the suffering

Speak to his sponsors lmao what a joke if it was his wish to move up to 170 he could he just wont. Thats interesting to know silva will fight gsp but not vice versa.

I'd rather see GSP fight Nick Diaz and Carlos Condit. I'd prefer to see Anderson compete at LHW, fight a few contenders and challenge for the belt. Not before another fight with Sonnen and a fight with Bisping.

Its the super fight every fan wants to see, except Dana White.
He doesnt want either fighter to lose, especially GSP which Is a cash cow for him.

GSP-Silva has officially become the Pacman-Mayweather of MMA. If it hasn't happened by now rest assured it will NEVER happen. Silva is already scheduled to fight Okami in August and GSP is already in talks to possibly set up a fight with Diaz.
Silva and GSP will both retire their careers as champion of their respective division with a long reign of title defenses.
