UFC Champ Anderson Silva Addresses GSP and Jon Jones “Super Fights”



Gotta love his face when Rogan mentions Bones. He's like, "Do I have to? Please dont make me." ... Was for comedy of course, but still.

I still think he finds the GSP fight a bit meh.

I love Silva. With all my heart. And several other organs.

I honestly believe we should forget about these SUPER FIGHTS.


Anderson probably doesnt want to fight a bigger man so why should GSP.


lets just leave it alone.

Bisping Fan extraordinaire

Velasquez will be back

Hmm shouldn't Anderson be sitting between JBJ(LHW) and GSP(WW) since AS is a MW, i guess GSP was too scared to even sit next to AS.

Silva vs GSP is long overdue and we all know why..(stop avoiding it Safe Pierre) AS wants to fight GSP to prove that he is the no1 p4p in the world and i think fans deserve to know. Silva vs JBJ can happen if Silva beat GSP and if JBJ defend LHW title at least couple of times.

GSP wasn't there because he had to leave (with Aldo)...

I don't really like superfight or P4P ranking, it's not easy to compare fighter who don't fight in the same fighter and we can't ask them to change weightclass if they like theirs....

Umm Rogan mentioned that Aldo had to leave early due to some weight cut issue in UFC 129.

So did GSP also have weight cut issue or was too he scare to be in the same room with AS and answer Joe Rogan's questions about the Super Fight?

I might be wrong but I think that Rogan at first said just Aldo and after that GSP had to go too

Man Bones makes Anderson look small, people who say Bones is just tall and thin are wrong, he is a MASSIVE man. He'd still be huge at HW.

But yeah these superfights are just nonsense, I'd like Silva to move up to 205 but I don't consider him fighting Bones a superfight, I'd rather see him fight Jackson, Rua, Evans etc. Silva vs GSP has always been a comical concept to me, it's just not practical for GSP.

Silva vs Jones would most likely look like Rua vs Jones. Then again if Jones were to tire like he did against Shogun, Silva could probably take advantage of it because he'd be in good shape.

Did you also think GSP vs Penn 2 was nonsense?
I think AS vs GSP is long overdue considering their p4p status. Fans wanna find out whos the best p4p, but Dana's not allowing it cos GSP doesn't want to face Silva.

GSP vs Penn 2 is not the same because Penn fought before at 170. If GSP fight AS, we will only know who is the best at 185...
