GSP has become dispensable to Dana, Hes got Hendricks (and WW is deep) thats why Hes ok for Silva (who isnt much smaller than Bonnar) to dispose of GSP. Its a ridiculous matchup.

Id like for him to push for a Silva/Jon Jones fight. Theres a reason Hes not pursuing it. Jon Jones will get his shit pushed in and Silva would probably retire. Its not a good deal for Dana.

good point. if anybody can beat Jones now, its Silva. If silva does it, he will become GOAT and having no reason to keep fighting.

To me that fight makes alot more sense than the Silva v GSP fight.

Silva has fought a couple times at least in the LHW division with no problems.

GSP is 5'10 and Silva is 6'2, it's just not a good matchup for GSP.

Overriding opinion here is that Georges gets absolutely wrecked by Anderson

Theres mixed feelings about who'd win between Jones and Anderson

It would probably be the most anticipated biggest MMA fight of all time

Dont give a shit about Pacquiao Mayweather anymore, dont want to see mismatch GSP Anderson, like he said Silva Jones must happen. One of the unstoppable monsters would get ****ed up!

I have no doubt Silva beats Jones, I think He'll knock him out to be honest. I'm a huge Jones fan and not so much Silvas but Anderson is operating now where no MMA fighter ever has. His technique is absolutely tight, His stand up is in a whole different level, toying with contenders. His BJJ and prevent game is there. If this fight is not spent 100% on the ground, He would crack Jones.

This is Danas fear, Jones is his future cash cow and the LHW division is getting old. He cant afford Jones to look bad and have Silva retire (who is not close to being warm with Dana to begin with). This fight is a potential two division killer.

Meanwhile at WW, let be honest GSP isnt the most exciting champ. He's great for Canadian fans but thats why Rory is being built up for to target that demographic. Hendricks might become a cash cow, the guys electric.
This division has actually become deep in GSPs absence with plenty of prime fighters whos capable of beating each other any given night. You can actually hold a tournament at this division.

GSP is being forced by Dana and its obvious, Dana was declaring GSP/Silva w/o GSP knowing about. Ive never heard GSP uttered I want Silva next and yet we are promised a May fight.

GSP doesn't want to fight Anderson because he knows he can't win. He's no BJ Penn.

Dana's a nasty piece of shit. Its obvious GSP is scared and doesnt want this fight. After all the tough title defences St Pierre's had to make, nevermind the massive money he's brought to the UFC, you'd think Dana would do the decent thing and let it go. Scumbag
