Default Super fight plans?

Will an Anderson silva loss hurt Dana whites super fight plans? Just heard Dana whit talking gsp, j jones, and silva. No catch weights. It's gonna be a pound for pound tourney.

Depends on how well Chris Weidman does as he plans to "# things up".

Hendricks and Weidman are capable of beating St Pierre and Silva IMHO, they should make Jones Silva at 205 immediatley providing all parties want it. That would be for the purists more than the UFC's financial gain.

The big commercial blockbuster is clearly Silva St Pierre, despite was us fans think of it.

Commission would never allow an open weight tournament.

Anderson has no intentions of tarnishing his legacy by fighting Jon Jones, he'd rather retire, that fight will never happen.

Zuffa would never risk discrediting all, but one of it's big draws in a tournament like this.

To reiterate, there's more chance of Ali - Foreman II "The dance in the stripclub", than this tournament coming to fruition
If silva is so worried about tarnishing his legacy he wouldnt be fighting weidman.

They should make every champion fight the champion above or below. Jones / Cain, Silva / GSP, Aldo / Bendo etc

I dont think losses will hurt any plans
Of course Dana is gonna say they have to win but if the losses happen fan interest will still be in those same super fights because MMA fans understand that in this sport sometimes the best lose
Its just the nature of the sport
