WTF does Chael "The federal criminal" have to do with this?

If anything, how about if GSP moves up and fights Chael? GSP doesn't need to move up at all but if he does, lest's give him a warm up fight. Let him fight the guy who committed crimes against his own countrymen Chael Sonnen.

I believe that might be a good fight. But I don't think Chael wants any part of that. He to busy calling out Bisping of all people.

It seemed to me that he started backing out of his claims after he almost lost.

And GSP vs Chael would be excellent, one of the best I would go as far to say. GSP is a much better striker, but so is Anderson. Chael would walk right through GSP's jabs and I KNOW he would end up bringing out the best in GSP.

Hell, now that you mention it, I'd rather see GSP vs Chael over GSP vs Silva.

I honestly can't decide whether Dana likes or hates Anderson. He praises him as the best pound for pound, but treats him pretty badly.
They are harping on GSP, not because they are strictly Anderson fans, but because we have a chance to see the CLEAR #1/2 p4p fighters in the world go to war.

They are not as far apart in WEIGHT as people make them out to be.

Anderson moving up to fight Shogun would be EPIC, but there are special rules for Anderson that don't apply to GSP. Also, Shogun has not even defended his belt ONCE, and is not in the top 3 of almost ANY p4p list.

Bullshit. He's never turned down a fight at any weight class. He and his manager only have so much say as far as who they fight. And you know that pety. Don't hate.

Anderson doesn't want to be forced to give up his belt and records.

It's a simple as that.


Hard to make your argument when Anderson already HAS gone up before...before the special Uncle Dana rule.

That's what I'm saying. No need for GSP to jump to the beginning of the line. If he wants to fight @ MW, give him a few warm up fights to see if he can. And Chael would be a good warm up fight.

How long before Chael opens his big mouth and says something about GSP being French?

Kind of a BS move on Dana's part, as he has never forced a champion to do such a thing if they want to fight at a different class.

In fact, Dana praised BJ for wanting to have both belts, and defend them both.

How would Anderson respond if Dana went on record and said that he changed his mind, and he would allow Anderson to fight outside 185, but keep his belt and records? Who knows.

Don't pretend the Chael fight did this, as Anderson was already changing his tune about fighting outside 185 right after that PFPC from 112.

Yea because obviously beating a former LHW champion is a piece of cake for Silva.

Silva is just too good.
