    To be fair, Conor did call him out.

    Solution to Anderson and GSP calling out smaller fighters: Anderson and GSP just fight each other.

    Anderson via KO. Conor's chin is glass.

    Anderson is now irrelevant,
    GSP is trying to write history here.
    Why would GSP fight a guy in his mid 40's who lost 4/5 last fight?

    The Undefeated LW King is a more interesting fight imo.

    That's a fair opinion. Personally I'd still rather see GSP-Anderson than either of them try to drop weight-classes.

    Don't get me wrong, would still watch GSP Vs Anderson.

    I just don't think that fight do something for GSP's Legacy at this point.

    #1 Khabib
    #2 T-Wood
    Edit: Askren #3

    #4 Silva far behind

    Silva just wants to optimize his chances of winning, since he is not even a top20 MW in 2018.

    He'd juice to fight conor too. He knows if he slips up again, he'd get slept by a fkin guy half his size.

    Anderson and GSP have earned the right to get money fights.. Even if its against Conor

    I like it, it'd be a funny fight. Anderson would kick Conor's ass but for the sake of entertainment I'm on board.. They definitely could make it but a super ww McGregor? Shiiiiettttt

    If I would have told you Anderson Silva would still be in the UFC in 2018, and coming off a win against a top 10 opponent in his division......would you believe me? Why does no one mention the GOAT longevity of this man, it's actually insane and I'd rather him reitre but WTF.

    Anderson Silva rematched Chael Sonnen, arguably his hardest matchup, despite the latter testing positive for a whole mexican pharmacy - and finished him again

    Georges refused to rematch Johnny Hendricks, retiring and claiming the latter was on steroids

    Different mentality

    You're correct, one resorted to pissing hot and losing, the other continued to get better after taking a 4 year hiatus to properly adding mass to become a 2nd UFC champion.

    Same reason we don't for BJ Penn, if you're not winning while continually fighting passed your prime, it doesn't look good.

    Atleast Fedor looks good when he wins past his prime.

    I remember reading that Conor walks at 178. He would gas in 3 minutes if he fights that heavy.
