    The thing I'm happy about is that the UFC has been trying to get GSP to do what the fans want. That is probably one of Dana's best attributes, he does what the fans want. He even went on to go get Fedor at ridiculous amounts of money several times. It's nice to see GSP being pressured, even by the UFC.

    Moreover, there seems to be a sense of urgency with Dana on this superfight matter. I think he knows that Weidman is a real threat, and the chance of Andy losing at this age is increasing. This is why he most likely keeps bringing up GSP. Anyway, looking forward to the beating Andy gives Weidman tonight.

    gsp obviously doesn't perceive hendricks as big of a threat compared to silva.

    dana is saying both anderson and hendricks are threats so take the super fight, but hendricks =/= silva

    in gsp's defense, people would be pissed if hendricks had to fight someone else.

    GSP's been ducking Silva for years now. Nothing new here.

    GSP is his own man. He's not a puppet.

    Anyhow the blame should be on Dana White since he insists on fighters moving to another weight category instead of making a catchweight.

    I don't understand the need or desire to have 2 champs from different weight classes fight each other. It's really a no win for either. If Anderson wins, he beat a smaller guy, if GSP wins, it makes all the middleweight look weak.

    Maybee Dana should try not to throw his fighters Under the bus every time he talks.

    Yea, but if it makes Dana "sick", maybe GSP should reconsider.
    It's not nice of him to make Dana "sick".

    Anderson has fought at 205 several times, GSp at 185, not...

    it makes more sense for him to challenge Jones,

    more people want Jones - Anderson...

    Dana should be pushing for that..

    People would say "Well GSP loses to both so hes taking the easier way out to lose to a guy bigger, for a built in excuse"

    GSP is already rich. He doesn't need Silva.

    Yet he is. He does everything the ufc tells him to do. He would pose nude n awkward poses for a ufc calendar if the ufc told him. Hes just that afraid of Silva and alien.

    If GSP wins it's a pretty big win situation for GSP, imo.

    yeah manny pacquaio became super star moving up in weight and still winning. If you are successful, you are goat.

    If u fail, u become bj penn who probably would be 20-2 if he just stayed at lw his entire career.

    It's a good thing that most of the time "What the Fans Want" and Dana and the UFC making money are highly correlated. Dana will put in great efforts then for "What the Fans Want".

    However, it seems the fans also want the fighters to be getting paid more to be comparable with other top sports athletes. ahem, no comment here.

    very true.

    But he faces a very real chance of getting really fucked up fighting Anderson. Anderson mauls bigger guys like Forrest like its childs play, and while GSP is more skilled than Forrest, Anderson is just too big for GSP.
