    Sometimes, people are stupid. If you want to make money, why the hell in the world do you pair Anderson against an unknown guy?

    Why not Conor, GSP, Shogun? Why?

    The goat does what the fuck he wants.

    I wish he fought Hall though.

    At least he isn't hand picking weak champions and then running away from the challengers.

    Silva GSP would be good.

    But he should retire now. Seriously

    It's a bit of a weird fight, I will admit. Nobody knows who Jared is (casuals) and if he loses, he loses to a nobody, in many people's eyes.
    But props to Anderson for taking on the challenge. He indeed can do whatever the fuck he wants.

    It's in the book
    Rockhold would be a good matchup. Hadn't heard of Cannonier before this. Win or lose, this fight does nothing for Silva.

    The McGregor fight makes no sense
    GSP doesn’t want to fight Silva
    Shogun isn’t a middleweight

    Silva has been fighting like shit for years now, so I guess they decided to give him someone he can beat.
    The problem is, if he doesn't hurl himself at Silva, Silva will just dance around showing no urgency, and wait to see what the judges have to say about it.

    Anderson has fought at LHW many times.

    TS is right. Anderson vs no-name will generate far less interest and money than an Anderson superfight.

    Dana needed a name.
    That means SIlva is fighting what is available with the time they have.

    IMHO no one care who Silva fights (in Brazil). They want to see him fight. That's about it.

    If Andy wants to fight Dana's grandma in Brazil he should be allowed to do it

    It is a bit of a weird fight. Isn't this supposed to be his last fight? Strange choice of opponents.

    This is crazy hope Anderson knows what he's getting himself into. Jared Canonier is the GOAT

    Your post confirms this.
    A shot MW fighting a guy who couldn't make it as a HW or a LHW but who might be able to at MW.

    Cannonier needs some sort of reward after his UFC slimmer of the year trophy.

    Silva shouldn't have taken this fight.

    Silva wanted to fight in Brazil and this was the first chance he could get. It’s probsbly a retirement fight.

    Cannonier will probably KO him into retirement.

    Signed, Silva fan.
