    GSP seems scared to fight someone where he is afraid he might lose.Why is he so scared AS? hes 43 now and Its a fight he clearly has other major advantages in.The ppv sales in a fight with AS would still be huge.Its either now or never. Wanting to fight the smaller guys is weak imo and does not represent why martial arts exist.

    Maybe because one is a title fight and the other isn’t?

    GSP v Conor would be way bigger today

    Especially if Conor beats Kebab

    Conor is the most relevant fighter in mma today, Khabib is the best LW in the world and with a win over Conor would be one of the if not he most relevant fighters in the world. GSP wants that kind of fight vs the guys who are most relevant today. Anderson at this point is almost a nostalgia fight for fans and the UFC

    On one hand, GSP could become the first triple champion.
    On the other hand, he would have to face a cheater.

    I'd go with the first option too.

    Maybe because Conor/Khabib is a guaranteed jackpot and maybe even a 3rd belt while Anderson in 2018 is irrelevant?

    Lol at him being afraid of current Anderson Silva who lost to Bisping.

    How many fights has Anderson won lately?

    GSP just finished a guy who beat him, beating Anderson doesn't mean that much these days.

    This fight shouldve been made ages ago and I guess nobody will be that interested in it now as they wouldve been when both were in their prime. GSP is still in good shape physically and mentally to fight champions and win titles, plus hes all about the wonga, so he's looking for a massive payday and there are better options than Silva for that.

    If it brings in at the very minimum, one million PPV buys, which it should do, he will easily set the fight up, no questions asked.
