    It allows GSP to have a lucrative, high-profile fight in the WW division instead of facing Anderson Silva in a superfight, in which he's severely outmached

    Deflecting attention away from, or at the very least delaying, the Anderson/GSP Superfight
    =Win for GSP fans

    Silva v GSP is not happening any time soon. Diaz v GSP is.

    let the never ending drama die. you're not helping.

    GSP and GSP fans have nothing to loss in a Anderson fight, But George has a reasonable chance at winning that fight.

    Anderson's legacy is the one in jeopardy.

    Anderson Silva would destroy GSP 99/1.
    no point on a super fight with them.
    we just need Anderson Silva vs Jon Jones, this would be the badass super fight in MMA history.

    Jones will move to HW soon so he don't need no super fight against JDS cause he will meet JDS, Cain and Overeem soon by 2014.

    Said it before and I'll say it again
    I'll watch GSP fight and anyone they put in front of him. It's a superfight though, if it happens it happens, if it doesn't it doesn't, it's not something worth complaining or accusing people of being scarred.

    If GSP were to face Silva right now, we'd have threads about how he's ducking Diaz and Hendricks
    If GSP were to face Hendricks right now, we'd have threads about how he's ducking Diaz and Silva
    We have GSP facing Diaz, and now we have threads about GSP ducking Silva and Hendricks

    While I agree with many that Nick doesn't deserve a title-shot, people need to understand that it's still good for business and will still entertain the hell out of me and lots of fans. Not every single fight has to be the most relevant and it's pretty naive to expect it to be honest.

    the amount of disrespect nick diaz gets on these forums. nick diaz isn't some fukin bum, dude can beat GSP. I ain't saying its gonna be easy, especially because GSP is hoping to win a boring ass decision, but if anyone in the welterweight division can do it, its 209. Give me a break, hendricks is the one that has no chance against GSP.

    Oh snaps, youre all over his nuts today.
     
  14. The only thing delaying that fight is Andy going off and making movies and failing to step on a scale at 170lbs.

    A GSP vs SILVA fight wasn't what the majority wanted and I don't believe they'll ever want. I didn't want to see it and the polls around here stated likewise.

    GSP beats Anderson 7/10 times and the 3 times its because of bad judging.

    For u idiots that think silva would destroy GSP. U need to watch UFC 117. He got dominated and GSP is much better mma wrestler than chael. He would dominate Anderson on the ground and give him a beating he would remember forever

    Are you under the delusion that somehow being a GSP fan means hating or fearing Silva in any way, shape or form? Do you further suffer from the delusion that if the fight happened Georges' fans would care if he won or lost?

    Never understood the logic. Don't get me wrong GSP is an excellent MMA wrestler but so is Chael. For the most part Chael has gotten every single opponent to the mat, just like GSP so I don't know how you came to a conclusion that one is better than the other.

    Despite Shertard opinion Anderson has good TDD so it's not like it's just a gimme. But on the mat George would wrasslefuck the hell out of AS, but if he can't get it there he is screwed.
