    Will be anderson silva at ufc 200..makes way too much sense, perfect fight at this stage of their careers for both fighters and still a money generated for the ufc now...with rousey guranteed to be out for ufc, the ufc is taking a big risk having conor fight in march against the killer that is rda cause imagine if he gets hurt during the rda fight and cant fight at ufc 200, u would have your two biggest stars out for the biggest event and ufc 200 would be without a worthy star headliner..i ve heard in rumors that the ufc are okay with the risk cuz they have something BIG saved and up their sleeve for ufc 200..this is the only thing i could think of that would be big enough as co main or main...they need this prepped in case they are without conor, its only smart business sense to have worst case scenario back up plan...GSP has said himself in interviews that if he came back he would not come back to chase the 170 belt again and would chase superfights/big fights at diff weight class and firas even mentioned perhaps cutting to 155 a long time ago (said he can make 155 fine and was always a small 170), so if we take gsp at his word the first superfight that makes perfect sense is Anderson silva..gsp has also said to have an eye on a big money fight with $$ conor (im sure only if he beats rda)

    this is the fight they both wanted 5 yrs ago and i think the ufc thinks they can still sell it but it needs to happen asap while anderson is still relevant; before anderson too old to fight high level competition..even if andersons reputation is back somewhat with a victory over bisping, i dont expect anderson or the ufc is gonna be anxious for him to go title chasing at 40 and get beatdown by luke or chris right away (and they are already booked to fight each other anways)..this makes so much sense for anderson also cuz he only wants big names in non title fights...if gsp wants a big money $$ fight with conor it makes sense to fight anderson first ,at his walk around weight 185 then take a long time off if he wins and begin the process of adjusting his body to fight at 155.. this is a great comeback fight for gsp rather than fighting the terminator that is lawler right out the gate , that still draws big $$ without him having to interfere at 170 with rory and thompson, his buddies' title asparations...i dunno why evryone thinks he will comeback against lawler, that matchup would contradict what gsp has said he wants to do and ties him to 170 where im sure he doesnt want to fight wonderboy or rory or fight that often.

    sorry this is long but any THOUGHTS?

    Lol Lost

    GSP wouldn't even fight a one-legged Silva with that one leg in the grave.

    I can see it happening. The UFC seem to have something up their sleeve for 200, and this might be it.

    i think gsp wins now too, 5 yrs ago not so much, so its the perfect time for gsp to take it as a comeback fight...i posted this now so when it gets booked , u can remember who called it first, a long time ago, the prophet

    GSP would win.

    1- takedown
    2- ground and pound
    3- profit

    Damn GSP vs. Anderson at 200 would be epic... but at what weight? Theres definitely going to be a title fight on the card and that would mean it takes the top slot.. so the UFC would have to have a one-time only 5 round non-title non-main event which is a bit confusing

    if and only if A) GSP is really coming back, B) if Silva looks like dogshit against Spitsping but manages to eek out a decision.

    I just don't have any interest in this fight anymore. Superfights are only made when both guys are world beaters, IMO. GSP vs Robbie would be more interesting to me

    I'd watch this.....
    BUT, this fight should have happened when they were both champs. Similar situation to Mayweather v Pacman. Talked about for years and when they did eventually meet.....
    I have lost the interest in this match up now.

    GSP got out just in time. Most people think he lost his last fight. New banned substance standards. New talent shows you can't just be 1 dimensional anymore. Conor raised the level of what is expected of champions. Plus GSP dodged AS for years.

    bisping is perfect fodder for anderson to get/build his rep back, but if he starches bisping i dont think it puts the fear of god in gsp or anything....bisping and gsp are way different matchups for anderson...gsp way faster, way better takedowns, can still see out both eyes..do u think anderson reallt thinks he s gonna make a title run now at 40 if he beats bisping by ko? weidman killed him twice and hes not even the best anymore

    What do you guys think? From reading online a bit seems like UFC 200 might not have the star power or sick matchups.

    Weird time in MMA... Seems like Connor is the only real draw.

    Nothing like when Andy, wandy, crocop came into the UFC. Fun times.

    USADA... Re: him coming back for the $; I'm all for the pioneers (he's a later pioneer, sort of, whatever) coming back for the big $. They brought the sport here in the first place. I'm guessing that he's doing well though, so...

    Like both guys, but I am a Anderson fan and I kinda agree. I don't think that Silva could negate GSP's very powerful wrestling at this point. An average wrestler, yes .. but GSP is too beastly with his wrestling.
