A lot of mma fans claim gsp/Silva was nixed by Dana because he was pissed after Silva’s win over Maia. But, why didn’t Georges just tell Dana “hey, screw off. I want my money fight. Me and Anderson, the fans—all want this matchup. Let’s do this, who cares about the Maia fight? I’ll destroy him for you Dana.” Stars have power. We’ve seen it with Conor. We saw it before him. If you’re a star, a PPV draw...you have the power to pick and choose certain fights or matchups even if you’re champion. We saw this years later when Georges came out from hiding for 4 years to pick an undeserved fight with Mike Ping. Dana granted his wish because it was a slow year business wise and Georges brought in revenue. So, why do you think GSP didn’t just over ride Dana’s petty decision? Georges also could have made the fight happen a year before or a year after UFC 112 as well.
