  3. DMAC says:

    Glovers the guy to test Jones huh. Lmfao ok I guess…I’d like to see him vs rampage, heavy hands though no doubt.

  4. DMAC says:

    Greatest of all time! 54.99 well worth it, no one does that type of shit in a cage.. Crazy ass!

    • Marc says:

      Not a big card in the papper, but those guys delivered a great show. demian maia sub, fitch vs silva, teixeira vs maldonado, and spider is just unbelivealbe, his techniche multiply his power to the point to 1-shot-ko bonnar.

    • Michael says:

      Man im sick of silva honestly. His opposition at 85 has been a joke with the exception of hendo and sonnen. His “13″ wins were against a bunch of irrelevant journeymen. Now his has his sights on gsp which is a joke. #1 we all wanted this fight three years ago, at that time silva didnt want anything to do with gsp. So when Machida came along and won the belt he said he wouldnt fight machida because they were friends but he would fight anybody else at lhw. Now Jones is champ and for some reason silva wont fight him. So he throws gsps name out there to try and avoid a fight with Jones. Who cares if he beats gsp which i think he would gsp is small the man could fight at 55 if he chose to. 170 is stacked with hendricks, penn, mcdonald, diaz, kos, fitch, when he beats gsp 170 would be so uninteresting. Honestly fight Jones and stop ducking elite fighters that are your size case closed

      • Michael says:

        He avoids any sort of question regarding the Jones fight oh no i dont want to fight at 205 anymore. Who are you going to fight at 85? Luke Rockhold? like honestly?? Name me one fighter at 85 that even deserves to be in the same sentence as Silva Tell me One just one. Theres nobody so you go to fight gsp at a catchweight, man let gsp take care of his weightclass that has legit contenders, whats impressive is what jon jones did, this guy dismantled elite mma legends and legit former champions or highly regarded contenders

        • Michael says:

          Its legit a joke. people are so strayed from the bigger picture. Is Anderson Silva Great? Absolutely, but in all honesty Gsp and Jones have fought far better competition on all fronts. SILVA IS SCARED OF JONES PERIOD. You dont remember a while back on Bjpenn.com Jones saying he has the tools to beat silva then all the sudden these boys have respect for each other and wont fight. Jones aint scared of Silva but you can bet your house silva dont even speak jones name and if he does its so duck any sort of action inside the cage with him

      • Just another enthusiast. says:

        Gsp has beat almost beat everyone in 170, highly unlikely he’ll fight mcdonald and who knows where diaz is at. Does hendrix deserve a shot? i personally dont think he does. I think skill and technique wise gsp is a better candidate then jon jones, gsp would walk naturally around 200-210 easily, also gsp has been around since 2002 jon jones only 2008. I know who i would choose to make my record look better. Gsp wouldnt be a walk in the park for anderson, i’d say gsp would have a better chance at finishing him then jon. All of that being said I would prefer to see anderson beat jons actually id like to see anyone do that but i reakon anderson could.

        To be the p4p best i personally believe you have to fight in more then one weight division until then gsp n jones are under anderson so make anderson fight them both.

        I’m not the biggest anderson fan nor is he one of my favourite fighters but the more people that hate on him the more i like him, dana white has to make him fight gsp and he has to make him fight jon jones for the sake of the fans of the sport. I reakon him fighting at 205 is him testing the waters n when hes ready he’ll go for jones.

        I respect your opinion but i reakon there are more factors in both fights then you point out, n thats my opinion case closed.
