VIDEO | Silva Wants GSP Next Says Manager | UFC NEWS

“At the end of the day, GSP is the greatest welterweight of all time. People argue back and forth who the greatest pound-for-pound fighter in the world is. Some people say it’s Anderson, some people say it’s Georges St-Pierre. So I think the way to settle it is to do a catch weight at 177 1/2, right down the middle, and see what happens. I think it’ll be a fight that the fans want to see and it’ll be a great fight.”

    totally agree, GSP Silva was the fight everybody wanted to see before the rise of JBJ, Jones is a different generation then silva and GSP,lets see the two legends duke it out and after SIlva wins, JBJ can be his greatest and final test if he feels like taking it on, if not then god bless him still

  2. MMAnalyst says:

    that weight is key… 177.5 is a WAY different fight than them both at 185, please let this happen baby jesus

  3. 123 says:

    If Carlos Condit beats Georges St Pierre no1 will want this fight.

  4. Mike b says:

    I actually ran out of things to say about this topic cause they always put up forums about this fight.As a fight fan I would love to see it,but it’s not FU*KING happening.Give it up already.

  5. Charles Fleming says:

    Fight of the century. I believe it would go down to who can win standing because lets be honest Anderson is the best fighter ever and part of thar is because he knows how to get out of sticky situations and GSP is great on his back too. So it will be a brawl.

    I don’t see gsp taking this fight. How about Silva and JBJ at 195??

  7. I love fighting says:

    The one thing that i find interesting is the timing of all this talk from silva’s camp in regards to fighting GSP. They have never been this vocal about this super fight before,, and now GSP is returning from almost 2 years on the bench injured. They want this this fight now because they obviously think its their best chance to beat him, despite the fact that GSP is brilliant and that he is always in great shape i firmly believe there is going to be ring rust,,,, there is no substitute for being an active fighter.

    Funny how he brushes off and avoids answering “maybe jon jones” ahahaha

  9. bring back chuck! says:

    Gsp vs silvs will happen, condit doesn’t have a prayer. Speaking of prayer, gsp will lay n pray his way to victory against both. Jbj is great, he is not of liddell or coutour status quite yet. Even with that reach chuck would decapitate him, randy would g n p his ass to death.

    if anderson wants that fight that bad… cut ..gsp dont want the silva fight shows that anderson thinks gsp is that good!!! its not fare anderson knows how finsh with one hit might as well do some bruce lee shit and put 4 lw guys against him at the same time bet anderson wins

  11. KM says:

    Really? What people are arguing whether silva or gsp is the best pound for pound? Maybe 2-3 years ago. He wants gsp because he knows he will win with minimal damage and take home a big paycheck. Weak!!!

  12. First of all Anderson is fucking scared for jones and the whole world knows it that is why they keep calling out the smaller GSP cause they think Anderson will kill GSP cause he is smaller !!!

    Anderson is a scared of Jon jones end of fucking story!!!

    • mean170 says:

      How about a Jones/Silva at 195? You think your boy Jones can make 195? Silva/GSP would be at a 177.5 catchweight. Can Jones make 195? I think not, he is one of the biggest at LHW and now he’s fighting 185ers that Silva already stomped on(Vitor Chael). You all looove Jon Jones, but recognize he has some pillow punches just like Chael, his most effective strike is that kick to the knee. smh…Its like everyone on this site became a UFC fan last year.

      • Truth says:

        Sorry, but you are wrong. Jones has fought and finished the whos who in LHW. He didn’t want ot fight Sonnen, didn’t think he deserved a title shot and everyone bashed him for not taking the fight. I like GSP, one of my favorite fighters, but Silva will destroy him, thats why Silva wants this fight! Great pay day and easy fight. Silva has fought at LHW plenty of times and has done great! Only makes sense to for Bones! Or if that can’t happen Rashad has offered to drop to 185 to fight Silva, make that happen!! Both of those fights is better for the fans as far as it could go either way then GSP. Unfair fight for GSP!!

    • Truth says:

      Not sure Anderson is scared, but he must know that is a fight he could lose so he’s going for the easier fight. Personally, I’d like to see GSP vs Diaz and I hope GSP asks for that fight and doesn’t get sucked into a fight with Anderson… Whats Anderson gonna do when and if Rashad drops down to 185? Not that Rashad is on the same level as Jones, but he would be the toughest most deserving of a shot at the title! Is Silva gonna try and turn down that too? And if they do fight and he destroys Rashad, how can he not go for the LHW title other than he doesnt want to lose?

  13. MooreUSMC says:

    GSP will be at a hugh size disadvantage but a crazy style advantage. Also GSP is the most game plan savvy fighter ever. Still with silva it’s 1 punch and he is stupid accurate I think the size is too big an obstacle in the end. Not that I think the spider is better quite contrary I think GSP is the best but no one is good enough to avoid that kind of disadvantage for 5 rounds.
