Silva: I'd prefer GSP, it's an easier fight


UFC president Dana White guaranteed he will make the Silva v Jones bout, but the Brazilian wagged his finger in disagreement.

"I'm old, guys," Silva said. "I'm getting old. I'm retired. I'm nearly there. I've only got another five years.

"I think [GSP] would be a great challenge for me. I prefer him over Jon Jones. He's smaller. It'll be a little bit easier. I'll be hit less."

I'd like to see Bisping get the shot just to see him shut up, about not getting a shot at Anderson.

Would love to hear BJ's opinion on this. BJ who always wanted to fight the bigger, tougher guys, never wanted an easy fight.

"the weight stat is unverified. Coaches can say what they want. There is no weigh in on fight night." Anderson weighed in officially at 202 for Bonnar, even that is just 10lb above what GSP weighed for his last fight at 170, and 4lb less than what Vitor (verifiably) weighed on the day of his last 185 fight. Meanwhile it's 20+lb less than what Jones weighs for his 205 fights. "reach in MMA is a misleading stat." What would you like to go by?
