UFC President: Silva will fight GSP & Jon Jones before he retires

source: espn.com
 

White had said a fight between welterweight champion St-Pierre and middleweight king Silva would happen if St-Pierre beat Carlos Condit at UFC 154 in November, and GSP delivered a victory.

Silva defended his middleweight title in July against Chael Sonnen, and he has waited since for a challenger to emerge. Chris Weidman has tried to lure Silva into the ring, but Silva does not have his next opponent lined up.

"The great thing about it is Anderson Silva is the greatest fighter ever in mixed martial arts. He's 185 pounds, and he lands right in the middle of Georges St-Pierre and Jon Jones, so he can fight both of those guys," White said.

I've been saying this forever. GSP is too small for Anderson. It isn't a fair fight.

Some people want to see GSP get beat because ya know, he is a lay and pray type fighter and boring. I hope GSP isn't forced into this fight at Silva's sake. Id rather Silva defend the freaking belt at 185 or move up to 205 perm.

This was after GSP wrestled the fuck out of Jon Fitch and BJ.  Interesting seeing Soares' opinion on Silva vs GSP then.

Agreed RE the fact that Dana is so adamant that these fights will happen.

I want to see both fights. I'm not going off how they "look" to people who have seen them all. I'm going off math and data on weights. Jon and Andy are closer in height and nothing else. Anderson as a full grown adult has fought at 167 and 175. Jon Jones could never have made 167 as an adult. Not even close. GSP regains a higher % of weight than either of them by fight night. Just common sense. Either way. Doesn't matter. We should all be happy that Dana seems to keep saying these fights will happen. :)
