wow, freddie roach says that anderson silva is too big for GSP and that GSP is not comfortable moving up to fight him. He is too big but it is having those fights that make your career great crossover to legendary...

He's right, there are weight classes for a reason. I do not want to see this fight.

Anderson is such a warrior he is calling out smaller guys while "not wanting" to fight the 205 champ which I think would be a way way better fight Phone Post

Hey Roach, MMA isn't boxing.

MMA has these things called "take downs" you've probably never heard of them

They both weigh in the 190's on fight night and Silva has only 1.5 inch reach advantage. This is bullcrap Phone Post

Silva will have the size/weight advantage. On fight day.

I think GSP could still beat Anderson. Would be a great fight. Phone Post

 I didn't know that
1. Anderson trained with Roach
2. Anderson is 6 - 0 as a pro in boxing in Brazil

thought they were gonna do a catchweight...

If they do, then the size is a bs excuse, because GSP will cut as much as possible.

Print - I agree but here's the thing

If they fight at a catchweight of 175 it should happen

But expecting GSP to move up to mw is full retard

This favors the guy coming down.

If they're the same size, fight at 170 for the title. Problem solved.

Thanks for posting.
I love talking to Freddy Roach.

Freddy has never once turned me down for an interview.
He's a great guy on and off camera and I always respect what he has to say.

It's pretty upsetting for me to see the condition Freddy is in these days...

Height wise gsp is smaller I guess, but size wise, bet that guy walks round near 200lbs Phone Post

  Why would GSP cut as much as possible if it is a catchweight? GSP would be moving up and Anderson would be moving down. GSP wouldn't have to cut as much as he normally does to make 170. Anderson on the other hand will have to cut more than normal.

agreed.
same story with the possible JBJ/Anderson matchup imo.

there are enough fighters out there ... somewhere there is a 170lber that has or will have GSP's number soon enough,..
same thing goes for Anderson and same for JBJ.

I personally prefer for champions to fight in their own weight class.
