In fact, White said he still believes Silva will face both St-Pierre and UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones (17-1 MMA, 11-1 UFC).

"The beauty is the greatest fighter in the world weighs 185 pounds, and he falls in between No. 2 and No. 3 best pound-for-pound in the world," White told a small group of reporters following Thursday's pre-UFC on FOX 5 press conference in Seattle. "He could fight either one of them.

"I think he'll fight them both before his career is over."

"I think he'll fight them both before his career is over."

I'd love if someone with absolute no life and nothing better to do found every quote Dana's made about GSP vs. Silva. It's long past the point of funny or even mildly amusing, it's borderline pathological the flip-flopping he's done.

If he fought Jones and GSP, and won, he would forever be the GOAT imo

WTF can argue Disbeliver? A rematch with Hendo at 205 would be nice though. Hendo promised that fight long ago.

Agreed, although I'd say the same thing if he only beat GSP.

I don't think Jones is established enough for Silva to *need* to beat him to prove GOAT-ness. But if he did it would certainly be an extra point in his favor.

Disagree, the bigger and not the smaller. A LHW, not a WW. The reverse is 100 percent true and JBJ is as legit as them come.

Jones has beaten bonnar,bader,shogun,rampage,machida,Evans, and Belfort, and he finished 5/6 of them.He is definitely established and is widely considered the #2/3 P4P fighter in MMA. Phone Post

GSP presents more of a challenge to Silva. Jones takes unecessary risks and they will be exploited. A safe fighter is Silva's worst matchup. Phone Post

GSP is #2 on most P4P lists, but some people make reasons GSP should be over Silva. Taking him out removes any doubt as to where each one belongs.

And Jones is billed as "the future" and has murdered the top fighters in the LHW division and is already being discussed (however prematurely) in the top P4P lists. If Silva took out this young "future" star of MMA, AND GSP there would be absolutely no discussion as to Silva being #1


imo anyway

Yeah, legacy fights and we get to see the fights we always wanted to see and everyone makes money.  Awesome.

 

Great, big, huge motherfucking props to GSP for pushing for the Diaz fight.  I want to see GSP/Diaz more than I want to see any other fight in the world right now, and if this can really happen, I will know I was right for worshipping MMA for so long.

 

I did it because it's the most best and perfect sport in all of the world and that it makes everything wonderful.

 

If Nick Diaz/GSP actually happens, I promise a kidney to anyone that needs it if I can spare it.

 

I am not joking.  As long as it won't kill me and will help save a life, I will give it up.  One kidney from me at your service if this fight goes through.

 

I promise.  For real.

He needs Jones. GSP & no Jones = not much but a beat up smaller WW.
