He'd 100% allow a CW fight between JBJ and Silva or GSP and Silva.  He's just protecting Rousey.

Glovegate - 

If I were Jones I'd accept then cut to 215 and stop there.

Fucking LOL @ 192.   It's not even half way between their divisions.

 

Anderson apparently never wanting to fight who the UFC says, GSP flat out denying Hendricks, Aldo flat out refusing Pettis a title shot, Ronda doing a 180 on saying she would fight Cyborg after she won the belt...

What the FUCK is happening to this sport?


this is happening:

I'm sure Dana didn't want to give Ronda a belt and then give her a fight in which she wouldn't be defending it. Anderson Silva and Bones have established themselves as champs in the UFC, multiple defenses. If they had made the Cyborg fight and Ronda lost, you'd all be bitching when she came back as champ to defend her belt.

Dana said on Rogans podcast the other day that Anderson likes to fuck with the media,(like saying he could make 170) and that what he wants is big fights. Take that however you want. Phone Post

I think a 200 lb CW fight is fair.  What would be most fair is 195, but I really don't think Jon can get down there.

At 192lbs. Jones will lose 12lbs more than he is used too, and Silva will probably have no problem making that weight. Ultimately they both gain weight after the weigh in, and both fighters end up at 220lbs. Sounds pretty reasonable. Remember that Jones is a bigger fighter than Anderson Silva. End of story. Jones will be a heavyweight in a couple of years. So this makes alot of sense too me, because I put some thought into it. Try it once awhile.

No chance of Jones getting under 200. It's probably not easy for him to make 205. There's a reason he wants to go to heavyweight Phone Post

So do you think it should happen at 205? I think it would be difficult, but with a small lifestyle change and a scientific and calculated cut, Jon could get down to 200.

BOMDC - Pretty cowardly way of declining the fight.

GOAT
It wouldn't look so tacky if Silva didn't frequently move up to 205.

But to insist on a catch weight tells me he takes Jones very seriously and wants to mitigate the weight/ strength advantage of Jones. Phone Post

Just a roundabout way of saying he doesn't want the fight, and even if he got this, Jones wouldn't be at near 100%.

If it happens I'd say might as well do it for the 205 title. Silva is only going to weigh like 202-207 probably and I don't feel like making Jones cut an extra 5 pounds is really that big of a deal. He's going to be a lot bigger no matter what weight they do it at.

Only way I see a 200 lb catchweight making sense is if Silva doesn't want the 205 title and Jones doesn't want to risk losing his belt in a superfight with Silva. Phone Post

Lol Silva wouldn't be anywhere close to 220. The information is out there if you want it, I'll leave it at that. I don't want to derail this surprisingly civil thread Phone Post

Manny Pacquiao made his whole career off of doing this once he went above 140 and you guys all thought it was fine.He has never had one legit title above 140 that wasnt done exactly like this.

Jones doesn't even want the fight at 205, what is the point of offering an even less-enticing catchweight?


Jones would absolutely fight Anderson at 205.


Whether he would or not, he said he doesn't want to. Is having to cut 13 extra pounds supposed to sweeten the pot?
