7 up from MW and 13 down from 205? Seems strange


I agree.  If that's as high as he's willing to go, then it's as good as him saying he doesn't want the fight.  Jon isn't getting down to 192.


yup.

ironic, since AS has routinely fought at LHW already....



if he would just say he doesn't want to fight, then i wouldn;t care and respect that.....but this excuse?! nah....

sparkuri -  Lol.

Did he fight Bonnar, Griffin, and Irvin at 192 as well ?

Did Fedor say he would fight Hong Man Choi at 238# ? Phone Post

lol HMC sucks and he fucked Fedor's face up before he got armbarred, Cro Cop beat him way easier.

lol

another 12'r who missed the point

Why don't you explain for the third fucking time then? Phone Post

OK

 

 

Wah ???

I just di.....

 

OHHHHHHHHH....

I was comparing the situation, not the fighters. I doesn't matter what you believe about HMC, or the other 2 posters, because the fact is, he was a gigantic, dangerous, skilled man. And Fedor did it, although it wasn't easy.

And as far as Forrest and Bonnar, Andy took out those two TUF 2005 gatekeepers and asked for no one to change at weights. Same with Irvin. He's choosing wisely and using his power. He's protecting his legacy, because he actually cares about it.

To be honest, this is so stupid I'm not sure it's even true. The world has wanted to see Jones/Silva for years, but Silva will never fight him because it is a far too dangerous fight.

The world has seen what happens to a man's stock when he is late in his career and takes risky fights, and Anderson has been watching. Do you know how long it took Anderson to recover his stock from his losses ?

The money involved, well, it's a lot.


Listen buddy, I know what you were trying to say, but how you going to use HMC? Sure he was big, but he hasn't done shit in MMA. ABSOLUTE SHIT. He can't even be compared to the same quality of a Bonnar or Griffin, NOT EVEN IRVIN. So don't act like you're some smart ass calling me a 12'r when infact you're probably the idiot who's 12.
LOL. Phone Post

I hope none of the people who say Jones would die trying to make 192 aren't the same ones always bleating about how Anderson is "really" 220lb. 


Are you saying he doesn't walk around at 220+ ?

Have you met the man ?

Hung out with him ?


If you believe Anderson's walking weight in the 220s is anything like Jones' walking weight in the 220s, then presumably you must also think Jones should have zero trouble making 192, since Anderson has never missed 185 and has even come in as low as 182.


I Read your first post.

 

Then read your second.

Not sure what is confusing you. Is it that I used a double negative in the first post? Here's the correction: "I hope none of the people who say Jones would die trying to make 192 are the same ones always bleating about how Anderson is "really" 220lb. "

agree

if this is really andersons words then he should fight gsp at 172, because the jones fight is not going to happen at that weight. Phone Post

He can't even meet Jones half way? Anderson has a knack for making himself look bad with this stuff he puts out there.

maybe "routinely" has a poor choice of words, but AS has fought 3 times successfully at LHW since he won the UFC MW title, and his most recent bout has been at LHW.

303 - I am sorry but the UFC would be foolish to not allow this fight to happen. If it means they have to break, or ammend their contract with the fighters they need to do so. I have followed this sport since the beginning we always wanted the top guys from all organizations fight. Sak vs Rickson, Wand vs Chuck. etc. This is the chance to make the first SUPER fight. If they have to offer these guys 3 million each and a PPV share do it. Then the great part is, whoever loses WILL get a rematch. They need to make a deal so crazy they have to take it.

Can't believe I missed this one.... This is how I FEEL about it. But not how I THINK about it. I'll be honest. I don't buy UFC PPV's anymore. I've missed a couple great fights, but I'm ok with that. I WOULD NOT miss this fight though. NO WAY. I'd pay 100 dollars to get it no doubt. It's the only thing the UFC could do that would make it an "event in my life" right now.

Sadly, I think the UFC won't make it happen "by any means necessary" because they don't "need to". Just listen to how many people on here think it's "unfair" for Silva to go up and fight him.

I hope I'm wrong about that. I genuinely hope I'm wrong.

Dana, if you're reading this....

I don't buy PPV's anymore. The last one I bought had Chuck Wandy on it I think? But I would pay 100 dollars to see Silva and Jones fight. It would be the first PPV my 10 year old son watched. This is a chance to truly make history. Remember Wandy Chuck back in the day? Remember the Fedor deal you couldn't get done? When Tito and BJ walked out to announce their returns?

This would eclipse ALL OF THAT. This is the biggest fight in the history of the sport. If Anderson will do MAKE IT HAPPEN... PLEASE!!!

Yes, but that's 3 fights in a 37 fight career. And two of those fights were 4 and 5 years ago. Also, two of them were short-notice fights expressly to help the UFC out (first to throw together a card to counter Affliction, most recent to save the Rio card). That leaves the Forrest fight as the only one that could be said to be Anderson actually "wanting" to fight at LHW, and it was 4 years until his next fight at that weight.
