I have to admit I don't understand how you can be a fan of the sport and not want to see those 2 go at it at a catchweight. I have to imagine that would be a more dangerous fight to both of them, then the 2 fights you listed above. Both of them have been # 1 and 2 in the p4p ranking for years now and they are only one division apart. I'm not trying to be a dick, I literally don't understand the reasons to be opposed to that fight?
Not directed at you, but I don't know why so many people talk about Weidman smothering Silva to death. Silva was smothered by a wrestler one time in his UFC career, in a fight he allegedly wanted to win by submission (per the movie like water).
If the interest in the super fight was mutual, I'd be interested in seeing it but I don't see the upside in it for Georges. He doesn't care about being considered the "greatest". He already makes a boatload of money off of each of his fights. And honestly after seeing him matched next to Shields and Condit, I just don't see him moving up in weight. He's got a welterweight frame. Georges has a lot more to lose than gain, so I don't see it happening.
I never was against Weidman getting the shot after the Munoz knock out, just thought a fight or two to season him before the test of Anderson was in his best interest. When he had to drop out of the Boetsch fight I thought for sure it would set him back but through the process of elimination he's pretty much all that's left standing.
