Not many ppl will bash him losing to Gsp vs Weidman.
If you don't see this as Anderson Silva being a bad ass you are clinically insane. He wants the super fight and he is saying if GSP doesn't want to meet me halfway I will go down to 170. Also, losing to GSP is WAY riskier. If he loses to Wiemdan he would easily get an immediate rematch, win, and claim it was an off night. Losing to GSP makes GSP number one p4p and there is very little Silva could do to take that number one spot back, even if he beat GSP in a rematch it wouldn't matter much, GSP would still be number one.
That being said, I really hope this is true, I think this would be without a doubt the biggest fight in MMA history.
PS If Silva drops to 170 should Weidman then move up to 205 given he has already cleared out the MW division? JBJ don't be scared homie, Weidman is coming for you and after that Cain!
