Maybe do an interim belt so he can go fight GSP and JBJ, then come back and unify them but even that seems pretty pointless to me.
If he wants a superfight, wouldn't it be more impressive to go up to 205 (the weightclass were has competed and done well in) and challenge Jon Jones?
I mean, GSP has already been beaten a couple of times in his career. But Jones only has 1 DQ loss on his record, and he has never even really been in trouble.
Also, Jones has not only defeat Brazilian MMA superstars Vitor Belfort and Shogun Rua, but also convincingly finished Anderson's close friend and training partner Lyoto Machida.
You don't find it odd that Anderson quickly made it public that he has befriended Jones (someone who doesn't exactly have an easy personality to like), while he's never developed a friendship with GSP (who is considered one of, if not THE most, respectful and humble people in the sport) in all the years they've been in the company?
