I know Silva doesn't like fighting anyone who might actually beat him or challenge him, but GSP? Is this a joke??? There is no way I would pay to see this.
Beating up the 5-10 , 190 lbs GSP doesn't add much to his resume. GSP has had enough problems with people at WW. If he can't finish Hardy, there is no way in hell he is going to finish Silva.
He should move up and fight Jones. Silva's resume is pretty thin for the number of fights he has had and to be considered p4p champion/goat is a joke. A lot of hand picked opponents. If he is too scared to fight Jones, at least fight Rashad or Shogun.
