I just think it's like every other fighter on a team of fighters that refuses to put themselves in a situation where they might have to fight a teammate. If Jones was in MW, do you think Anderson would avoid him then?

I don't think it hurts his legacy at this point. No one else is doing what he has done. GSP hasn't moved weight classes, Jones hasn't moved weight classes, etc....Anderson is still the only one of the 3 that has moved up and completely destroyed heavier competition.
And it's easy to figure out he stands to make MUCH MUCH more money with a GSP fight than a Jones fight....especially after Jones got scared of Sonnen
