I am not paying to watch a non competitive main event. Anderson Silva versus most MW is not competitive. Anderson Silva versus most LHWs is not competitive. I don't think most other people want to pay $50 to see this either.
Who else is even "stepping up" to fight punching bags....no one. Most fighters are dropping down weight classes. Which fighters has Anderson been asked to fight and not fought? Show me where Dana has asked Anderson to fight Jones specifically? How did he pick and choose which MWs he fought when has has beaten every top contender that has been in there? Who has he ducked? I assume you are going to mention Weidman, but again...show me where he was offered the fight?
Easy explanation on the GSP fight...MONEY!! No other fight will make Anderson the amount of money that GSP would.
Personally, I have never paid 50 to watch any "main event." If the entire card is not worth it, then I don't get it.
So if most of Anderson's fights at MW and LHW aren't competitive, then what's the argument? Because I personally don't think the Jones fight is going to be any more competitive than the others....
We get too involved in all of the rumors and message board talk about who should fight who, etc....but when you come down to Dana coming to these fighters and saying "We are asking you to fight this guy" Anderson has fought them.
