And let's face it...Ed Soares wants $$$ fights for Silva. Ones that he can win too, which is why they are actively pursuing GSP and making excuses and demands when asked about fighting Jones.
I just wonder since GSP will defend his title next fight, is Silva gonna do the same or will he take his year long layoff that he stated?
do any of you think GSP will actually fight with silva? i mean "I wanna take care of my challengers @ WW before i do anything with silva" the problem with that is that there are new challengers every year or so so him saying that would essentially eliminate any possibility of a GSP/Silva superfight. and people are always gonna make the excuse "Well each fighter needs to take care of their weight class first before thinking about this" hello, newsflash: Silva has cleaned out the MW division and no one has beat silva . wiedman wont, sonnen wont. GSP has cleaned out WW. beat fitch, hughes, Condit, Serra, Penn , Alves upon others. how many more beatings are GSP and Silva gonna have to give before everyone can agree on a superfight?
Quit making excuses. this is the fight to happen. Not Hendricks/GSP or Wiedman/Silva , not Jones/Silva but GSP/Silva.
