Some people just don't understand what a big difference facing a guy 10 lbs heavier than you makes when you guys are both in peak physical condition. That is 10 more lbs you have to move, while 10 less lbs your opponent has to deal with. That is a 20 lbs swing.
Why doesn't Anderson call out Jones instead? He's fought at 205 numerous times.
I don't buy the whole "friends" and "respect" thing. Anderson and GSP have been in the UFC a long time now, and GSP is one of the nicest, humblest, most respectful guys in this sport. You're telling me Anderson won't fight Jones out of respect and friendship, but has no problem taking on GSP?
I'm not saying he is a coward, but his reasoning seems like complete bullshit.
