    I keep wanting to dislike Bendo, but I just can't. I respect him calling out GSP and basically taking a shot at people who get title shots via "calling out" at the same time. I am a huge Chael fan, but at the same time he doesn't deserve the Jones fight. I hope he wins, but you get the idea.

    Georges St. Pierre won't let Ben Henderson 'cut' the money-making pay-per-view (PPV) line - MMAmania.com

    Georges spoke to MMA Fighting to give his take on the matter:

    "There are a lot of people who want to make money on pay-per-view. But only a few fighters who can do it. So the quickest way to try to get one of those fights is to try to call out one of those fighters who can make money. It's a way to try to cut the line. I've got a fight against Nick Diaz coming up next week and that's what I'm thinking about right now. After that, there are other welterweight contenders on the way. Ben Henderson isn't a fight I'm thinking about right now."

    I think people need to stop looking at GSP as "the smaller guy" and start respecting him more for his skillset and what he has accomplished in the octagon.

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with Silva challenging GSP just like there is nothing wrong with DC challenging Jon Jones.
    People also claimed that James Tony submitted Mo in training

    I agree there isn't anything wrong with Silva challenging GSP, just like Pettis challenging Aldo. If they can make the weight, they can make the weight.

    The fight with Edgar was way more competitive. It's not all about size. If it was then someone like Rashad should be able to have his way with GSP in training. Reports indicated Rashad couldn't even take him down.

    GSP is no cake walk not even for Silva. Obviously my argument dismisses extreme examples like Jon Jones fighting Edgar...
    I have the utmost confidence that Rashad's pure wrestling is better than GSP's.

    That is because he stays in top condition all year round. If he was like most other fighters, he would probably walk around 215; however, since he is professional all year round, he only gets up to around 190. Fighters like Rampage enter training camp at 250+ and get down to 205, but they are not in shape at those high weights.

    Gsp said that those reports were full of it, that the reporters watched for 5 minutes and saw gsp stuff 1 or 2 shots and get a take down of his own and made it seem like he was the best wrestler to exist.

    I feel it's better when somebody calls out a champion in a higher weight class, as opposed to the other way around.
