    I'd love it if that happened. I'd love it even more if he took it a step further and said the champion's job is to defend the belt, and that he's not looking for a fight with Bendo, he's looking for a WW challenger.

    But I think what you've proposed is ambitious enough, I'd be more than satisfied with it.

    Somewhere in the last two/three years, MMA--well, the UFC in particular--has become a goddamned soap opera.

    Anderson Silva says he will NOT challenge GSP at UFC 154 | UFC News MMA News | Mixed Martial Arts | UFC News | BJPenn | MMA Fight | UFC Fights

    Last Wednesday, UFC President Dana White claimed that UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva (33-4 MMA, 16-0 UFC) would be heading to Montreal to challenge Georges St. Pierre (22-2 MMA, 16-2 UFC) to a 2013 “Superfight”, if GSP was to defeat Carlos Condit in the evenings main event.

    However, contrary to the statements made by the UFC President, Anderson Silva insists that he’s only heading to Montreal for a vacation and that he is not in the business of issuing challenges.

    Here is what the long-time UFC middleweight champion had to say to Tatame.com:

    “I’m on vacation for the fight. I think we just come back at the end of next year … I’m going to Los Angeles and then going to Canada for the fight of St. Pierre. I’m already going to be there to shoot a movie, a feature film that I’ll participate in with Lyoto (Machida). It’s not my character to up and challenge anyone. I think it will not happen. I think not, I’m sure (laughs).”
    Without an open challenge from “The Spider”, the “super fight” may never come to fruition.

    So you say RD is downplaying Anderson's size against GSP? while you are talking about "walk around weight"

    Hell lets just make a fat Forrest and Rampage fight a ripped AO, since they can get closer in weight...
    LOL!

    It just has the perfect set up no matter how you look at it. Hell, maybe they are trying to do both.
    Silva wont be fighting Sonnen again....

    Now that I am not in one of these arguments.... I see how mentally retarded people look when they are in the midst of one of these failed verbal sparring matches.
