Ladies, I'd prefer not to have to ban anyone or close this thread.
sniggles, stop baiting dbader.
dbader, stop rising to the bait.
Both of you: Go to your rooms, and no sulking, or I'll take away your internets.
Either way, I think a lot of folks see him as super talented and with GSP talking about a longer reign at 170, it does seem inevitable.
I mean no reporter, no Joe Rogans, no dana whites, nobody in Silva's actual entourage.
...I'm not saying they are melodramatic, I'm saying the media thrives on it, there are tons of fans who want it, and the media tries to give it to them. Thus, people continue to watch that shit reality show in the hopes that someone's going to eat ejaculate this season. That kind of thing.Quote:
Your are also incorrect for suggesting that melodrama has little if ANYthing to do with a potential Rory/GSP matchup. They are two of the most drama free guys at WW right now and argueably two of the chillest guys in the UFC outside the cage.
The fact that Rory and Georges don't have a lot of drama in their lives already means that any crack in the armor is going to be something the media wants to exploit.
Again, you're way off track. I'm not saying Rory is melodramatic. I'm saying the media is looking for melodrama wherever they can find it.Quote:
Do really think that if my suggested scenario plays out-GSP beats Hendricks, Rory stomps Penn and Diaz, and the GSP matchup gets made-that it would be anywhere even remotely near the drama we routinely see with fighters like Sonnen ,JJ, AS, Penn , Rampage, Tito etc. ? Not even fucking close man.
And that's why they're continuing to ask him now about a fight that's at least a year or two away...at best.
In all sincerity, I think he tests hot for juice within the next couple years. I think Penn is a crackpot about a lot of stuff, but I think he's actually accurate here. But maybe I'm being melodramatic.
I have a feeling Silva plans on retiring after his two fights are over regardless of him telling people he has another 5 years in him. Tito also said something similiar when he renewed his contract now look at him.
If GSP vs Silva never happens I wouldn't be surprised if Silva ends up fighting Bisping or Rockhold.
