Exactly, not for the reason implied though. By publically giving GSP the choice Dana White has made it so that GSP is ducking Silva by choosing Hendricks or ducking Hendricks by choosing Silva. GSP's only way to avoid any criticism now is to fight Silva and Hendricks at the same time or fight them back to back on the same card.

Hating on Anderson Silva before it was the cool thing to do.
The idea of a "true number one contender" is the stupidiest MMA idea to be perpetuated by fans and media, EVER.
HATES the new MMANEWS forum. Bring back the dark background.
