Fans only do that because Silva himself talks about fighting Jon Jones and has tested himself (albeit against low ranked fighters or an easy stylistic matchup in Griffin) at LHW. Either that or he has to be talked into defending his title because the opponent doesn't have a "big enough name". GSP on the other hand constantly downplays the Silva match-up because he's focused on being the WW champion. He certainly isn't trying to publicly goad Benson Henderson into a superfight.

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.
