    GSP, Silva and Jones have similar situations. Dominant to the point that most casual fans clamor for them to make super fights. More so, the Dana wants them as well, but only for monetary reasons with total disregard for the purity of the sport.

    My personal belief is that GSP takes the most grief in this triangle. There isn't a smaller fighter in this equation for GSP. Silva is willing to fight GSP so he's a supposed true warrior, same goes for Jones willingness to fight Silva. Jones and Silva are similar in size and their fight makes the most sense if one of these fights needs to happen. NONE of them should happen.

    I don't believe any of the three are the #1 challenger in the weight class above. Silva beats GSP, Jones beats Silva and Cain beats Jones. None of those results would or should have an effect on any sane P4P list. Instead of berating a man who chooses to stay in his division and take on all challengers, berate the man who wants to call out fighters with a clear size disadvantage.

    I don't even want GSP to fight Anderson anymore, so I can't blame the guy. Honestly could care less about any super fight. They will never be fair to either person. If the bigger person wins, he was supposed to, but it will still diminish his legacy in his own division if he was to lose. Personally I am just waiting for the Aldo-Jones talks to start ^0^

    Not everyone puts size > skill or views GSP as a fighter that is inept in his ability to beat Silva. See this is what makes me appreciate guys like Diaz because despite fighting at WW at least he had the balls to want to fight the best fighter on the planet mind you GSP had no problems dealing with Nick's size and length.

    Silva wanted to fight GSP because he respects what the man has done in the sport and considers him one of the best fighters of all time. He wanted this fight back when there was no Jon Jones. This was way back when people had the audacity to place GSP above Silva in the p4p rankings.


    Also I disagree with your statement that Jones and Silva are similiar in size.

    As far as Silva Vs Jones I think Jack Slack said it best:

    Not to mention that the gap between MW and LHW is the largest in the sport.

    Almost. Jones faces a much bigger obstacle when he eventually moves up to HW.

    So Silva doesn't respect Jones or what he's accomplished? I think Silva's desire to fight GSP is transparent.
