As a fan I'd be ecstatic to see either fight, but I think Anderson vs Jones is the closer fight of the 2, the more historically significant fight, and the fight that most fans would rather see.
I want to see both fights. I agree that Jones vs Anderson would be more competitive and it's the fight I'd rather see.
All I'm saying is that I totally understand Anderson's reasons for not wanting it.
Jones has ruled out a fight against Anderson though. So you're saying he'd go back on that statement? You could be right....but I'd rather base my opinions off of what I know rather than speculation.
And if GSP is saying that he'll take the fight with Anderson, then good for him. He's said many times in the past that he wouldn't. Just weeks ago he made some statements saying that moving up isn't something that he wants. He said that there is plenty left for him at WW.
Basically the same thing Anderson is saying but Bubbles didn't hate on GSP. So I call bull shit.

"I want to defend my title....but not against the #1 contender Chris Weidman"
I think we've talked about this before and I don't want to beat a dead horse. But it is absolutely ABSURD to think that Anderson Silva is ducking Chris Weidman.
Weidman has not earned a title shot. The only reason he was even being talked about is because there was no one else. Anderson doesn't want to waste a fight on a guy who hasn't earned it.
I wouldn't mind it if Weidman got a shot after beating Boetsch (if it was dominant) but personally I'd prefer it if he fought Bisping or Belcher first. Why not find out who the REAL #1 contender is?
