“It’s terrible. I hate that, but I’m not focusing on that. I’m not speculating. I’m thinking about Condit right now. That’s what I should do… I feel like I have a lot of guys that are there and I don’t understand why people are going crazy now, but I just came back from an injury, so maybe some people see me as a weak link. We’ll see what’s going to happen in the future.”

I never got my hopes up. Either GSP, Silva or Dana is stopping this fight, it's always one, this time it was GSP, next time it'll be Dana "GSP still has plenty of fights" next time it'll be Silva etc etc etc

I wouldnt mind seeing them fight, but I never expect them to fight.

I like that he's focused on 1 fight....his NEXT one. A few guys recently have been talking about everything BUT their currently scheduled fight. Keep your eyes on the prize

Good to see some focus but remember GSP has ALWAYS been the one stopping the fight from happening since back when his top contenders were Dan Hardy and Jake Shields......

I do seem to recall GSP saying numerous times that he wanted/needed years to put on muscle to compete against Anderson Silva. At least that's what he was saying when the talk was about that fight happening at 185lbs. Who knows if the 180lb catchweight will change things.

It's good too see GSP with his sights on Welterweight though. Condit, Hendricks, Kampmann and Diaz are all waiting. Ellenberger could get back in the mix soon. Erick Silva is doing his thing.... Middleweight hasn't changed too much, aside from Weidman, (Belcher tore it up in his fights back as well) so it makes sense for Anderson to be looking a little more closely at this fight.

GSP has at least two or three fights left before he cleans house, Spider style. I'm glad that appears to be his goal. Maybe Anderson can find a Middleweight to fight in the meantime

GSP just wants to stay at WW until Silva is in his 40's... THEN he will be ready to fight him.

Yeah that was a bit harsh. I remember GSP saying, moving up to fight Silva would be a complete life style change for him. I can understand why he doesnt want to do it. I dont think it has anything to do with being scared. I believe Silva would win, but GSP isnt scared. GSP can set a game plan against anyone. Would be a great fight, but Im not holding my breath.

People on this site think I fighter bash GSP and you did at one point too. Jake Shields was a legit contender, he took 2 rounds off GSP which in 8 fights nobody took one, and he still is a legit contender, he beat Ed Herman when he still wasn't 100% comfortable at MW.

You're not going to last long if you keep that up.

The timing of this was ridiculous anyway. All of the sudden after GSP has been injured for a year and a half Anderson wants to fight him? Really convenient timing there. Anderson should be defending his belt, not waiting on the sidelines for an injured welterweight. It's stupid.

GSP is talking sense here. He comes off an injury, and after one fight back the brass want to put him up against Silva? Seems like the best time for Anderson and the worst time for GSP. People complain that GSP is gonna wait it out til Anderson is vulnerable? Hell that's what's going on right now the other way round.

I agree with all of this, but how about Silva basically saying he's waiting for a super fight with GSP at the moment? Silva put it out there to begin with a few weeks ago, and Dana never denied it, yet GSP doesn't seem to be even remotely on board with this idea? Doesn't that seem a bit off? Unless I'm missing something, which could very well be true.Imo GSP is saying that even if he beats Condit, he has more to do at WW, which would take over a year.

Hahahaha you make me laugh

Man we find a way to talk about fighters like there humans. The PG attempts to be respectful to all fighters at the end of the day they go in there to fight. Also who's a pussy? GSP or you? A guy who's fought the best fighters in the world or you? The current Welterweight Champion or you?

Let's not even talk about GSP. I don't think your anything special? Have you ever competed in Pro MMA, I highly doubt it. Who's a pussy? You or a guy who's job it is to go in there risk there life and well being for there family. Now who looks like a pussy? Your place of work probably has health and safety checks, you can sue them if they damage your health, the works.

If you wanna bash some fighters go to sherdog or 99% of mma sites. If you want some intelligent debates stay on the PG.

Your opinion is completely fine man, that part is cool and appreciated but the fighter Bashing is not. We have all been warned at one time or another. I brought it to your attention and if you don't like it, again, that's fine. You can talk as much shit you want man....I don't give a fuck. Guys like you are a dime a dozen but the guys who show intellect and can do it without calling dudes pussies are the guys that get my respect

GSP knows not too look past Condit and is showing that he's focused here and he's going to need to be as Condit has the tools and been more active lately and could pull off the upset.

Completely agree with GSP. He's perfect at 170 for a number of reasons.

The WW division is interesting enough now for him to stay in there. I'd like to see him fight Condit, Diaz, Hendricks, and (even though they've sworn against it) MacDonald. That's at least a year's worth of quality MMA, likely longer due to the infrequency of title bouts and definitely longer if GSP loses any one of those.

Plus, Anderson Silva is a terrible matchup for GSP. I have this sick feeling that he'd get kneed in the face while shooting for a takedown or firing his lunging jab, and there's no one better than Anderson at finishing a wounded opponent. Anderson's coming off a clear win against one of the best MMA wrestlers who's actually going up in weight, and I'm confident he wouldn't come into the GSP fight injured or under-prepared.

Meanwhile, GSP has an excellent frame for 170. He's tall enough to be comparable to most, but not so tall that his center of gravity would affect his wrestling. He's as quick as most, as strong as most, and his cardio is always top. He's where he needs to be.

I don't seem to recall Anderson wanting to fight Evans or Rampage when his top contenders were Patrick Cote and Thales Leites.....

the timing of Silva's comments is the problem here. Why not call him out after the Shields fight instead of signing to fight Okami when GSP was still in one piece? Put yourself in GSP's shoes...you are recovering from a blown ACL and you are getting ready for your first fight in like 18 months. Where should your focus be? Why would you accept a superfight with the p4p best fighter (today) when you have no idea how your knee will hold up. Not to mention new contenders have surfaced that werent there last year at this time, whereas Silva had Belfort and Sonnen II as contenders.
