I'm not even a big anderson fan but you guys calling him a coward need to realize he's right jones is by far the biggest lhw in the ufc he would make forrest look small. Anderson at 14 and 0 in the ufc.has nothing to prove esspecially fighting a guy who dwarfs him. I'll even go as far as say the real super fight people aren't clamoring for they should be is jones vs cain. I honestly am very confident jones and cain are more around the same weight pre weight ins then silva jones. Silva isn't even a massive middleweight like cheal.or okami why set him up to fight the biggest and longest fighter a weight class above him.

Jones is a bad match for Silva. Machida needs to get back in the title hunt.

Actually, welter weight to middle weight is the smallest jump in the UFC's traditional weight classes (155-HWY).

See now GSP's comments about moving up in weight aren't so bad (except to the haters of course) It just boils down to the fact that not even a ninja wants to fight a gorilla. Also, GSP never said no to fight Silva haha the robot just has to add more metal to bulk up first, cause he wants to take his job not his pride (hope the fight never happens personlay would rather nethier fighter add a blip to thier record, cuz this fight will always be a lose-lose to the guy thats been in the bigger weight class)
Even if I had a double barrel blackcat roman candle I wouldn't want to fight Jones so I can't blame Silva for feeling the same way

How is Silva going to complain about not facing stiffer competition and dance around the cage like an idiot when the fighter doesn't measure up but then duck an equally talented fighter who could challenge him?

Atleast if Silva would fight Jones, he would make an argument as to why GSP should vacate his belt, prove something that is not needed for his career and do it at great risk to his future.

I am so disapointed in Silva.,


If Silva won't fight Jones, why should GSP fight Silva?


Anderson said he was freinds with Jones?

what happened to Silva fighting at Hw?

It sounds like he i afraid of Jones. It's really a shame because I was looking forward to this super fight. I think Shogun must of told him not to fight Jones..



what would shogun matter.. they dont train together
