“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.
