I think it's a funny and refreshingly honest comment. He could spout a bunch of BS about GSP having the bigger name and being the greater challenge more important to his legacy etc. Instead he tells the truth, it's an easier fight.

I don't think Anderson is huge for his weight class at all. He's smaller than tons of MWs out there. I'd say he's pretty much average for a MW.


He was almost the same size as Bonnar the other night

How can you say this but say GSP is "huge" for WW when guys like Condit, Kampmann, Shields (when he was a WW), Maia, Alves, Hughes, Dan Miller, among others are bigger than he is. Anderson comfortably fights at LHW, that in no way shape or form is an "average" MW

I don't know what the hell you're smoking but you should share.

Anderson Silva is TALL but he isn't BIG. He's a very thin guy.

Okami, Belfort, Franklin, Cote, Marquardt, Sonnen, and Leben are all "bigger than him."

Basically he's been the smaller man in every MW fight he's had in the UFC except for Maia, Lutter, and Leites.

well then both are in the same boat. You say Silva is "average" but GSP is "huge", I say Silva is "huge" and GSP is "bigger but not near the biggest"...if anything both are the same relative to their division

this really made me laugh. I wasn't even bent out of shape. You acted like I bashed him or something. I even gave him respect in the middle of the post

What you think is a joke. Get over it. People get angry from time to time, telling people to 'settle down' does not advance the conversation in anyway but to raise ire, especially online.

No real need for us all to get irked over what I posted. I don't mind being called out for what I write, I mean, its an open forum, right. I wasn't uncomfortable with what he said at all but maybe a little ignorant cuz I thought it was serious. My bad I've already messages cooler about it so we should be cool. Next time, ill wait until I'm fully awake to post a reply
