Doesnt stand a chance against GSP, but give it to him just so he’ll shut up.

The only way GSP should fight Silva is if Silva will fight him at 175 or less. Anymore than that and GSP would have all the cards stacked against him.

To me it would make more sense for Silva to fight Jones at 205, a weight that he often fights at, but noooooo Silva wants the fight he has a better chance of winning.

I agree with bobbo

Big deal. Kampmann gets hit a lot. He finally faced the guy with the power to put him away. Let’s not fool ourselves into believing that Kampmann was invincible.

GSP was 190 pounds at fight night. If GSP did not have to dehydrate to 170 pounds for weigh ins, he could make it to 200 pounds, which is the same weight Anderson Silva fights at.

Hendricks is no joke, GSP will prolly grind him out, but he’s got skills on the ground as well. That was a great combo, Kampmann should have known better.

Yeah people give crap to GSP because he doesn’t want to go UP in weight to fight the p4p best in the world…Why not give crap to Bendo because he doesn’t fight at 170,or Jon Jones because he doesn’t fight Heavyweights…To me there’s weightclasses for a reason.

The 1st GIF is the definition of a Douchebag.If somebody ever asks you what’s a douchebag,don’t waste your time explaining with words,show them that GIF and they will instantly know what a douchebag is.

If you were fighting a huge fight for lots of money and career changing implications.. you’d probably go with the slightly easier fight..

me too, but maybe hes just taking on the little guy first

I think to beat Jones is too early in the game especially if Silva isn’t trying to win that division anyway. GSP has been around for a long time just as Silva has. Yeah Jones is the thing now but he is still young and rising. I wouldnt say he’s created a legacy yet Maybe thats what is in Silva’s mind…who knows…

cgbloke Says, in 11-19-2012 at 17:34:24 from    

If I were Anderson Silva and was thinking about retiring and really cementing my legacy then beating Jon Jones and being the first person to hold two belts at the same time is the best way to go out. Even if Silva and GSP fight there will always be people saying that it was lopsided and that Silva had all of the advantages. Beating Jones (which I totally think he could do) would give him the Legacy that everyone thinks Fedor has

kung fu…you should be ashamed you forgot the douchebag’s friend.

Joe Dog Says, in 11-19-2012 at 19:51:50 from    

Would a fight with Jones be a LHW championship fight??? I think Silva needs to clean out the MW division where it counts. His days / fights are limited.

OverHandGoodNight Says, in 11-19-2012 at 20:41:16 from    

I’ve liked Hendricks since his KO on Amir and I don’t know why everyone is talking about Bones and Silva on a Hendricks GIF? Please explain.

Don’t really know what Dana is doing with these stupid “super fights” – really the only honorable options are GSP vs Hendricks and Silva vs Weidman

fedoram Says, in 11-20-2012 at 01:06:22 from    

Silva walks around 220 pounds and GSP walks around 185

Comeatmebro Says, in 11-20-2012 at 02:47:15 from    

Kampman would give GSP a btter fight, Hendricks has got power but no reach and he would have to fight George inside, If he gets near him..to the ground he stays and lays. I do not blame Dana for milking Silva/GSP/Jones for all their worth, Silva will hang it up sooner or later, he started looking rusty after the 1st Chael fight and that was vs him when he had Travis Lutter and Franklin 2x, The 205 fights were jokes. This is a dying industry, I can’t see this sport lasting more then 2-4 years.

c Hill Says, in 11-20-2012 at 03:21:24 from    

agreed with many. would like to see silva vs jones the most.

facefrack Says, in 11-20-2012 at 03:41:10 from    

I think I’ve decided that I would actually be much more interested in the Silva vs. GSP superfight than I would in Silva vs. Jones. GSP is stylistically well primed for the fight, since he has possibly the most explosive takedowns of anyone in MMA with excellent top-control n guard-passing skills, which are all things that Silva has presented a weakness with in the past. GSP is also a more disciplined fighter than Chael Sonnen n seems much less likely to be caught by Silva’s triangle chokes, etc. He should look for a better way to open a closed guard than using the can-opener though, because the extra length n leverage that Silva will undoubtedly have would probably be tougher to shrug off than Carlos Condit’s. GSP is excellent at closing the distance with a takedown move, which means that he might be able to avoid clinch situations where Silva could KO him with devastating knees. The main thing he would need to avoid would be standing n trading with him. This little Russian roulette style game that Silva likes to play where he drops his hands n just waits for punches to counter is a game that GSP would almost certainly lose (like either the Griffin or Bonner fights). All in all, I like this match-up a lot.

Now, don’t get me wrong. If Silva fought Jonny Bones, I would be going bananas just like all of you, but I also consider it a fight that Silva would be very unlikely to win. Silva’s knees from in the clinch – easily his most devastating strike – would be near impossible to pull off against Bones, since he is both too tall n also among the very best Greco Roman wrestlers in the UFC. Silva’s punch n kick accuracy is another of his main strengths n likely the best chance he would have for winning, because since he greatly prefers to counterstrike than attack preemptively, he might be able to slip a punch or two, throw a couple strikes n return to the outside. That is not at all a safe bet, however, because Jones’ height n reach advantage mean that staying on the outside would leave him open to many more strikes than he would be able to return. He would have a punchers chance if he could stop it from going to the ground, but what seems most likely – not certain, but very likely – is that Bones would force a clinch situation, ragdoll him to the ground n then batter him with punches n elbows from guard, half-guard, and/or side-control.

I may still believe that Anderson Silva is the pound-for-pound best fighter in the world, but that doesn’t mean he is invincible n the (mostly unspoken (at least in English)) reasons that he has for hesitating to fight Bones are legit. GSP vs. Silva, however, might be a truly awesome match-up.

dat was shocking, dude gat sum power in his his hands thou

Swordsmansmith Says, in 11-20-2012 at 15:32:08 from    

GSP stands no chance at beating Silva. Hendricks is the fight to make. Guy has beaten everyone relevant at 170.

monkmethod Says, in 11-20-2012 at 15:47:51 from    

I think the punch itself didn’t really do much damaged compared to him hitt the back of his head against the mat.. I would have liked to see 1 more punch land undefended because kampman wasn’t really “out” or hurt.

Al Cahol Says, in 11-21-2012 at 11:36:03 from    

Anderson Silva is retiring soon and cares about one thing and one thing only… money.
If he was offered $100 million to fight a chimpanzee he would take that over GSP or Jones any day.
He has 2 fights left, after which he will likely retire.
If he loses to Jones, people will not be as hyped to see him against GSP. He believes (rightfully so due to the size advantage) that GSP would be an easier fight. Hence the formula that will equal the most income for him would be to fight GSP, and then set up the ultimate super fight with Jones. $$$
On a separate note… gsp would beat Silva anyway so whatever
