Anderson Silva is angling for a catchweight fight with McGregor

Recommended Posts

... and it's probably the saddest thing I've ever seen in MMA. 

He keeps talking about a fight at 180 pounds with McGregor. I get it, Conor is the money fight, but there's just something desperate about these old guys calling out people 30 pounds lighter than them to try to get wins.

Same thing is happening with GSP and Khabib. GSP in all his desperation to stay relevant is now aiming for that fight. It's pathetic.

Anderson should fight Costa and see if he still can fight with the big boys after they took away his **** pills. And GSP needs to find his sack and take the Woodley fight. Stop embarrassing the sport.

gsp has made it clear that from here on in he is only looking for fights that will bring in the money and add to his legacy.   woodley spent 25 minutes running away from demian maia and he doesnt sell ppv's. he's not qualified to be worthy of gsp's attention.    khabib however is 27-0, undefeated, a world champion, and he's guaranteed to draw in buys from this point on, especially from the casuals after he creampied the ufc's poster boy. if they didnt know who this man is before, they will now, and theyll watch his fights.

theres no other qualified candidate to fight saint georges at the moment. the great khabib is the best option. plus the two of them want to fight each other, and i dont foresee khabib jumping the cage to go after firas zihabi after the fight is all over.

but khabib vs tony needs to happen first. if khabib wins it further helps to cement gsp's legacy once he takes the khabib fight.

he's already done everything there is to do and will go down as the greatest. he doesnt have anything left to prove.  the only thing he has left to fight for is money and competition and a challenge to himself.  he wouldnt gain any of that from laying on woodley for 25 minutes just to win back a title that nobody was able to take from him after he cleaned out the division.

he's just not going to take a fight with woodley because legacy wise, he has nothing to gain but everything to lose. if he lays on woodley just to win back a belt he no longer cares about, so what? who cares? he was able to beat tyron woodley, good for him.  waste of a fight when there are bigger fish in the pond.  woodley hasnt really done anything impressive lately, if ever at all,. and he's not enough of a draw to help pamper up gsp's bank account, so whats the point of taking that fight at this point in time? 

how eager would you be to see tyron getting his oil checked for the entire fight? no doubt thats probably what would end up happening. gsp is too smart to even consider standing and banging and put himself in a position where he could be knocked out, and play into woodleys only strength. if you expect that to happen youd be an idiot. gsp would be securing the double leg and giving tyron a deep probing. all day.   tyron would have to force gsp to stand there and eat his shots and hope that one or two can put gsp away before he runs out of gas and gets taken down some more.  i dont see that going over at all.

khabib would be a much more meaningful fight for him in every aspect, and it would be interesting to see whos wrestling and technical skills would prevail. and gsp would be more eager to strike with khabib than he would with tyron, so at least it might actually look more like something that resembles a fight, at least in the eyes of the casuals.

after becoming the most dominant welterweight champion the world will ever see, defeating every opponent he has ever faced, breaking all kinds of records along the way, and winning the middleweight title in brutalcore fashion, gsp has earned the right to pick his last fights. its all about the big money legacy fights from here on in, or he's just not going to bother. he doesnt have to.

Woodley couldn't sell a sack of potatoes to an Irishman.

 

I agree GSP fighting down does nothing for his legacy, but fighting Woodley does nothing for his legacy or his bank account. 

 

Boring or not at least grease cleaned out his division, is by holding up belts, and is being honest as he just wants money fights that make him look better. The rest of these guys think they are MMA legends the moment they win a belt and think they are done fighting challenges.

I don't quite see how Silva calling for a "catchweight" fight at 180 against a former 145er is comparable to GSP apparently cutting all the  way down to 155, the division just below his own to get a fight with  155er.

GSP just fought at middleweight. Khabib just fought at lightweight.

Andy fights at middleweight. Conor just fought at lightweight.

Is this hard to comprehend or what?

let it be known that the other day gsp stated that he was walking around right now at 183 pounds. which is far lighter than he was when he was competing at welterweight.   he could make 155 if he wanted to.

or he could take it even further and cut down even more to featherweight and bully around a bunch of midgets. thats what conor was doing for all of his career. prior to losing to nate diaz of course.

Khabib started his career at welterweight.  GSP is tiny compared to real middleweights.  They are actually very similar in size Georges just has about 6 inches of reach.

Anderson is much more pathetic IMO.  You said 30 pounds difference.  McGregor has never weighed more than 175 in his life and straight from Anderson's mouth he has said he can walk at 225.  That's 50 pounds which is ridiculous as Conor only weighed 168 for welterweight bouts and is a FW/LW while Anderson is a MW/LHW.  What bothers me is Anderson saying "It's not about the money"

Yes it most definitely is about the money.  At the end of the day though it was Conor that said he wanted to fight Anderson but it was while he was coked up and drunk.

It's hard to comprehend that someone can be so stupid that they can't register some basic facts like that GSP fought at MW as a WW taking a fight above his natural weight class when 95% of his career happened at WW while Silva is a MW who's fought at LHE four times.

Or do you think BJ Penn  was ecer a true 225er?

I guess you also missed the part where Silva challenges a guy 2 weightclasses below his own to fight at a catchweight 5 lbs below his own but 25lbs abovethat of the guy he's calling out? Which is, to anyone with a brain that works, vastly different than proposing to actually make the weight of the guy's division.

If Anderson can go five rounds with the Heavyweight champion and hurt him with a kick coming in as a late replacement after having gallbladder surgery less than two months before then I think he probably kills Conor.
