Ufc (154 spoilers)

Hey Scott, sure you know the results from ufc 154 but I'm a little manic about spoilers...



Anyway, Silva Superfights...

after 154 which Silva superfight (if any) are you most wanting to see, GSP or Jones? And how would you want them go?

Ideally I see Silva beating GSP first, then going on to Jones. But I don't know if I'd be rooting for Jones to win and send him on his way to heavyweight with that historic win, or for Silva to pull the upset (?) and retire with streak intact a la Undertaker...

Or am I discounting GSP too easily before we even get to that point?

Fantasy booking UFC obviously is even dumber than fantasy booking wrestling, but any thoughts?

It's not really a fair fight for GSP because Silva is a guy who walks around at 205 and has no problem fighting at that weight, whereas GSP would have to move up a lot of weight just to meet him in the middle.  I think that Jones v. Silva would be the better fight for both guys, because there's more upside for Jones to beat Silva and cement his legacy and Silva would have a better chance of beating Jones than anyone else. Although really, what do Silva or GSP have left to prove at this point?  Either way, White will drive a dump truck full of money up to someone's door and one of the fights will happen, no matter how the participants protest.

  1. I just can't see how GSP beats Anderson Silva. Sure, he might be able to take Silva down but eventually, Anderson is going to catch him with something over five rounds. And Silva's ground game is pretty slick as well since he's submitted some top level guys.


    Now Anderson vs. Jon Jones is something I think MMA needs. It will be the biggest fight in the sport's history.

  2. I'm with you. I think Bones-Silva is by far the more intriguing fight. That being said, GSP looked great against Condit and I have a hard time picturing a welterweight to challenge him. Diaz? Taken down and smothered. Hendricks? Picked apart on the feet.

  5. Silva isn't going to fight Bones. He knows he'd lose to Bones and he'd beat GSP, as does everybody else.
