Anderson Silva talks superfights

I suppose it shouldn’t be a shocker to hear that a fighter wants the superfights he thinks he’ll win rather than the ones he might lose. That’s why GSP never follows up his standard “I want to be known as the best martial artist ever” comment with the necessary follow-up “Therefore I shall fight Anderson Silva.” And why Andy is perfectly willing to bang the drum for a GSP fight, but when it comes to Jon Jones…

On a potential superfight with Georges St. Pierre:

“GSP is very educated and I like him a lot. A fight against him would be very, very, very big and this could actually happen.”

On fighting Jon Jones:

“I don’t plan on moving up in weight anymore. He’s in a different weight (class). I train with bigger guys, such as Lyoto Machida and Big Nog and I know how complicated it is. …Every time I see Jones I tell him to keep focus, because if he does that, there’s no opponent for him. He’s better than everyone. He’d have a lot of advantages (over me), he’s much younger and it wouldn’t be something interesting (for me).”

Well, at least he’s being honest about it. “He’s younger and has too many advantages, so no thanks” is on par with “How about I just admit I’d lose and let’s never speak of this again.” That’s all I ask of dudes ducking fights. Just admit it’s because you don’t think you’ll win.

    Or admit you don’t think it’s a fair fight given the weight differences?

    It is hard to talk about pussyitus. I’m glad he has gone public now he can move on with his life. I am sure it is quite a weight lifted off his shoulders. Maybe he can try some group therapy or something as long as george isn’t in there because that would just be awkward.

  • Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this,
    like you wrote the book in it or something. I
    think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a little
    bit, but other than that, this is excellent blog. An excellent read.
    I will definitely be back.
