Why Silva shouldn't do it
* There are better fights for him at 205! No disrespect to gsp but Silva is the much bigger man and should win that fight. If Silva wins that fight, it doesn't prove as much as if he moved up and beat Rua. Bones/Silva would be awesome.Both of those matches are much more even IMO and would do more for his legacy. Beating Rua or jones to become a 2 division champion would quite the accomplishment. Especially being that he'd probably go into those fights as the underdog. If silva only has 3-4 fights left before he's done, he could stay at 185 and fight okami,gsp,sonnen. While those fights have more flash and hype(minus okami) ,finishing his career at 205 fighting the likes of rua,jones,evans, and winning the title there would have more substance. Not saying that staying at 185 would be a cakewalk,tose would all be tough fights, but beating the best at 205 would take him to another level.
Why GSP shouldn't do it.
* If gsp was older and was towards the end of his career, I would be like some of you saying "move up and stop being scared" But gsp is young and in his prime.He is right now the most dominant ww champion ever. He's got endorsments and making money most fighters can only dream of. Why make a move in weight that he can make later? Maybe gsp doesn't think he'll be as effective with the extra weight. Look at BJ Penn. Sure he fought at any weight but he was most effective at 155, and his career would look alot different if he had stayed there instead of bouncing around. And if he does want to move, for god's sake don't make your 1st fight at 185 be against the spider. That's one hell of a trial by fire. Remember that spider's 1st fight at 205 was against that world beater James Irvin.
Why we shouldn't want it.
* Let's be honest. Most of the people calling gsp a pussy right now just want to see him get beat up. For those people one of 2 things happen. Silva ko's gsp and they all get to call him a pussy and talk about how he really isn't that good or gsp wins a decision and they talk about how gsp was scared to stand with silva and humped his way to another victory. I don't care if gsp goes to 185, but allow the man to ease into the weight class before he has to fight one of the greatest of all time. And as far as silva goes, I just want to see him and shogun fight. That is my dream superfight.
Well I'm done babbling for now. Peace out maniacs!
