Default Re: UFC SUPER FIGHT Georges St. Pierre vs. Anderson Silva

I can see why Silva is heavily pushing for this fight.

- He should be the heavy favourite going into the fight.

- He probably doesn't have too many fights left in him at this high level so, smartly, he wants some big-time paydays. That's why a Silva-Weidman fight will probably never happen even though he looks like a decent contender.


Other than the huge one-time payday, I don't see why GSP would be eager to do this though. He still has several years left and he's going to be a big draw regardless of who he fights. I don't think he's close to being done with WW either.
