That’s the match to make. In July of 2017, when UFC have their biggest event, this is fight that sells. This fight is like the Mayweather and Pacquiao fight. This fight should have happened years ago, when both fighters were at their prime. But that’s not how it works in the fight game. In the fight game, the fight fans gotta wait. But is the wait worth after so many years? Absolutely a Daniel Bryan YES! But Mayweather vs Pacquiao did not live up to the hype and the controversy surrounding the shoulder injury later left a bad taste. Maybe GSP takes Silva down all the five rounds and bore the shit outa fans and we see an absolutely boring fight. Or maybe not. We may see the best of pure mixed martial arts from two of the very very best to ever do it. Yes. NOW THAT IS EXCITING. And that is why this match has to happen. Better later than never.
Yes there’s Nick Diaz and the winner of Woodley/ Thomson fight. But they can wait. Yes there’s time for all that to happen later. Oh! And Thomson says he won’t fight GSP if he wins. Hmm. So maybe the best fight to make is Silva vs GSP. And Anderson winning his previous fight, though controversy surrounding it, helps. The build up to this can be zoomed by UFC and definitely can be tagged as a ‘Once in a lifetime’. Wow just thinking of fight gives me goosebumps. Make it happen UFC. It’s long time coming.
BETTER LATE THAN NEVER.
UFC PPV: The returning great George ‘Rush’ St-Pierre vs the greatest of all time Anderson ‘spider’ Silva.
