Why GSP versus Diaz Has to Happen - Page 2
Ultimately, I think we may have been believing in a fairy tale that never really had any credibility. We wanted a superfight, but we got carried away, overlooking some serious obstacles to its occurrence.
There are still good fights for GSP at 170 lbs. There are still good fights for Anderson at 185 lbs. What does the UFC gain by either fighter “cleaning out a division”? What does it say about the guys in a division if it CAN BE cleaned out? I think Dana said it best during an interview with Ariel Helwani after UFC 129 on Saturday night, when he said: “Yeah, there’s always going to be fights out there at 170 that are interesting, there’s going to be new guys coming up…”
There will always be an interesting fight out there. Superfights are a dream, not a reality. GSP vs. Diaz is a GOOD potential fight. I want to see it. A lot of fans want to see it. Let’s let GSP be the best at 170 lbs. Let’s let Anderson Silva be the best at 185 lbs. I can be happy with that. Can you?
