dana doesn't really think anderson is #1 pfp

everything blaf does is calculated to further the organization

blaf saying that silva is #1 pfp is just a subtle troll to shame gsp into moving up to fight anderson

"ok, gsp, you've cleared out the division, there are no more viable matchups for you, but you refuse to move up? fine, you are not the pfp best"

lorenzo has said he wants gsp to move up and whatever lorenzo says, dana does..im sure there has been a lot behind the scenes to pressure gsp to move up and he has balked...

note that dana emphasizes how anderson moved up to 205 as part of his reason why anderson is best pfp

 Anderson IS the #1 P4P....It doesn't matter what Dana thinks, it's just the truth.

 About a year ago it was



1) Fedor (but about to be demoted if didn't fight credible opponent soon)

2) Anderson

3) GSP/ BJ (too close to call)







Anderson is now the P4P King.

how is anderson #1 pfp when he got his ass thoroughly handed to him for 95% of his fight against chael? that wasnt a flash KO or flash submission, anderson was CLEARLY inferior

But Anderson is p4p #1. Gsp has won 30 rounds straight, Anderson hasn't even fought 30 rounds in almost double the amount of fights and won all the fights. Numbers speak for themselves hombre.

goku - how is anderson #1 pfp when he got his ass thoroughly handed to him for 95% of his fight against chael? that wasnt a flash KO or flash submission, anderson was CLEARLY inferior


1) Anderson won

2) Chael lost





Those are just the facts.

If thats all it takes, have GSP move up to 185 and fight Marvin Eastman or Patrick Cote.
That's about equal to the competition they gave Silva. They didn't have Silva move up and fight Shogun or Rashad did they?
Sometimes Dana makes such foolish statements. I know they are deliberate but they are so annoying to listen to.

Clearly inferior fighters don't hold on all fight and then submit you after you've "dominated" them all fight(without doing any damage I must add). GSP tapped to Serra's stikes...Anderson took like what over 200 strikes from Sonnen when he was on the ground and STILL finished the fight. GSP got dominated for a couple seconds tapped like a bitch, Anderson got dominated for 4 rounds and his opponent tapped like a bitch. Case closed

for a simpleton, yes...but if you try to use some intelligence and insight, you will realize that the W or L is not everything

I realize Cote and him are friends and are/were training partners...just trying to give a good comparison in the claiber of fighters were talking about here

Even though Forrest has beat Shogun and Rampage who are both top 5, and was 1 fight removed from the title...

Darth BLAF - <p>Thanks for making a brand new thread about this instead of just putting it into the thread (where everyone else is discussing it) that you're obviously responding to.

You self-important attention whoring fuck!</p>


lmao

I AM A MOFO - Dana says that because the other contenders for that title in his org are marketable and likable.



Dana insists it's Anderson because that's pretty much the only way to sell the guy.
 

Anderson is the only champion that Dana has threatened to put on the undercard. Dana labels Anderson #1 pfp to garner some hype for his fights "watch the greatest fighter in UFC history fight, and witness history even though the fight might end up boring as shit" . Even though GSP has cleaned out the much tougher WW division, he doesn't need the pfp label to create hype for his fights.

Edit: basically what I AM A MOFO said.

 

























 





Goku you are correct it wasn't a flash submission. It wasn't lucky. It was a calculated submission attempt to finish a roided out wrestler who had dominant position for almost 5 full rounds but still couldn't finish the job. Phone Post

 Oh...and....



Anderson Silva Knocks Down Forrest Griffin UFC 101 Declaration

Running from Leites? Did you even watch that fucking fight? Leites fell onto his back any time Anderson hit him. You see what happened to Fedor when he dove into a Jiu Jitsu guys guard like a retard? He's no longer the P4P or #1 Heavyweight..that's what.

might have something to do with he fact that Anderson isn't a huge draw and Dana feels he needs to publicize him more.

That or Andersons matrix-like stand up just impresses him more
