    A report from Anderson's mini-presser today:

    Ed Soares says Anderson has two fights left on his current UFC contract.
    AS says GSP looks to be next & maybe Jones, I don't know. This is Dana's decision.

    Silva wants no part of JJ. He wants GSP because no matter the catchweight, AS will have a gigantic size advantage.

    I think he knows that the Jones fight will be even bigger than GSP so he is playing it smart for a paycheck

    I don't think AS get enough credit when it comes to the business side of his career,

    Saying he wants to take a break until December knowing that the UFC is basically planning for a super fight was pretty smart.

    He has 2 fights left in his contract, but I won't be surprised if he gets a new one. Fights vs GSP and Jones are big money makers, AS will want to be paid accordingly.

    In other words, if the UFC wants it in May, it will cost them more money.

    Here is a recap that isn't good but still not a definitive NO

    Meh. This whole superfight talk is too much like boxing. They want to fight? Let 'em. They don't want to fight? Whatever. This road leads to MMA Mayweathers and that's not what I would like for this sport.

    Its getting to that point
    Dana obviously really wants this & needs another big thing to hype to get people talking UFC
    He threw boatloads at Lesnar & Fedor for a match to no avail & is desperate for this

    One would get injured anyway
