"What happened is they're both close to cleaning out their division. If Anderson (Silva) beats Vitor Belfort and (Georges) St. Pierre beats Jake Shields, seriously, what's left for them?"Lorenzo Fertitta agrees:
"It's a fun fight to do."
"The fans [understand] that (moving up weight classes is a long-standing tradition for any elite fighter). No doubt about it. That's what I love about this fight. I'm all about legacy. That's what matters more than the money. I love it if a guy will go up for a super fight like this. Anderson Silva has already moved up and fought at 205. For 'GSP' to do it, I think it's big for his legacy."
