Anderson would knock gsp out on the feet , knock him out with an upkick or sub him off his back . I don't see how gsp can win . Gsp wouldn't beat rich franklin , let alone A silva.

Anderson is questionably faster, no doubt stronger, more technical in most areas of his game, and much bigger than GSP. GSP is a great wrestler but Anderson has dealt with bigger and stronger wrestlers almost with ease. I just don't see how GSP will win.

I think after the gsp/penn fight Georges WIN or lose should fight Alves and after that maybe Silva
but not next Penns already ******* around and delaying the 155 title defense cant have silva and St Pierre doing the same

I just hope that GSP doesn't play it ultra safe like he did in the Serra rematch. I mean come on is he that scared of receiving a punch?
GSP vs Silva might just become a lay and pray for GSP if he doesn't first get KOed in the first round.



Yeah cuz it would make sense for GSP to go in and exchange with Silva.....like it would make sense for GSP to get in a slug fest with Serra?????....LOL......It's not cuz he's scared of taking a punch (he's an mma fighter).....its an issue of forming a game plan that will be advantageous and then implementing it.

BJ has a much better shot at beating Silva than Georges does IMO.

You should never express an original idea, ever.

I've got penn winning in the 4th. I would still love to see the fight though. If it's at catch weight who cares about rankings. It's just a great fight.

Honestly- of all the champions; Silva is the one who most deservedly belongs in super fights. There isn't a clear-cut #1 contender in his division right now, and everyone who is close is someone who Silva has destroyed already anyway. I'm sure he'll defend the belt as soon as there is a suitable opponent for him.

I've been asking for GSP/Silva since long before they ever started talking about a Penn fight. And I completely agree with it being at a catch-weight. No Sense in potentially tieing up yet another weight division. Lets have the fight so we can answer some P4P questions. This isn't about belts; it's about history. If GSP can get past Penn, and defend against Alves then there will be no one else in the UFC more deserving of a fight with arguably the P4P king.
