I think GSP has a solid chance of beating Silva,He's a dominant if the not the most dominant wrestler in MMA,You can argue the size difference all you want,But his explosiveness and athleticism is unreal,I think GSP grinds to a decsion.

I'm not a fan of either guy by any means,But Uncle Chael laid the blue print on how to beat Silva in their first fight.Get him on his back and keep him there,Something i think GSP can and will do.GSP's chin may be questionable (Serra fight) but since then he's been safe and utilizes his takedowns and coasts to victory,but his striking isn't terrible and Anderson is on the wrong side of his 30's one has to wonder how great his chin is as no one has really ever tested it recently or in long time that i can recall..I guess Chael did catch him in that first fight on the feet but Chael isn't known for his KO power.

If it happens,I'd take and AV bet.
