Silva's size advantage wont matter during the fight because he is going to spend 25 minutes on his back getting pounded on



If the fight goes down, ive got a quarter bag of kush that says otherwise, none of the shitty Hamilton stuff either, licensed grower out in the country.

If you still feel the same way lemme know haha

I'll AV bet ya on this fight if it happens. I think this fight is 50/50 but I'm willing to go with my boy GSP. I personally think his takedowns will be the difference in this match up I've always felt that way. If Anderson cant stuff the takedown he is going to lose and if he can he will win.

GSP just beat a man the same height as Andy with only 1.5" less reach.. I don't think it'll be much of a problem for Georges. Especially with that superman punch he can hit from wayyyy out

I just dont see GSP being strong enough to take him down consistently, and the odd takedown he does hit I dont think hes strong enough to keep him there, and if Condit can catch GSP with a kick Silva will catch him too.

Lol I bet youd love to change my av, probly the worst moment of his career for ya

Gsp is too small to be a threat to Silva . The dude looked the same size as Forrest when they fought and Forrest is a big LHW!



Even if Silva had to make 170lbs for the fight to happen?



Then it'd be interesting because he'd lose some of his strength advantage from the weight cut. If Silva could make 170 I'd be so shocked I'd pull this face.



... And I'd be like Because Silva vs GSP is almost as good as Silva Vs Bones

I'll take that quarter off your hands I don't plan on betting or paying for it, but if you wanna get rid of it I'll take it
