Yes... this is the match-up I'd very much love to see!
I could imagine WWIII on stand-up with Anderson and his superb striking and Rua with his lethal kicks. The clinch work would be brutal Muay Thai.... ohh it makes me shiver
On the subject of GSP vs. Silva.... (this coming from a BIG GSP fan and fellow Canadian)
He doesn't stand much of a chance. I agree to whomever said each holds a strength to the others weakness. Silva is just to big and strong for GSP. He's a very big MW and GSP is a smaller WW.
We know GSP doesn't like to get hit (Serra gave him a nice crack). Silva's striking is just soo damned brutal and accurate.
I personally don't think GSP wants to fight Silva right now unless he could majorly bulk up.
