but everytime some1 asks GSP about anderson he responds with ''i think i can beat him, its just a matter of putting on the weight the right way'' or ''i think i could compete at MW''
damn if he isnt sure just admit you would get your ass kicked and that you want to stay at WW
Yer couldn't agree more. But fact is GSP isn't that much smaller than AS. Even Kos is around 200, i bet GSP is around 205-210. AS used to be very light for MW but i think he walks around 220 now days, either way the weight difference between two aren't that great and they can easily fight at catch weight(say 175-180) so i dont think there would be any unfair disadvantage for GSP.
Height difference shouldn't make the fight unfair, there are heaps of tall(slimmer) fighters in UFC and many got beaten by shorter(stocky) fighters. I think it comes down more to the training, skill, game plan, endurance and maybe bit of luck.
