Has it occurred to you that maybe GSP maintains the pace he does because he assumes his fights will go five rounds?
The fact is he dominates his opponents for five rounds at a time and never seems to gas. Cardio is, at worst, a wash.
As for the rest of the matchup - the striking is close, but irrelevant. GSP is the best MMA wrestler ever. if he wants to take the fight to the ground, it goes to the ground. Is Silva a good enough grappler to submit GSP off his back? Doubtful.
