Erick has the tools and mentality to put on mad fights for a while to come, and take out big names in doing so.
I wouldn't ponder the GSP question until he fights Condit, his injury is no joke and if he were to lose the title I'm not sure he'd bother trying to get it back.
I like the thinking behind this. Silva def. reminds me of the young Berserker from PRIDE
GSP has been soo dominant, but this injury he's had ends most guys careers.
I'd love to see how he handles Condit. Back to the Silva debate... is he a talent and force to be reckoned with? Yes
Can he beat GSP now? Not a chance, but he's growing in the sport and these young guys are definitely evolving quicker with each generation.
