It's like saying Silva has a problem with boxing defence because he stands there and let opponents punch him in the face. He gets taken down easy because he's confident they cant do anything to him there... and by all evidence... they cant.
What exactly is GSP going to do when he advanaces position anyway? GnP him out? No. Sub him? No. I mean that would actually be a good gameplan for SIlva if he does get taken down. Let GSP advanace and maybe even go for a sub and it gives Silva room to get up. Instead of sitting in guard all fight. I think Anderson will just engolf GSP with his elite guard defense.
Anderson would play around with GSP because he would even be less worried about a devistating shot or sub than more guys.
