"The pickings in each fighter’s respective weight class are somewhat slim and Silva is 37 years of age, nearing the end of his career.
A super fight between the two makes more and more sense as the fights go by, and now, it looks as if it is becoming less of a dream and more of a reality, even to the boss."

It makes sense now but it made even more sense 1 or 2 years ago. This fight has to happen within the next year or we'll have "Silva was past his prime." issues to wonder about forever (if GSP were to win that is which I don't expect to happen). I hope GSP has no ill effects from the layoff and beats Condit easily, that would really set the atmosphere for this fight.

I really hope this happens, cmon Dana you are always claiming that MMA doesn't do what boxing does so don't Maywether-Pacman blue ball me here.

Oh em gee I can't freaking wait. I just hope GSP gets through Condit with no injury so this freaking thing finally happens. Catch weight is the perfect idea; both belts are left intact so it doesn't completely mess a division up and it levels the playing field ever so slightly for the clearly much smaller man. I've never said this before, but if anyone can beat Anderson I think it is GSP. I think Anderson will be the favorite but GSP is going to be really hard to stuff.

Jens Pulver, greatest lightweight striker of all time, no seriously.

I feel like that's his plan as well.

If GSP was not coming off a injury with a huge layoff I'd say that's crazy even so its still unlikely. We know what george dose when he's pulled out of his comfort zone and Condit can't stop him from just being careful and coasting to a win. Unless he pulls off a sub from bottom (unlikely) I don't see him winning.

Jens Pulver, greatest lightweight striker of all time, no seriously.

As much as I would like to see this fight, I think Condits going to KO GSP and spoil this party.

This does have Cowboy Stadium written all over it, neutral ground (Canada and Brazil) but March 2013 at the earliest, neither has been known to fight on a quick turnaround, and Nov 17 to Feb 3 (Superbowl card) is just too quick.

Ufc Events Attended:

Ufc Fight Night: Davis Vs Nogueira, Ufc 131, Ufc 143, Ufc 148, Ufc on Fox 5, Ufc 156, Ufc on Fox 8

I have little interest in a good sized LHW who is considered the best fighter in the world right now, fighting a medium sized WW who would have at the time 1 fight in a whole year's time.

Have him fight Jones and I'll be more interested.

Is that prediction based in your observations that Condit is just that much better than GSP, or because GSP will be so ring-rusty, or what?

Silva would smack the taste out of GSP's mouth and for me this fight is unnecessary, Silva is no longer a healthy WW and GSP is not a modern MW.

GSP will do well to get past Condit, as good as he is he's just recieved the snakebite that is major knee injury, we'll see how he is.

And No Mercy, are you practicing your MMA article skills on us with these threads?!

I think this would screw up GSP's career. He moves up to middleweight, and if he loses to Anderson Silva in devastating fashion, he has nowhere else to go. He said the move up to middleweight would be permanent. If Silva wins and retires, and GSP wins the belt after that, he would have no credibility as middleweight champion.

I would much rather see Silva fight Jones, where he retires after the fight. Jones still has the option of moving up to heavyweight even if he loses. If he wins, UFC finally has a new superstar.

Of course, if Silva and GSP fights, I would still watch it.
