Why would I root for someone who is fighting one of my favorite fighters? Especially when it's Fitch.

Erick Silva has great technique, he's fearless, and he's very aggressive... as far as the GSP question goes, I'll simply say out of those three traits GSP only has one. That isn't to say of course there isn't a list of things GSP outshines him in.

Either way, as my sig does read, and has read for a very long time... Erick Silva is the future of the 170lbs division.

Also, to the OP... men tend to "peak" more in their very early 30s physically... so if he stays healthy and active, we haven't seen the best Erick Silva yet. Of course the same can be said or GSP.

PLEASE DON'T POST THESE THREADS!

I would love to be a Gustaf or Weidman fan, but because their skills are so insanley overrated around the forums I've found myself hating them. I'm a big Erick Silva fan and the more "He's the best in the divison" threads that get posted, the more I'll want the guy to lose.

Based on pre-injury form, GSP wins each category. Boxing is more important IMO when you're also such a good wrestler. Silva can go for his kicks, GSP would most likely take him down even easier.

GSP is the best wrestler for take downs and TDD. And can easily control the fight from top.

With regards to stamina, GSP is able to implement his game play through 5 rounds, and doesn't seem to gas. I can't see how he loses this category, while Silva is an unknown quantity in championship rounds.

Gus has a more legit record than weidman. Neither have beaten top level guys but Gus has beaten more mid level fighters by far. Weidman beat the overhyped mark Munoz who was coming off a long layoff and surgery that's it.

I think they are both very good prospects but neither is ready for the champ.

Dude, you're NOT the center of this universe, so why should people act acording to what you find best?
And, why do you change your opinion on a x fighter acording to what other people say?
Feck that shit, if i'm a fan of someone it's because of what they are and the way they fight, what mma fans say on a internet forum doesn't influence that at all.

I agree that munoz wasnt in the best shape possible but hes a top 5 MW and weidman made him look like an amature, it was very impressive, and i think maia is a tough fight for anyone and the kid beat him on 11 days notice, and just the way he has destroyed every1 else is impressive, his skills on paper are really good, hell i think he could beat gustaf

Gustaf is tall and thats pretty much it, i see potential in him but he has a looong way to go, weak wrestling, very overrated striking, doesnt know how to use his size that well, and nothing special on the ground...average at best, while weidman seems like a bjj prodigy

I have more faith in phil davis than gustaf
