Erick Silva, how good is that "kid" and can be beat GSP ?

I was a bit surprised that he is 28 years old. I thought he was an upcomer like Jon Jones around age 23-25.

Erick has experience and should be around his peak then ?

How does Erick Silva match up to GSP in

- Standup
- Ground game
- Physique (stamina + strength)

My thoughts:

Standup: Ericks speed seems better than GSP while GSP seems to have more tools in the standup. Erick has powerful frequent kicks while I think GSP has better boxing. I score this category EVEN

Ground game: Ericks seems stronger than GSP in grappling, chokes etc while GSP has better takedown defence and takedowns (better balance). I score this category GSP

Physique: I think Erick Silva has the better pace throughout a long fight. I also think Erick has the better chin. I score this category for ERICK SILVA

Summary: I have Erick Silva vs George St Pierre a tie 1 - 1 - 1 in categories. What do you guys think about this possible future match up ?

I haven't seen much of Silva but his been to the 3rd round only 3 times and not once in the UFC, how can you possibly assume he has the better cardio of the two?

I can assume by looking at his pace and posture in fights. I watched some of his old fights before UFC as well on youtube. Assuming is easy, knowing is hard. Why do not you tell me how you meisure this matchup yourself ?

I think he's shown some great technique and killer instinct but that's about where it ends. It's far too early to make comparisons when his best win is over Brenneman.

Team Nogueira fighter, black belt Judoka, black belt Jiu Jitsu, very confident and very powerful striking, great fight instincts and always looking to finish opponent. Kid is trouble.

Typical Brazilian fighter you think, some are more successful than others but WW is wrestler heavy. This kid trains with the American wrestler in mind and it shows in his fights, Erick Silva is going to be a big problem for everyone in the division. He's like a young Shogun or Anderson that has put more emphasis on wrestling defense, he can do what Aldo and Silva do and IMO his hardest fight right now would be Nick Diaz.
