You are most likely wrong.

Some fighters put up to 45 pounds on before fight time (Tito Ortiz)

So if Anderson Silva went down well below his normal weight he could probably put on 20 pounds or so and be around 198 come fight time.

If they met at 180lbs I would predict Silva would be around 200-205 on fight night and GSP would be 190-195. I would assume GSP would do some extra weight lifting in camp and add a couple lbs of muscle. I think they would be 10-12 lbs difference on fight.

FYI, that video he sent was a joke, he was holding a weight in one of his hands.

I bet you that if Silva fought GSP at 178(this is the number that keeps popping up and makes sense) then the actual weight difference fight night would be negligible and that both fighters would come in weighing 190-195 fight night.

The weight difference doesn't even matter though, even if Silva has 10 lbs on him fight night it won't change the outcome of this fight. Silva doesn't win fights because of his size, wrestling etc and 10 lbs of water isn't going to be the difference in him being able to stuff GSP's takedowns.

The heigh factor may be an issue but GSP first has to fight Condit who is the same height as Silva. Honestly the taller height if anything will make it easier for GSP to take Silva down. On the ground Silva's lanky legs will make things tough but he will also be against one of the very best fighters for passing guard.

This fight is a catch 22 for Anderson.

If he KO's GSP with a knee as he shoots 1 minute into the fight, a portion of people will say Anderson was bigger and it somehow made a difference in the outcome.

I think the fight is fair as hell and the matchup is awesome. People say GSP is the best wrestler in all of MMA, so what shoulld 15-20lbs even matter. His opponents biggest weakness is wrestling.

We get to see Anderson vs. a wrestler who is well-rounded.

Anderson is in his late 30s and has to cut extra weight, which may drain him a bit. Those factors by themselves more than makes up for the disparity in size, in my opinion.

What a load of bollocks, so you find Antonio silvas recent ko of a 1legged travis Browne more impressive than GSP destroying koschecks face

Silva says he's not calling Gsp out.

Quote:
"I'm on vacation at the fight," Silva said. "I think we just come back at the end of next year. [I've got] my personal projects underway. Tomorrow I'm going to Los Angeles to check on the progress of my gym, we're riding there. I think it's time for me to [keep] my life in order, because this thing of always being worried and having work, I just leave my personal life aside. I have my projects, my personal plans and will keep them moving forward."

"I'm going to Los Angeles and then go to Canada for the fight of Saint Pierre, and then I'm already there to shoot a movie, a feature film that I'll participate and Lyoto. It's an action movie. [It's] not my character to up and challenge anyone. I think it will not happen. I think not, I'm sure (laughs)."

Silva better not be taking time off till next year, I cnt be bothered with the middleweight devision at a stand still.
