He is intelligent and diplomatic enough to be management material in this business and continue his career on that side of the business.

IMO he will put in another 2, maybe 3 fights and then call it quits.
Ya might be right. He's actually 30/31 already. Still remember when he blazed onto the scene.

If he had a better command of the English language without the thick accent there's no doubt he would become a bonafide movie star in the footsteps of Van Damme, Cung Le, Randy Couture, and Rampage even. Heck the Hollywood studios will still probably book em.

We'll probably know by the end of the year. The stars have aligned. The ball is on GSP's court even though they said they're willing to fight "if" Anderson comes down to 170...haha. Maybe with the Mike Dolce diet it could work if he started now...but that might jack up his chances against fighting the LHW holder down the line...and that's the fight I really want to see.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

Despite the size difference, GSP has the certain skills to beat Silva in a 5 round fight. He could have to fight the perfect fight but I think it could be done.

He would have to be relentless with takedowns. I am a huge GSP fan and will root for him, but if he can't go in there like Sonnen in their first fight, Anderson will take it.
