GSP has been a beast of a WW for a long time. He isnt the tallest so that is how he makes WW.

Silva is too big for him IMO. Im much more interested in seeing him fight Diaz/Hendricks. In fact, Diaz vs Hendricks would be an excellent No 1 contender fight.

GSP could make LW easy imo, he would just need to lose the excess of muscle.

McCall, Faber, Aldo, Nate, Nick, Lyoto, TBD, Hunt

I would like to point out to those who think GSP is a huge WW that Ben Henderson here has a similar build to GSP. Then I would point out GSP is only a single inch taller. In other words GSP is not much bigger than a big LW and that is with his frame filled. That is kinda the point I keep trying to make about the Silva fight and why its a bad idea, GSP is much closer to Bendo in size than to Anderson.

No he's not at all. Henderson has massive legs don't get me wrong, but his upper body is skinny and has nothing on Gsp's upper body.

Diaz..Edgar.. Cormier.. Cain.. Mir.. Overeem.. Jon Jones

Really he is not small at all, that is an illusion based on two things, #1 his massive legs and #2 the fact that his shoulders are not as broad as GSP. Bendo is a big thick muscular guy.

He isn't close to the size of Gsp, Henderson is ripped up and dark skinned so he looks a lot bigger than he actually is.

Diaz..Edgar.. Cormier.. Cain.. Mir.. Overeem.. Jon Jones

IMO GSP looked the same as he always does. His gameplan was annoying as always. He still lacks the ability to finish. Well I shouldn't say he lacks the ability he just never shows any interest in ever pushing for a finish. Since the Serra fight he is too scared to take any risk, ever. I respect the hell out of him as a man but I can't root for him as a fighter.

I thought he was looking for the finish but condit was tough as nails. No doubt GSP would have finished a lesser fighter in this fight.

His game plan was spot on and Condit made it very difficult for him.
