Gsp looked Huge last night.
 
People who claim silva is to big for Gsp are insane :). Nah really tho, did anyone notice how much thicker Gsp looked last night?. He looked in fantastic shape, anyone think he's planning a move?.

I just posted about this in the Condit/GSP fight thread. His legs looked much thicker, particularly his thighs. His frame in general seemed much larger. I remember him saying some time ago that if we were to fight Anderson, he wanted time to get larger for it. He certainly has. This is the most likely I think the fight has ever been to happening.

I think I heard Rogan say that he has been doing alot of weight training, which Gsp doesn't normally do.

Ye i was thinking he looked big but when Rogan said he had been doing strength and conditioning (apparently for the first time) and mentioned his legs i couldn't stop noticing his legs. Like he's just been bulking up his legs and not much else. The opposite of a generic bodybuilder.

I wonder what he was walking around at before this fight.

my guess is 5-10 pounds bigger than normal after all the talks of a 178 pound catchweight fight with Anderson.

Looked pretty much exactly the same to me. I think this is a bit of a placebo affect to be honest. Rogan kept stating over and over how big he thought GSP looked and then everyone else "sees" it aswell. compare pics of the staredown and I doubt you'll see any difference.

Beat me to it. Yeah this. I was in a bar and I live in Canada, so I never heard a word Rogan said the entire fight, and I never once thought he looked bigger. He looked the way he always looked to me. Condit was bigger than GSP, never mind Silva.

GSP has pretty much been that size since the Fitch fight. The fact that Goldberg hadn't seen him in the Octagon in a year might have influenced him. But then what do I know... GSP could well have been bigger and I just didn't pick up on it.

I was thinking that he looked very small against the bigger fighter in Condit.
I don't think of GSP as a big WW by no means.
