Nope never. I knew GSP would wrestle Diaz. I'm not a Diaz fan, but I defend him when people say he's garbage.

But thank you, come again

If this fight does happen it's an easy win for Silva. Nick stuffed quite a few of GSP's takedowns tonight, I have no doubt Silva would stuff them without too much problem, not only with his underrated TDD but also his big size/strength advantage.

It would be a slaughter on the feet in a round or two. I have no interest in this fight for that reason, GSP doesn't stand a chance (well, anything can happen in MMA, but you get what I'm saying).

GSP was only stuffed on his half assed takedowns against Nick. There was no urgency for him at any time in this fight.

I would bet on Anderson but wouldn't be surprised if GSP could grind it out for a win.

Silva needs to fight up if he wants a superfight and stop trying to get small guys to fight him. I'm not even sure he wins his next fight.

And what the heck does silva get if he beats GSP anyway? Everyone expects the good big fighter to beat the good small fighter. It's really stupid for silva fans to even want that fight. He could throw his entire legacy down the drain.
Gee I wonder what a guy who makes tons of money off of pay per view buys would get from fighting the biggest draw in the sport.

He's not a huge middleweight at all....he can probably make welterweight.

Harhar at everyone jumping on the Silva-beats-GSP wagon now. This fight has always been a mismatch, Anderson would hurt him.

This "Silva TDD sucks" Myth comes after the 1st Chael Sonnen fight.

But hey, Chael's wrestling is at olympic level and he generally power through his opponent to get his double leg takedown while eating punches going in. This is a totally different Takedown from GSP's who uses timed takedown against opponent.

GSP version of (MMA) wrestling work well even against accomplished collegiate wrestler such as Fitch and Koscheck and probably against anyone in the WW division. But against Silva? It would be crazy. GSP has good timing. But Silva timing is at another level. He will probably KO GSP when he try to shoot for the TD.

Not to mention, Silva also manages to stuffed some of Chael's TD in their second fight.

And yes, this is coming from a GSP Fan.

I've said this from the very beginning. GSP will have to fight the perfect fight. He stands a better chance at 170, at 185 highly unlikely and at 205 thereotically speaking if he could make it the odds would be very very slim.

I truly believe Anderson Silva is at his full power at 205 although he loses a little bit of speed, but it's irrelevant because he's still a lot faster than the regular 205ers. His striking is so much more potent. He's hurt people in that division that normally withstand a ton of punishment.

One last thing, GSP always gets nicked in the face within the 25 minutes. One shot from Anderson would spell impending doom. I swear he fights like a spider. Everytime his opponents get hurt even the slightest bit or placed in a compromising position they start frantically and desperately fighting out of it. (Spinning back fists anyone...lolz!) Analogy...a bug stuck in the web trying to get out. The more it struggles the more it becomes entangled. There's no escaping.

I agree and it has been common knowledge since there were rumors of the fight.

I have said it before...out of any champ vs. champ fight the UFC can make....ANderson/GSP is the most lopsided fight there is.

Diaz stuffed 3 or 4 TDs at the end. What do we think Silva would do? Stuff any and all. If GSP did manage to get him down, Anderson would easily tie him up and any decent ref would stand them up. That is if GSP even made it past a jab KO or a knee that probably drops him in teh first.

GSP doesn't want that fight. He knows this. GSP would stand no chance in this fight. None.

Yea this he is bigger crap needs to stop. 185, a weight he makes with ease is close to 170 than 205. ANderson would be willing to go to 178, 7 lbs below his weight. Could GSP make 163? Could Bones make 198? I doubt it. People have no common sense. Carlos Condit is just as tall as Anderson and he competes at 170. Anderson has what? A 2 inch reach advantage?

People that talk about their size are just GSP fans that are afraid of that fight. They have nothing to grasp other than that excuse.

Actually it comes from much earlier then that from his fights with Lutter, Marquardt and Henderson. Sonnen just helped prove it to some extent. That all said in the Sonnen rematch fight Anderson showed pretty good tdd for the first time in his career although most of it was just using balance against the cage to stay standing.

I do think that Anderson would beat GSP because of far superior striking(GSP only really has a good jab and superman punch) but GSP could make it interesting. GSP isn't as strong as Sonnen but his takedowns are more technical and he can set them up better with his striking. GSP also has the best top control in MMA so he could grind out the 3 rounds needed for a decision win.

More then likely Silva lands something that stuns GSP and then takes advantage of it but GSP still could make that fight interesting imo. How Silva does against Wideman will help determine GSP's chances.

Still kind of hoping to see this fight. If Silva gets past Wideman and GSP past Hendricks this fight would make pretty good sense. I highly doubt we will see Silva fight Jones and this is one of the next best options.

GSP stands no chance it would be an absolute thrashing.

Anderson Vs Jones is the only real Superfight.
Franklin, Lutter, Marquardt, Hendo, Cote, Sonnen, Belfort

What do all of those people have in common?

They all took Silva down. Not a myth.
