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.
There is so much more to someone's body composition than height and weight.

I guarantee if you put these two next to each other, the difference would be very noticable.

You're right 170lbs is closer to 185lbs than 205lbs is... but what is your point? Anderson still cuts to 205... and GSP walks at ~190

GSP fought Sean Sherk, BJ Penn, Matt Serra. Hell the Penn fights were some of his biggest in his career. Those are all 155ers. So what is the problem here...GSP won't enjoy a size advantage so it is s problem?

I'm not saying Anderson doesn't have a distinct size advantage any time you do one of these fights SOMEONE has to be the undersized guy. But Anderson is a striker, what is he going to do with his size advantage? He holds like a 2 inch reach advantage. Size will have little to do with Anderson matrix KOing him in teh first.

Anderson is willing to cut to 178. GSP and Bones couldn't cut 7 lbs below their weight. That is the proof right there. Bones wouldn't do a true catchweight if he fought Anderson. Yes Anderson is bigger...but if he can get down to 178 for that fight....why is it a big deal? Hendo is smaller than anyone at 205....him vs. Bones would look hilarious. Yet he still stands in there and knocks fools out.

Let's be honest here... the takedowns Diaz stuffed were some of the most half assed we've ever seen from GSP. People using this as some sort of 'crutch' for a Silva victory are reaching in that regard.

That said, yes, I agree. The large MW champion who often competes at LHW defeats the average sized WW champion. Kudos to him.

It would be the most lopsided champ vs. champ fight they could make.

Bones wouldn't get creamed like that at HW I bet. Anderson't may lay under Jones and hold on for a while, but he wouldn't get destroyed like that. Bendo wouldn't get finished by GSP. Aldo may beat Bendo if they fought. Barao may beat Aldo if they fought. Mighty Mouse would probably make it 5 rounds vs. a dangerous guy like Barao...he already gave Cruz a decent fight.

GSP would get curb stopped by Anderson. After being toyed with for a round or so.

Making excuses already, mate?

Silva is by far a superior fighter than GSP. The latter is a good all-round - albeit boring - fighter, that's it. Silva is a monster and a spectacular one at that. Simply put, Silva is in another league.

This fight wouldn't even last 3 minutes before GSP got GTFO. I know why GSP has been scared now.

BTW Hendricks and Silva both weigh around 210lbs or so when not training according to Mike Dolce. So GSP is about to fight a Huge man anyways.

Agree. It is sort of why I don't want to even see that fight. At the end of the day it is a lose lose, especially with rabid GSP fans.

Silva is in a different league.

No, 'mate'. I'm not making excuses. I've always believed Anderson would beat GSP. And it isn't because he's the superior fighter. If we're talking all around, complete package, GSP is better at more things than Silva. GSP is a better all around mixed martial artist. But Silva is by far the better striker, and I believe his TDD is good enough to negate at least a few of GSP's takedowns, which is all Silva would need to land something.

People who claim size makes no difference are also kidding themselves. It isn't like we're stacking GSP up against Ed Herman. We're talking about a larger Anderson Silva, who just so happens to be the world's greatest fighter in addition to someone who routinely competes at 205. You take the world's greatest fighter, give him a size advantage, and people think that makes no difference? As I said - delusion.

But I'm not going any further with this discussion. It always leads nowhere. Yes, Silva would likely beat GSP via superior striking. What else is there to say? Frankly, I'd rather see Jones vs. Silva and then listen to the Silva fanboys cry about 'size difference'

Would be little crying. Silva fans don't act like GSP fans do.

At least Anderson would fight Bones at 205 let alone cut even a little weight. Don't worry old man Anderson will give you all a superfight at the end of this year vs Bones. GSP can stay in his comfort zone of doggystyling opponents at 170.

Where are these 'rabid' GSP fans? I see a few posters defending GSP's style, but most of them readily admit that it might not be exciting for everyone. And even diehard fans of St. Pierre - like myself - are fine with admitting that Anderson would likely TKO him in impressive fashion, as Silva often does. To claim that Anderson is in a different league as though it somehow cheapens GSP's legacy is that 'Silva fan charm' I often refer to. Little jabs here and there, something GSP fans don't tend to do.

I'm not so easily riled by the fact that some forum goers don't care for GSP's style. To each their own. At the end of the day, arenas sell out to see and cheer this man, his PPV buy rates are the highest in the organization, he's shattering UFC records, and he's dominated nearly 275 minutes of fighting. Anyone who thinks that his legacy or legitimacy is in doubt because of a few naysayers over the internet needs his head checked.

I'll defend him, but I'd never be hurt by your comments, and it doesn't seem as though most here are. Frankly, I think the entire 'GSP fans are crazy' line is a bit overstated.
