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.


I don't get why people think Anderson is so big just because he's great enough to beat LHWs. He doesn't really cut to 205. He's around 200lbs when he's in shape, but he doesn't stay in shape walking around unlike GSP. People act like because he gets to 220 he's actually that big...it's just fat weight. It's like Roberto Duran ballooning to 190 or so between fights because the dude liked to party. He starts his actual water weight cut at 200lbs or less. For the Demian Maia fight he was on record saying he started his cut at about 194.

And I don't see how GSP is an average sized WW....this dude is the same size as Nate Marquardt who for a long time was a successful, and considered a large MW. He also has an above average reach for his height.


It's like saying Dan Henderson is so huge because he fought and knocked out Fedor.


This dude started his career and fought into his mid 20s at 168lbs....which is lighter than even the current WW division.


He fought Okami in Hawaii at 175 pounds a few fights before fighting in the UFC's MW division. This is while he was into his 30s and pretty much in his physical prime.


The only reason I could see for him not being able to make WW anymore is because he's 37.

IMO, and what transpired from last night, the area where Silva would toy with GSP would be the clinch.

I don't know whether or not GSP can take silva down, I believe he can, chael could, basically at will and even in their 2nd fight. I still believe TDD is Silva's achille's heel, but he's so good on his feet that it's bound to be a huge risk to try and shoot.

right now, I see silva finishing GSP with knees from the clinch, possibly in the 1st

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'
Wait, Silva is the best fighter in the world but GSP is a better martial artists?

Does not compute the logic of that statement... ERROR!!!

But I agree Jones vs Silva would be a much more spectacular and perhaps even fight (not because of size but because of talent/skill).

GSP is good, in fact, very very good - although boring - but like I said Silva is in another league.

This is just how it works. The first time Sonnen faced Silva, these boards were flooded with people who had 'no doubts' that St. Pierre would crush Silva. Now, because GSP has had what some deem a 'poor' performance, they've no doubts that Silva would walk through GSP. Welcome to the pendulum that is MMA fandom.

The fact is styles DO make fights. I don't think either Nick or GSP had a particularly bad fight. They both had styles which made each other look pretty lackluster. GSP came out with the win because he's more well rounded. That is all.

Not sure who you are referring to but I will swiftly subtract myself from these generalizations. I am no Diaz fan although surprisingly I would have much rather he won last night (despite my historical support and respect for GSP) because GSP is sorry to say, rather boring me out of my mind recently.

I have always thought Anderson to be the best fighter I have ever seen and will continue to think so until proven wrong (perhaps Jones might do that? I don't know).

But having the Silva vs GSP at a catch weight for instance would in my opinion annihilate the whole size matter, excuse.

Eh, catch weights. Silva could show up to the weigh ins 178lbs and be as heavy as 220lbs on fight night. Catch weights don't necessarily mean anything. We all know how much these fighters bulk up immediately after they step off the scale.

The only way I'd accept that size difference was not an issue would be if Silva stepped on a scale immediately before stepping into the cage.
