GSP as a Middleweight. . .
. . .how good would he be?
In my opinion, he'd be a "good" middleweight, but he'd fall short of being an "elite" middleweight.
The reason i bring this up is because of the "GSP vs Silva" and "best p4p" threads. Well, to me its extremely difficult to consider someone best p4p when they havent fought above their weight.
I know GSP has great wrestling, which is phenomenal considering he had no background in wrestling prior to mma, he's a blackbelt in bjj, though we dont really see much of what he can do on the ground.
The problem, in my opinion, lies with his striking. I believe his kicks are his best weapon. But, his head movement is his biggest pitfall.
What are your thoughts?
