He used to fight at 170, but he had a much slimmer build at that point in his career.

I think if this fight happens Anderson wins pretty decisively. Matt Serra was able to get a quick TKO of GSP so we know he doesn't have a granite chin, not saying its glass but Anderson has rocked guys with a reputation of a granite chin which GSP doesn't have. Even if GSP gets it to the ground Anderson has good defensive BJJ. And also every sec that fight is standing GSP is at a serious risk of getting KOed.

The size difference won't be so much. GSP said he'd add on 10 lbs of muscle if he had to fight Silva and the reach is closer than what people think: 77.5" for Silva vs. 76" for GSP. I still think Silva would win but IMO GSP has the right style to beat him.

x2 -- I just don't see GSP being able to pull a win over Silva.

GSP's reach has been listed as low as 74 though so i'm unsure of the reach issue. Either way Anderson doesn't need a reach advantage to pick someone apart, and even if GSP makes himself closer to Anderson's weight he's still 4 inchs shorter.

I can't see GSP going up a divison and beating Anderson. He still has some good contenders in his class anyways. Alves should be his main worry. We already seen what happened to BJ why try it out again?

Same argument can be made for Silva's reach being listed as low as 75.5" against Leben (his height was then 5'11" according to the TOT ).

The TOT's reach info is often put into question because it varies from fight to fight but GSP's reach has been listed as 76" most of the time (and in his most recent fights). Silva is tall and has longer arms but GSP is a lot broader than him.

True, but that's how this fight would go down IMO: either Silva uses his striking to keep the distance, pick GSP apart and jab him to death, or GSP can use his wrestling to take Silva down, GnP him, pass his guard and get a stoppage or pull a decision.

GSP has been listed all over the place ranging from 74-78 thats a huge gap. Either way like i said i don't think reach is a factor. But here is a link to some pics of GSPs reach being all over.

I know this TOT reach info is just ridiculous.
