We're not going to see GSP vs Silva because he won't get passed the Prodigy.

I think BJ could give Silva a lot of problems at a catch-weight, strange statement from Dana IMO.

I hate reading it, but Dana definitely is all about the money now and who can blame him? Silva would **** both GSP and BJ though and it's not because I had a dream where I was friends with him last night. (SOOOOOO SADDDD )

GSP vs Silva would be a must watch kind of fight, but I don't think GSP would have much of a chance. Anderson's ability to keep you at the end of his punches and kicks, or pull you into the MT clinch if you get too close, would probably be too much for GSP. Regardless though, that would be one hell of a fight, and worth the PPV price.

Don't hate the nitpicker but technically, GSP's never armbarred Matt.. he put him in a kimura / keylock. An armbar is when the arm is stretched out straight like a bar and the pressure is on the elbow (which is what Matt did), the kimura is when the elbow is bent and the pressure is on the shoulder (which is what GSP did). Yah I know sherdog says armbar, they got it wrong.

Sorry bro, but you got it wrong.

GSP started off with the kimura, then transitioned into an armbar as soon as Hughes tried to escape, rewatch the fight.

This is a kimura:

Thank you! I was just trying to type a rebuttal to that when my internet decided to turn itself off. Its a slick trans too.. This is why I say GSP could take Silva. His jitz is great, now especially being a certified black belt, and it's already been said he out wrestles guys way bigger than him.

I would LOVE to see GSP/Silva as I think both men would have chances to win and it would be super competitive but the catch weight confuses me. Silva already cuts from over 205 so could he get lower than 185?

While I am excited to see GSP/Penn I wouldnt really care too much to see Penn/Silva so whether that statement is true or not I am ok with it.
