They would have to do it at catchweight to give GSP any chance of winning which is absurd since he can make weight. GSP can't finish Silva so basically he would have to go 5 full rounds being aggressive without getting caught to win. Not going to happen. He will eat a knee at some point shooting in or get his head taken off trying to engage to setup the shot. There is a big difference between controlling a fighter at 170 and a guy who can make 205 also GSP couldn't sub Kos he isn't subbing Silva.

Silva would descimate GSP on his feet, we've all seen how tentative GSP is standing these days. So he'll rely soley on his wrestling/GnP if he can get inside for the shot. Once he's on the ground Silva will go straight for the body triangle which will nullify any of GSP's advantage there.

Silva by TKO in the 3rd.

If Silva fights GSP the way he "fought" Leitas I think he will be very successful.

punishing leg and knee kicks in rounds 1-3 to nullify GSP's takedowns and picking him apart standing for a UD.

I don't get the part about Silva having poor td defence? From what I've observed its ******* top notch.

chuckstillrocks has a little shameless behaviour in the past
I See Silva as being bored and ready to just unleash whenever he gets challenged. GSP is great but I think silva would destroy him because he WOULD see him as a challenge. Like all fighters he will fall from the top but right now he made his last fight look like an instructor puting on a clinic of how not to take damage. He really wasn't trying at all in my opinion.

a.silva vs gsp

if this fight were to happen next year assuming both men get passed a few opponents first , who do you see taking it and why ?


....i voted gsp by split descision because i think hes more dominant in take downs than silva is in stand up ....i see gsp possibly outworking silva through wrestling enough to earn a split d . your thoughts ?

If GSP avoids the clinch he'd take it on a split decision, Silva would win one round.

I think GSP would win the sane way he did to Alves, Fitch and Penn... Using superior wrestling and controlling Silva on the ground. Like Hendo did the first round of their fight.

i think silva would have too much size along with skill on the ground for this to work... and it would have to get to the gound without gsp getting a KO (even tho he is great sytanding) i think ppl are looking at silva not finising his last 2 fights and forgetting what a beast he is

in the end i put this 60/40 for silva
