Throw Silva in..

with GSP.. NOW! I want to see Silva try and clown around with GSP. I dare him. When silva sticks that big head and lips of his out, he's going to go down to the floor instantly. He won't have any option but to tap. Thx

I'm going to turn a blind eye to this post, seeing as it's your first and makes no sense whatsoever.

Welcome to the forums.

Thanks to limba for this AWESOME sig

Would the UFC Welterweight Title be on the line though?

Welcome to the forums.
It makes perfect sense (except for the tap out part, replace with TKO due to GnP) ... the only reason you disregard it is the "1 post" tag of the OP.

Anderson's style can only be countered by wrestling, as shown to small degrees by Hendo and Lutter as long as they chose to wrestle instead of strike. GSP has the best MMA wrestling in the world. Period.

Anderson has acted like a complete tool with his tantrum ... yes Maia didn't belong in there with him, but that doesn't excuse his behaviour. I echo the OP in the sentiment that they should give him GSP who has a good chance of smashing his ego right into the mat.

Heck GSP wants it, Anderson wants it, the fans want it, both of them are bored as **** in their current divisions. WHAT THE HELL IS DANA'S PROBLEM?

The time is now: GSP vs A. Silva

Let's be honest here, there's not too many high caliber opponents for these two guys out there. Let's have them fight each other. I was opposed to this idea until now. They are both in their prime. Let's do it now Dana before they get too old and use that as an excuse (the loser).

If GSP cant finish Hardy on the ground he aint finishing Silva...If anything was shown from that last fight is that Silva has awesome takedown defence.

Yeah against a dude who's idea of a takedown is bumbling in to reach, flopping around and grabbing for anything, then leaning back. Maia's takedowns suck, his standup is TERRIBLE ... this fight was destined to turn out the way it did. This one trick pony did not have what is needed to threaten silva.

Against the only real wrestler he fought (Hendo), Anderson got taken down and held there. With ease.

How long have you been watching either fighter let alone MMA. The guy above basically summed it up. It has been known for a long time that Maia's standup is horrible and his takedowns are weak, once he is actually on the ground though... he is really good. Maia was basically suicide bombing at Silva's legs... I dont know where he was taught that...but that is just plain ridiculous, you cant even compare GSPs takedowns to Maias.

Silva has been taken down by good wrestlers before and GSP is better then them, the problem is can GSP avoid submissions which he is very good at.

I think the time is not now. After last nights joke of a fight, making the Silva/St Pierre fight would be playing right into his hands. He does not deserve that fight at this point in time imo. Offer him a title fight with his buddy Machida, and when he refuses the fight...fine his ass or drop him.

Silva, as good as he is, and he IS damned good, does not have own, run, manage, or in any other way direct the business model of the UFC. He WORKS FOR the UFC. They are his EMPLOYER. THEY pay his bills and feed his family.

If he is not satisfied with his lot in life as the UFC's MW Champ...or what opponents they put in front of him, then I say he should resign, vacate his belt, pay his (probable) massive fines for breaking his contract with his EMPLOYER and go find some fights with Strikeforce facing their lists of UFC has beens.

He speaks a bunch about respect and humility but he has not shown it of late.

The thing is though, Silva was just as happy retiring soon but the UFC convinced him to stay for super fights and whatnot. They are wasting his fights left on his contract for people like Maia who dont even deserve to be in with him. Instead of giving him Maia who didnt even deserve a title fight vs anyone seeing how he got KTFO by Marquardt and only won once vs nobody top ranked.

You give Silva somebody from the LHW division. The problem that seems to happen with Silva is that unless its a top fighter, he doesnt look motivated to fight. All of his lackluster fights were against opponents who didnt deserve to have that chance to begin with.
