Which weight class would you like to see it in?

Personally I would like to see it as a welterweight bout, or even a light weight if anderson can cut that much. The reason being is because it would dehydrate silva giving GSP a fair shot at the match.
LOL, ya put one guy at a disavantage because the other guy totally isnt almost as big. middleweight, andy cuts from 205 +, GSP is going into fights 190 or so, why the heck not?

special thanks to
Matt Hughes
Rashad Evans
Shane Carwin
Anderson Silva
and of course Gray Maynard

NPFFL: JDS, Bisping, Rampage, Kampmann

I would say MW. Like Silva moved to LHW, GSP should move to MW. GSP cuts to make 170 from 190 or so anyway, so he should have no problem fighting at 185 either. You've got guys in the HW division weighing 230 fighting the likes of 250-265 beasts, if you think it's unfair for GSP to be fighting against Silva because of a slight weight advantage you better throw in that the HW division needs a superheavyweight division otherwise you're full of crap. On top of that, it's not like Silva would use that weight advantage to control GSP on the ground, or on the cage, Silva is a striker lol

If Silva can defend his belt against Sonnen and Vitor make the fight at MW so GSP can go for the second belt, if he can't defend his belt pre-GSP have him drop down to WW. No catchweight, I want 5 round fight so one of the belts has to be on the line.

it wont happen, but it should be at a catchweight. unfotunately that might make it so silva tries out some more dancing moves so that gsp cant take him down. on the bright side, its been a while since gsp break danced so that dance competito-i mean fight could be exciting.

What the two fighters have to say:

Anderson Silva:

"I'd like to test myself and I always love to take on new challenges," Silva said in the interview. "It's not that I want to go fight Georges St. Pierre for his title. There's no doubt in my mind that he's the reigning champion, the absolute champion, in that weight category. But I just want to test myself and see how I'd do at that weight."



WW if were to happen, never will - Dana White gets to preserve his golden boy - this superfight would be happening in the next few months if Dana White doesn't spew garbage like "Anderson Silva doesn't deserve GSP."

Middleweight. I don't want to see some anorexic Anderson Silva fighting a fully energized GSP. GSP said he's up to 190 pounds now before fight night - Let him put on 5-10 more pounds of muscle and call it a fight.

I just think the fight loses all interest when Anderson dips below 185. I'm not interested in seeing "skinny Anderson" or "dehydrated Anderson." I want to see Anderson in all his glory fighting GSP in all of his.
