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.
This. Thank you sir for speaking the truth.

No reason not to do this at MW. Silva is going to be bigger than GSP no matter what weight you hold this at so no point in making him cut an absurd amount to get to 170. GSP has been working on getting bigger. A year ago he was walking around at 185-188, now he walks around at 190-193. I really thought that GSP was bulking up for Silva and they would announce that fight after he beat Hardy.

I'm a huge GSP fan but GSP says he wants to move up and that he wants to fight the best. If that is true, then there is no reason not to have this fight now, or soon at the least. Even if GSP wants to bulk up to walking around at 200, how long is that going to take when is already at 190? He has beaten everyone at WW, let's be serious there is nothing left there but rematches.

I honestly think Silva wins this fight most times, even a bulked up GSP is going to be at least 10-15 lbs smaller than Silva but cmon GSP, make this happen. Even though I think GSP will lose; the last few fights between both fighters have made me think it will be close enough that I want to see it.

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.
Well... you didn't say it, but your post indicates that Silva is so superior that GSP needs help to win. I don't know what would happen myself but I don't think Silva is superior at all.
As for the question.... I would like to see them at 178 with a 1 pound over being okay. Right in between their respective weight classes.

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."



GSP:

I remember he said before he needs at least a year of training if he were to move up to 185. He walks around at 190+ when he's not cutting for a fight. Get the f*** out of here GSP.


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."

I seriously want Koscheck to knock GSP the F out. To humble him again.
Koscheck Ko'ing GSP? Now that's funny!

I would think that the best thing administrativly is to place the bout at 1-2 lbs over the welterweight ceiling, that way neither title will be on the line and Anderson (the heavier of the two fighters) would be sufficiently weakened.

the UFC are allowed to make non title 5 round fights, so maybe this will be a first, it shouldnt be any lower than 180 though or else it wont be a fair fight IMO, lower than that and Anderson would be too weak to deal with the likes of GSP.

Here's my take on it.

GSP say's he not going to move up to 185 for a while, and if he were to fight at 185 against Anderson, he'd rather actually "Be" a 185 pounder and not have to cut back down to 170 to defend his title.

Silva on the other hand "Is willing" to cut all the way down to 170 to fight GSP. Hell, I say let it happen that way. I'm interested in seeing how Silva does fighting back down at 170 again.

That, ladies and gentlemen, is my two cents.

I say Welter weight. Makes more sense for it to be a catch wieght, but if Silva can beat GSP at GSP's own weight class then that sollidifies Silva as the PfP king for eternity. If he can go up and beat the champion at 205 that is good. but going down and beating someone who has dominated for so long there as well as his game plan s basically the one everyone thinks will beat silva... should be entertaining.

catchweight, for no excuses. If GSP ever wants to move up a class, that's a completely different matter in my opinion.

I'm pretty sure going up a weight class and dominating is more of a showcase of a fighters skill than going down and being the bigger and stronger guy and dominating, but nice try.
