The thing about packing on muscle is you can also lose it if desired.

I swear the administrators on this site have downs.

Middelweight 5 Round Championship fight!

Silva can not cut 50 pounds before a fight. He would cut 20 maybe 25 pounds if at all. I think it's even less!
The guy who fights at MW is not the same guy who can also fight at LHW. Nobody can cut that much!

GSP would be around 200 lbs by fight night! He would also cut 15 pounds.

There wouldn't be a size disadvantage for George here.

Why not both? A ww title fight with an immediate rematch for the mw belt. Really shake things up and make it exciting. It would also help mitigate the fact that GSP's first mw fight is against the best in the world (not exactly like Silva's first lhw fight).

If Silva says he can fight at ww weight I believe him. I don't like the man much but their are few people in the world as in tune with and as in control of their bodies. If anyone could ever get 3 belts it's him. (I hope not)

Why would Silva want to lose muscle people? Is he gonna stay at WW? You can't bounce between WW and LHW. You can't just drop a bunch of muscle to make WW and then snap your fingers and put it back on and be an effective MW or LHW.

Actually it wasn't even viable because, as Toxic has mentioned, it doesn't make any sense to lose muscle mass to fight one fight and then have to regain those muscles to get back up to his weight class.

Maybe it makes no sense. Maybe it can't be done. He thinks he can do it and I would love to see him try.

Y'all tell him he can't.

I simply mean it didn't add anything to his argument, and you're not going to get far blanket-attacking the staff here, either.

GSP vs Anderson

After what just happened if GSP can take Anderson's back the way Chael did I have to think GSP chokes him out.

Other opinions are welcome
