Did Anderson Silva lose? Never seen anyone dropped off the p4p list for winning. Guess fedor's legendary comeback wins were no grounds for him being the best back in the days. I can count 4 fedor fights where he got his ass kicked but won.

I love GSP, but I don't think he has the size/strength to impose his will on Silva as effectively as Sonnen. It's probably the one fight I'd most like to see though. I also don't think GSP has the chin to withstand Silva either.

WE BOTH KNOW CHAEL SONNEN CAN OUT WRESTLE GSP ANYDAY OF THE WEEK.
Who knows? Chael says GSP was the greatest athlete he'd ever come across in the MMA. GSP already out wrestled an NCAA DI champion.

Besides, takedowns and takedown defense are completely different disciplines. Silva wasn't able to stop a drained Travis Lutter.

Until I see someone out wrestle GSP I dont buy it, they also said that about koscheck too and look what happened to him. I have no hate for AS, I just find it amusing that so many people in this forum seem to find so many excuses for andersson and penn. Lets face it GSP is 10 times the athlete sonnen while ever be, that is all Im saying.

Cheal is a D1 and USA Olympic calibre wrestler. I don't know much but Typically Americans wrestler are better than Canadian. I'm pretty sure if Cheal was good enough for team usa he could out wrestle GSP.

I am very glad Anderson won that fight tonight.. but uh I am not impressed with his performance, and I look forward to a GSP fight in the near future.

He lost to Hughes once, i'm not saying Chael will beat GSP but he will out wrestling him.He is a two time University National Champion in Greco Roman wrestling and a United States Olympic Team alternate. Plus his size and experience kills it. None of those guys u listed can out wrestle Cheal.

I've said for a long time, and you can use the search button to verify, that the person who beats Anderson will be the person who holds him down. And I think that GSP is a lot more capable on the ground than Chael...
