sad thing is we still have to wait until gsp v kos, gsp v fitch, and gsp v shields/kampman before he will even potentially move up... thats 3 fights so about 2012 gsp might potentially fight at middleweight.... thats a long ways to go

That was all started from a hit to the back of GSP's head, remember.

After the Sonnen fight it was made pretty clear GSP would win. If GSP could pack on a solid 25 pounds of muscle and move up, he's got the fight in the bag.

25 pounds sounds like a lot, but when you are strictly a professional athelete I think it's definitely possible.

GSP won't get submitted like Sonnen.

GSP doesn't want to cut anymore than 20lbs before the fight, and since he's at 192 right now I can't see him wanting to gain anything more than ~10lbs before stepping into 185.

I'm not 100% Anderson Silva is the best of BJJ black belts. His guard and sub game looked a little suspect to me, i mean the triangle was only about the 2nd sub he got anywhere near with.
Plus the way GSP advances position i think he'd get to mount on Andy and finish the fight.

GSP would win but only because he would lay an pray, but Chael is better in my opinion he actually beats the shit out of his opponents, if he laid and prayed he would be champion today much respect to him.

Why are people still questioning this??
If Sonnen can put Silva down so easily and stay on top for 4 rounds then GSP easily can because no one can stop his take downs!
The fight last night has proved that GSP would easily take down Silva if they met as he has the best takedown in the UFC. He could easily just lay on top of Silva for 5 rounds and he wouldnt be able to do anything about it.
