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 would absolutely win this fight it would probably be like the hardy fight lots of gnp with a few sub attempts thrown in. just as long as silva doesnt bring his secret weapon (steven segal)to the fight gsp gots this fight

But a true champion, face to face with his darkest hour, will do whatever it takes to rise above. A man fights, and fights, and then fights some more. Because surrender is death, and death is for pussies- kenny powers

GSP via ground and pound stoppage or submission.

AS has a chance to KO GSP in the stand-up before he gets taken down, GSP is not as durable as Chael.

Who knows......

Lets see GSP finish his WW opponents before we see him take on Anderson. But after last nights fight, I think we all know that if GSP gets in, he will put Silva on his back. But will GSP be able to land that much GnP to keep Silva at bay? I'm not sure yet.

The idea that someone put Dan Hardy on the same level as Anderson Silva deserves automatic ban.

You're just a cook...

I doubt it will happen anytime soon. Anderson Silva went to the hospital after the five rounds of pounding, so he will need some time to recover. Besides, if you know the UFC, you will be pretty sure that Silva's next defense is atleast five months away.

First in line appears to be Vitor Belfort. Then Sonnen or Okami.

It could also be a rematch between Silva and Sonnen, following TUF 744.433.535. Then Belfort, then Okami.

GSP will fight Koscheck first AFTER TUF,(and if he wins) then Kampmann/Shields/Fitch.

So GSP vs Silva is pretty far away.

Fun trivia: In danish "kamp" means "match" or "fight". So Martin Kampmann really lives up to his name.

A lot of fighters visit the hospital after their fights if they take any significant damage. It's usually precautionary, I'm sure he went home the same night, and unless he has a broken facial bone or something he'll probably get the customary thirty day medical suspension and then be back in the fight.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

you took that the completely wrong way man. thats like saying how much oranges are like apples, what i mean is hardy-pure strker with little to no ground game
anderson-pure striker with a lil bit of a ground game(that traingle was pretty much a hail mary )what do you think a superior wrestler and fighter like gsp would do to anderson?? hed pretty much do what he did to hardy, put him on his arse and gnp him for five rounds

But a true champion, face to face with his darkest hour, will do whatever it takes to rise above. A man fights, and fights, and then fights some more. Because surrender is death, and death is for pussies- kenny powers

GSP does not have the knock out power to put andy anway. I`ll give this fight to Andy. No way anderson does not use this ass whooping from Chael as grounds to improve his takedown defense etc.

And yet he has the wrestling and submission defence to grind out a dominant decision victory.

I'd take it. And man, would I ever rub it in your face.
