After Sonnen-Silva, it seems as GSP already beat Silva, doesn't it?
SOme said the blueprint to beating SIlva has been exposed.
Correction: the blueprint already existed imo. Dan Henderson showed us the path in the first rd against Silva. Too bad for him he couldn't continue after.
I have to admit, a lot of times, when i was watching Sonnen last night, it was like i was watching GSP: great takedowns, great control on the ground, excellent GnP. Many could argue Sonnen's GnP is better. Maybe they're right. But the resemblances between them are amazing when it comes to wrestling and the fight on the ground.
It all stops when it comes to the grappling part of fighting on the ground. GSP's grappling is 10 times better than Sonnen.
And if he fights Silva atm i think he could take it. Just by doing what Chael did last night. I don't think Silva could sub GSP from the bottom. For me that is out of the question.
A year ago thw weight issue could have been a problem, but right now even if Silva would be 10 lbs heavier by fight night, i still don't hink he could stop GSp's takedowns and ground control. GSP has superior strength and i yhink he would take a decision victory, like Chael should have.
Too bad the fight seems to be so far away atm.
