The difference is that I don't think GSP would leave his arm out like that for Silva to lock in a triangle, or arm bar, or anything, even after a tiring five rounds. On the other hand though, Andy would take GSP on the feet and after the Chael fight I'm not sure Silva will ever allow himself to be dominated like that by another wrestler again. As another aside, I doubt they'll fight at MW, if anything I'd say they'll fight at catchweight.

I recall reading Anderson planned on being on his back in the fight, due to his rib condition. I doubt he will fight GSP with an injured rib, and I doubt he would plan on fighting off his back, as he did against Chael. He planned to be on his back, I see him standing with GSP and trying to assert his striking in a much more efficient manor....

Although GSP may just lay on him and not work for a finish....personally I would rather see GSP fight a Sheilds or Fitch again...

So I guess we plan on having a weekly GSP vs Anderson poll. It's not like this topic has been beaten to death or anything.

Again? Ok. I want to see the posts after sonnen vs silva 2 when Silva dominates him injury free stuffing takedowns like the Silva we know. Silva would have some trouble with gsp I feel but I still see Silva taking this, as hypothetical as it is right now.

How soon we forget, pre-fight, between fights at UFC 112, Rogan and the press was promoting and pushing for this fight. Seemingly inevitable. Then after Maia:

"Anderson Silva doesn't deserve (to beat hell out of) GSP"

The mega-fight was penciled in before Maia began....before Dana White went ape-$hit about the Silva v Maia. Lot of short memories here.

Shortly after, GSP safely got tucked in TUF and is recycling his biggest foe - Koscheck.
