It's styles, GSP has an incredibile double leg shoot, Anderson WOULD NEVER DEFEND THIS. Is he a better wrestler than Koscheck? No wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy. GSP wouldn't even stand with Anderson, no chance.

Tell me, what do you think happens when GSP shoots straight away? Marquardt and Lutter had him down, GSP DEFINITELY CAN. No question in my mind at all.. You think that Anderson defends it?

I bet the bookies will have GSP favourite in this fight - if they don't, I'll be putting a fair smoosh on GSP.

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..

What are you, retarded? Brock would destroy BJ, gsp, and silva easily.He has over 100 pound weight advantage and massive strength advantage over silva and even more so over the other 2.You probably hate brock because he was in wwe; get over it.The man is a MMA fighter now and a damn good one.

Not retarded. In BJJ, small good guys can beat big good guys. Watch Marcelo Garcia beat a load of big guys at ADCC 07 Openweight division. Consider that those heavyweights are actually World Class BJJ Practitioners.

BJ Penn is World Class, Brock Lesnars compared is non-existent. So no, he isn't retarded, it is possible for BJ to submit Brock. I DO realise this is MMA, therefore punches are involved and it's a different game. Thinking that BJ could sub Brock is not retarded though.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not necessarily predicting BJ to sub Brock, but if he were to get a foot, he probably would.

GSP and Silva. I look at this fight not just as two of the best fighters we will ever see in our time, but as two of the hardest workers we will ever see. Silva will spend hour after hour trying to figure out GSPs weaknesses. GSP will have to figure out how to avoid those knees while in a clinch or while shooting. Both men are amazing at their trade. Both could win. IMO, GSP studies and works hard enough to find the way to beat Silva. GSP instantly locks himself as a UFC HOFer.

The margin for error is too great for any of the two. I have never seen a fighter who capitalizes with such precision. As an instructor told me he's like in the "Matrix where he sees everything in slow motion and knows what's coming before it even lands." Irvin is a great example. Don't know if you guys noticed this, but Anderson is a south paw, but he was in a different stance with his left leg forward blocking the low kick and he knocked him out with his off hand. Mind you a fighter who use to fight at 225. Anderson takes it 8 out of 10 matches. The ONLY chance for them is on the ground.
Good observation, It seems so obvious but I did'nt notice this until you pointed it out.

BJ is a great fighter, but i've said for a while that he can not beat good wrestlers with great striking, he does'nt have the take down ability. BJ has a good chin and natural power but well schooled experienced strikers would tool him standing. As Anderson is alot bigger I can't see BJ taking him down and Anderson would kill him standing. RD 1 KO for Anderson.

As for GSP Anderson it would be a great match up. In almost all of GSP's recent fights this is what has happened. The other guy has come out aggressive throwing combo's early and GSP has gone for an instant double leg and got the takedown. Anderson will not come out aggressive, he will sit back throwing the occasional jab / right cross and wait for GSP to make a mistake. If GSP starts to strike with Silva he will get KO'd, if he looks for a shot from the outside he will eat a knee to the jaw. I honestly see Silva finishing GSP in the first round, however if GSP can take Silva down and do some damage perhaps he can hurt him enough to neutralise him and ride out the decision. GSP will not finish Anderson under any circumstances.

BJ didnt get beat that bad by machida; it could have easily been called a draw. Rich Franklin got killed by machida; quickly too. If franklin deserves to fight anderson 2wice, then bj should get a chance at him. I wonder what white's actual reasoning is???

If GSP can take Koscheck and Hughes down so easily I doubt Silva is much harder.

My prediction is that GSP takes Silva down almost instanly, G&Ps him a bit and eventually subs him. My money is on GSP on that fight basically, but if Silva catches GSP when he goes for that take down it could be the end of the fight too.
GSP's stand up is pretty solid but I think he is smart enough to not try trading with Silva at all. It'll be very similiar with second GSP vs. Serra fight, except Silva doesn't have as good ground game (specially sub defense) as Serra has.
nicely stated

Left cross. He's a southpaw.
