I have to agree that BJ didn't really get beat by machida at all. It could have gone either way or been considered a draw IMHO. I think Dana is smart though not to let them fight unless the public wants it so bad it is a huge draw. I'm honestly not even sure BJ is going to get past GSP.

If something is clear in my mind, it is that Penn will get manhandled by GSP.

Even though I have alot of faith in GSPs skills, Im pretty sure Anderson would school him.

Penn would get murdered by Anderson, GSP might be able to cause actual dammage to Silva.

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.
I agree that GSP has a shot against Silva if he uses wrestling. Look who gave Silva the most trouble recently, Henderson by taking him down and GNP. I hear GSP is pretty good at that. However, I think Silva is big enough and strong enough that GSP wouldn't finish him and he'd find a way to win.

I guaruntee Silva would be a solid favourite from the bookies, as he should be.

I don't think Penn would have a chance against Silva. I expect GSP to beat Penn even though skill wise they are pretty much even because GSP is naturally 10-20 pounds bigger. Silva would be another 15-20 pounds bigger than that, he'd beat Penn easily.

It'd be ridiculous BJ fighting Anderson, I know BJ's techically fought at LHW before (didn't he weigh in at 186 or something) were talking about a fighter who's body looked very comfortable at 205 and is a big 185er against someone who's natural fighting weight is probably around 160-165. BJ's one of my favourite fighters but this is a step too far.

GSP vs A. Silva

If GSP fights Anderson Silva, who do you think wins it?
I'm gonna have to go with GSP in an upset win. I say he takes Anderson Silva down and either outscores him or tko's him with ground and pound. His wrestling will be too much for Silva to handle imo. What do you guys think?

Its a really tough call. Silva would win the stand up for sure. But I could see your scenario happening to. Thing is Silva could pull of a submission on the ground as well, so I think I might slightly lean toward Silva. But I'll probably change my pick constantly until they fight (if they fight).

I see GSP take Silva down, work him on the ground and pulling off the decision victory.
