I want to see Anderson Silva vs. GSP
 
I think it's only a matter of time before we see it. I say the fight happens within the next year and a half.

Soon, but possibily a catch weight. Silva has mentioned that he would go down in weight class rather than fighting in 205 as an insinuation that he feels GSP poses the biggest challenge. You know what though let GSP enjoy his hard earned victory and clean up a few more contenders namely Jon Fitch and possibly Alves or Sanchez if they make it to title contention. Then GSP will have officially mopped up the WW division if he hasn't already and so ends the "Rocky" story. In Rocky the main character wasn't half as arrogant. Perhaps it's time for Serra to reflect on everything. What a great finish by GSP!

It would make a great new years eve main event!

Only thing is, which title would be on the line, if any. and if no titles on the line, is it worth it making one of your champion loose a fight while he's champion?

GSP Vs Silva a big possibility, BJ vs Silva not so much
 
Props: The Sun

Quoteworthy:

“If GSP beats BJ then you’ll see Silva v GSP — possibly at a catch weight. But if Penn beats GSP there’s no way I’d let him move up to 185lbs, no way. He’ll f***ing fight, argue and cry about it but there’s no way – it ain’t gonna happen, I can tell you that right now – it ain’t gonna happen.”

UFC President Dana White is all about a superfight between welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre and middleweight champion Anderson Silva sometime in 2009. Of course, St. Pierre — who next fights lightweight champion BJ Penn at UFC 94 on January 31 — and Silva — who fights Patrick Cote next week — both more than likely need to win their next bouts for that to happen. Great idea and a colossal moneymaker. But here’s where it gets a little weird — White says he will not let Penn — a former welterweight champion who has competed against light heavyweights in the past — fight “The Spider” if he bests “Rush.” Penn has said numerous times that he would like to hold every belt in the UFC, but according to an emphatic White, it’s not going to happen. White is right in that Penn will more than likely raise a stink if he is not allowed to fight Silva … as he should be. It doesn’t make much sense, especially since Penn would have to vacate at least one title for it to happen. Hopefully, White will elaborate on the thought process in the near future.

Bj's weakest aspect is his takedowns, but then again, A. Silva's biggest weakness is his takedown defense.

silva would knock out BJ.Doesnt matter how good a chin he has, He's never been hit by anderson silva

fare enough

Yeah man, BJ thinks Lyoto whipped his ass when he moved up? Let him bang with Silva, he'll get eaten alive! BJ wants every belt in the UFC, thats laughable. BJ is one of the most talented fighters in the world. Ever. But he just keeps trying to get too big for his britches.

GSP vs Silva at a catch weight(180?) would be my most cherished super fight after Wand's and Chuck's clash. GSP would be very wise to take Anderson down and sub him with the quickness though. As much as I'd love to see them bang it out, Silva is too much for many guys bigger than him, let alone a guy naturally 15 lbs lighter. If it stays standing I think Silva walks it, no problem, KO. However, my gut wants to root for Georges just because the guy is absolutely the full package right now.

GSP via "hows a taste of your own medicine Matt?" armbar

bj vs brock lol i would pay to see that shit
