BJ vs Brock. I can actually see BJ scrambling and choking Brock out or putting him in a toe, ankle lock. Reminiscent of the David vs Goliath match ups in the golden days where it was skills vs size.

All the other fights have probably been mentioned already.

LOL!... Bobby old boy, when will it stop. The two gents in that pic do not look the same size. Mousasis' arm looks considerably bigger than GSPs. As does his nose. GSPs ear may be bigger though!! Maybe you have a point...

Sillyness aside ( if that's ever possible ) GSP has never been 205 in his life I bet!

Damn first look at that photo gsp and gegard look similar but you can see gegard is hunched/slouched over where as gsp is postured up lungs full of air. I agree the silva vs gsp match-up will be just around the corner i know gsp is only 5"10 but he could beef up and cut to 185 no problem he would be solid.

On a side note Gegard looks like a real wuss with that hate on

My MMA Entourage:
Vitor Belfort
Anderson Silva
BJ Penn
Nick Diaz
Jose Aldo

GSP is already up to around 195, that wouldn't be a huge MW but he would definitely fit right in.

silva would destroy gsp im sorry to break it to you people, he would be a terrible match up for him.. taller with several inches of reach on him and 10x better striking, he'd murder him on the feet gsp's only hope would be to get him on the ground and hold him there, someone who consistently fights people much bigger than gsp not to mention is a black belt in BJJ... no.. terrible fight

Such posts show again, how much you guys are affected by those weight divisions. Yes they are made for a reason.. I know,but that doesn't change the fact that many fighters could fight in a different devision as they do now. GSP became one of those guys. He walks around close to 195-200 lbs and should already be fighting at MW in my mind. Anderson has a great physic and can bulk and drop a lot of weight, but that doesn't change the fact, that if he defends his belt at MW that he fights at around 200lbs. The same weight GSP would be fighting if he would challenge Silva. The wight would not be a factor in this fight!!!

And for the matchup, there is no better fighter out there right now then GSP who has the absolut perfect strenghts to beat this wonder Striker. Belfort for example was a great matchup for Anderson, because he would strike with him. But guys like GSP, Chael Sonnen and Hendo have the World class MMA Wrestling to bring Anderson in serious trouble! But GSP is so well rounded, that he even could survive for a bit in a strking match until he would take him down and be right in his element. And GSP's BJJ defense is nowhere near bad, I doupt Anderson would sub him from his back. The guard is the most difficult position to sub somebody today in MMA and thats where Anderson would spend most of the time!

There is no better fighter out there, who has the skills and style to take the belt away from Anderson. And GSP knows that! He is just waiting for the perfect time and the right place to challenge him. I truly believe he will and it should be his goal to that.

Does anyone else find it funny that in the picture of Mousasi and GSP at the Strikeforce event, if you look closely to the VIP tag on St. Pierre it actually says "VIP GSP" on it?

It actually just says "VIP", wheras Mousasi's says "Mousasi". Guess he was brought as a guest.
