Not a big GSP fan I presume? Personally, I don't know that the reason GSP's not fighting Anderson Silva is because he's a coward (apparently you do).
I do however think that the size advantage Anderson would have would be significant. In the past, it's been reported that Anderson walks around at about 220. While it might actually be a little less than that, it's ceratinly not the 192 Rogan mentioned during the PPV. 192 is about what GSP walks around at. So when you're talking about a potential size difference of up to 30 pounds, that's something that has to be considered.
I think recent history has taught us that the great big fighter beats the great small fighter 9 out of 10 times, hence GSP's reluctance to fight A. Silva. Now if A. Silva's going to drop down to 170 then GSP's obviously game because if he's even able to get that low, that kind of cut has to hurt A. Silva's chances.
