If you could wave a magic wand and make Georges St. Pierre the same size as Lidell, it would be a fantastic fight. Rush is such a technically skilled and adaptable fighter he would present a real challenge to Lidell. But that won't happen - two weight classes is too much.
While I will not say one fighter is 100% going to beat any other fighter here are a few that would give Chuck the fight of his life.
Wenderlei Silva - (do you think Chuck would win vs Cro Cop either? I don't think so)
Shogun - I think Chuck would be hard pressed to beat him
Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira - If he dropped weight, it would be a good match.
Cro Cop - If he dropped weight, yikes.
As a dark horse:
Rampage - Not sure if he still has it or not. We will soon see if he can compete with all the top dogs.
I am not saying Chuck would lose to all these guys, all I am saying is that Chuck has lots of fights out there that could challenge him big time. Any of these fights I would LOVE to watch, as I am sure we all would.
I totally agree with what you said about GSP. But it will not happen b/c he is much better suited where he is, 170lbs.
