No he really wouldn't(apart from being a champ at MW) there is nothing that GSP has done to suggest he could beat LHW's and HW'S.

Injured rips or not.. It's a horrible matchup for him, both are!
I agree with you, both are/were bad matchups for Silva. I agree that Silva has bad TDD, just not as bad as the Sonnen fight made it look due to the ribs.

You must be quite a giant if I am a little boy. I can see why you value weight classes now. To defend the fact that you are a ginormous dinosaur.

He has!

He destroyed a BJ Penn who fought one of the best LHW's in the world to a close decision loss.

The way he tools 210lbs WW's like Fitch or Alves doesn't make you think he could do the same too guys who are even less skilled?

Take a look at the matchups only..

He would GnP Forrest and Franklin to a UD.. he would outstrike Bones Jones, because Bones Jones is not a very good striker, even through it looks like it.

He would outstrike Rashad Evans and keep it standing of course with his incredible Wrestling.

LiL Nog is no match either.

He would lose against Shogun (probably), Machida (definitely) cause very bad matchup for him stylistically..maybe even the worst

And he would outsrike Rampage Jackson!

It's easy actually just open your mind a little guy^^

lol that was so arrogant, biased and unprofessional, please no1 can determine who would win between the #1 and #2 P4P fighters in the world right now

this illusion of a great wrestler with sub defense can beat AS is simply that...an illusion, i dont know how many times i have to point out that sonnen tried to escape the triangle the correct way, if GSP got caught in that tirangle he would have done the same escape and would have still probably tapped

ppl are forgetting the huge difference in size and when two elite of the elite fighters are facing each other...yes...size matters, it will be very hard for GSP to keep AS down simply because AS has such a long body, not only that but GSP will also have a very tough time passing guard, AS can EASILY trap him in a body triangle and keep him there the whole round, GSP is too small for MW...he has the perfect build for WW, this fight is unfair to him

if GSP was a natural MW he would have a huge chance of winning and probably would win...though AS always has that KO chance

but still...GSP is a WW...and he would have a very tough time keeping some1 of AS size down and passing guard not to mention on the stand up

this isnt about power...hell GSP might even be stronger than AS at 185, the problem is simply the actual body size, the way AS is built is a nightmare for a short powerfull wrestler, sonnen was able to do what he did because he was not only one of the best wrestlers in MMA but he was also HUGE

these are 2 fighters who always know how to win, its like a different skill that they possess...no matter what kind of difficulty they encounter they find a way to win

to simply say with such confidence who would win is not only arrogant but stupid, if you take your personal opinions aside this fight is impossible to call

im a AS nuthugger but i think GSP could beat IF he actually can pass ASs guard and keep him down despite his size (something i really doubt) also for him to get close to set up a TD will be a very tough task with the difference in reach, add to the fact that GSP has never faced a fighter that moves the way AS does

there are so many questions in this fight that you simply cant make such a bold prediction

kenny, rashad, get off of GSPs nuts and actually analyse the fight

who do i think will win? i have no clue...all i know is GSP is in a disadvantage and if he pulls it off he is the greates fighter that has ever lived

PS: Rashad isnt really known for the best picks in fights

PSS: they didnt even do a proper breakdown, they probably went with the mentality ''sonnen almost won, GSP is sonnen + sub defense...omg GSP wins! we dont even need to see this fight''...their opinions count just as much as any other forum member here if thats how they are going to judge the fight...actually has even less value than a non biased view

They are both his training partners MMA Live is so bad except for Pat.

It is a benefit to not have to cut a lot but Silva is a weight cutting master and clearly has great cardio. GSP would still have to cut like 10 pounds also. He wasn't even tired at the end of the Sonnen fight what is GSP going to do that will wear him out more than that fight with busted ribs.

My favorite Kenny prediction is that his BJJ was going to be better than Penn's. He lasted about 10 seconds on the ground with him before getting subbed.

Matt Serra dropped him if Rampage touched him once with a punch his head would implode and GSP isn't taking Rampage down. The best at LHW are way too strong for him they would all tool him. Bones would have like 3 feet of reach on him it wouldn't matter how much better GSP is at striking he wouldn't be able to get inside without getting ragdolled to the ground and easily finished.
