Sonnen did quite well standing with Silva so there's no reason to believe GSP can't have success. By the time this fight goes down though Anderson will be even more out of his prime and Georges will beat him.

Just watched Silva vs Lutter the other day and Anderson looks very easy to takedown imo. There's no way that Silva will be able to stop GSP's. I'd like to see a gif of Anderson actually sprawling to avoid a takedown tbh. Pierre will take the fight where he feels he has the best chance to win. It's probably not even gonna be a close fight if it happens.

No offense to the OP but this "super-fight" gets brought up over and over and I honestly don't think it will happen as soon as so many expect it to. GSP has already stated that he would need time to put on more size if he wants to move up and challenge Silva and that won't happen overnight.

Fact is GSP would need to basically move up 2 weight classes to fight Silva as Anderson can and has easily proven that fighting at LHW is not a problem at all. A catch-weight fight would not solve the differences in size/weight between the two.

It would be a great fight to be able to see as the differing skill-sets do seem like it could be an amazing fight to witness but I honestly don't think this fight willl happen as quickly as most want to see it.

Fact is also GSP walks around well above 190lbs, so your point is kind of moot there.

Less than a year ago Silva said he could make weight at 170. I don't know if he still can, it would definitely take out a lot of the gas in his tank. Nonetheless, if it happens, it should be for the belt, this fight should not be at a catchweight, I want 5 rounds and one guy holding up twp belts that have eluded many many fighters in the UFC.

GSP will Take Silva down the fight will either be a UD GSP or a T/KO from Silva.


Submission i just cant see happening and GSP once he has you down its pretty much 4 minutes of the round gone so i think Silva will need to make his time on the feet count big time.

Actually the fact is that GSP doesn't walk around "well above 190lbs" and has stated that he has just moved up to 193lbs at max and that was just recently. Plus he also stated he would want to move up to 200lbs+ before moving up and that once he got that big he wouldn't and couldn't move back down which he is not sure he wants to do now as he would then fight at MW and not drop back down.

Also I highly doubt Silva would drop to 170 to make this fight happen.

After contemplating about this fight I see three scenarios.

1.) GSP somehow grinds out a five rounder without getting hurt. That's 25 full minutes of dodging bullets like in the Matrix and as far I know Anderson Silva is "The Matrix."

2.) GSP studies his past tapes and realizes his sole weakness is submissions. So he takes Anderson down and leans back for a heel hook or ankle lock. He only has a split second to execute this manuever.

3.) Anderson Silva KOs GSP within the first two minutes.
Bell rings and Anderson glides to the middle while GSP cautiously approaches. GSP is looking to measure his distance with his left jab while Anderson does the same with his right jab. This goes on for the first 30 seconds til GSP lands an inside leg kick which Anderson ackowledges as the first blow dealt and he immediately goes in to counter as he always does instanteously. GSP is immediately back tracking (in his mind thinking circle or go for the takedown.) I've seen this scenario a countless number of times while the opponent is retracting from a strike Anderson moves in. A.) GSP backtracks and Anderson uses his length and reach to confuse GSP and lands a hook or LHK that momentarily stuns em even though it's blocked. Then he goes into his spider attack mode where "any opponent" for that matter is confused and paralyzed. Then BAM a right jab hits GSP further causing disorientation. GSP immediately goes into defense mode and goes for the takedown, but Anderson is prepared and goes for a KNEE jarring GSP again. This time he's hurt bad and is covering up. Anderson sees it and waits another second til he sees an opening then lands the death blow with follow ups til Herb Dean waives the fight off for the KO win. That hopefully will be the final MW defense for Anderson Silva providing he wins against Vitor Belfort.

Anderson knows GSP can't hurt em striking or on the ground so he will try high risk attacks; flying knees (counter takedown), jump kicks, elbows, etc. He did it against Chael even though he was losing prior rounds. This guys fights to win in emphatic fashion!

For GSP Anderson Silva will display his arsenal at the highest level. When he feels he's challenged this guy puts it on. Look at his two light weight bouts and against Rich Franklin for the Championship belt.

WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK...

This fight will never happen but if it does Anderson will beat GSP easily. You can say what you want about the ground etc but at the end of the day we all know the only way gsp wins this fight is by decision. Silva has to many tools to finish this fight. Silva will kill him standing up easily i don't think gsp has fought anyone with the striking ability of silva. If silva boxing or kicks are not enough to beat gsp then his knee or clinch will do it.

Plus i after the sonnen fight i don't think silva will let anyone take him down and keep him there. Even if GSP takes him down Silva guard is crazy hence they call him the spider.

You may call me bias but simply put gsp can't finish silva which gives silva 5 rounds to get the job done. Gsp is fighting an elite fighter he was able to bully bj penn but silva is the bigger dude. Plus silva has bj in his corner to help him with a game plan.

Umm, 'let' GSP take him down? So your implication is that Silva could have stopped Sonnen's takedowns but didn't feel like it? Or that Hardy, Fitch, Kos, etc etc all decided to 'let' GSP take them down. Wow, poor gameplanning on their part.

GSP nuthugger that I am, I still think Silva would be the favorite in this fight, and he wins it more than he loses it, but I don't understand how anyone could write GSP off after the Sonnen-Silva fight. Not only was Sonnen taking him down at will, but he was landing a lot. The only thing Sonnen has ever done better than GSP is grow. GSP is a better MMA wrestler, better striker, smarter, faster and has better coaching. If Sonnen can last 4 1/2 rounds with Silva, GSP can easily go five, and he could very well win a decision.

Only question I have is why do some people get so hyped up over this fight, GSP does not belong at MW he is the perfect example statue of a WW so why don't he just remain where he is as it is his rightful place even if he does clear the division again.

And as for Silva he really is a fine example someone who should be a LHW yet sucks down to compete at MW, I would actually much rather see him fight not just Shogun but Rash or even Thiago Siva or even Rampage, in fact **** it I would even rather see him fight Randy Couture or Tito, dam then there is the mouther of all fights Jones vs Silva, yes thats it never occurred to be before right now but Jones vs Silva at LHW lets see that over GSP vs Silva any day, or any other fighter listed.
