Okami getting ****ed again not really a surprise. GSP won't even be the better grappler in this fight. Andy's bjj is vastly superior and the size, length, and strength advantage he will have will make it near impossible for GSP to control him on the ground.

Whatever with Okami. The guy rarely impresses. He barely beat a guy who lost to Silva, and lost to another guy that did as well.

If you want a shot at Silva, and take away time from his amazing journeys into other weight classes you better ******* bring it and show something dominant against quality opponents.

Silva is too good for 'challenger's because someone has to be a challenger' title fights.

Objectively speaking, since Serra really, GSP started becoming a safety first fighter and became aaa litte b**ch.

I think Silva can bring out the young fiery GSP that finished people, unorthoodox striking, taking other fighters out of their element, putting it on the line, mixing everything up, multi-tooled MMA fighter, could do it all, with a mission to end the fight.

After Shields there is no one else. GSP V Fitch II, Penn III --- No, thank you. I'd rather see him go off and join the Canadian Olympic Wrestling team or something.

And really, truly, if wrestlers nullify Silva's entire game as Sonnen demonstrated.. and the whole rib thing was a farce as so many claim.. GSP-lovers should have nothing to worry about.

The thing I like about the UFC is that they are the only ones with the ability to set up dream matches between the Top #10 P4P MMA Fighters in the world. The only Top P4P King not in the UFC is Fedor, I know Overeem is a top HW but I dont think Overeem is considered a Top #10 P4P MMA Fighter. The prime example was BJ Penn(at the time) vs GSP 2. That thing had so much hype in a fight between not only champions but best P4P fighters. I am sure their are other examples in earlier rankings and UFC's.

But now We could see stuff like Dominick Cruz vs Jose Aldo, Jose Aldo vs Frankie Edgar , we are already seeing BJ Penn vs Jon Fitch. They are still considered 2 of the best even if it could be a snooze fest, though if BJ loses to Fitch, for sure he lost his P4P status. GSP vs Fitch 2, GSP vs Anderson Silva (Top 2 P4P kings going at it? Me like!), Anderson vs Shogun/the interchangeable deep LHW division, GSP vs Shields is also happening. The UFC can always put matches between the Top 10 guys in MMA today. THe only guy that isint facing these guys is Cain, if Fedor or Oveerem can solidify their status by winning this tournament, it makes sense for Cain to fight the winner. Dana White should press hard to sign them to the UFC for this, though im sure he still doesent like the "crazy russians". The only other guy thats on the outside looking in is maybe Gilbert Melendez. But their are plenty of tough guys for Edgar to fight at 155 and coming up from 145 like Aldo. The only one that needs a super fight thats currently impossible is Cain. He needs a Fedor or a (HW GP winning) Overeem to come over and fight him.

Okami just can't catch a ******* break.....

GSP is too small for Anderson, who is pretty much a LHW and GSP is just an average size WW.

I highly doubt GSP will spend any time striking with Silva.
