More than likely if they fought... Silva would just destroy him in a manner similar to how he usually finishes his fights... and GSP instead of being one of the all time greats will be remembered as that "guy" who got KO'd in some creative and crazy way.
GSP has too much to loose in taking this fight.
So basically its ok that his legacy is nothing but a lie, thats just Bull Sh1t, he would lose nothing he hr fights and loses to Silva, he would lose more in terms of respect and shadows hanging over his legacy if he ducks out of this fight.
Let the Legacy of GSP be rewritten right now, Let it be known that he Cheated his way to winning the title, Lets it be know that he ducked out of the Greatest Match he was ever offered in his Life, Lets it be known that he was just a boring fighter to watch despite been a great talent within a single UFC division.
Hey, I jut had a great idea for a New GSP Bashing thread
