I don't see why people think he is too small, he is definitely smaller than a lot of the guys cutting from 10 puounds heavier, but a lot of those guys have fat as well and GSP's body fat is ridiculously low (probably around 4-5%).

Skillset wise, if it stays standing for longer than a couple minutes GSP will get knocked out, but if he is smart and performs the same game plan as Chael Sonnen and what Dan Henderson did in Rd 1, GSP will win.
I can't believe there are still people out there who think AS would beat GSP after the Sonnen fight.

The size difference isn't that big of a deal when you have TD weakness as bad as AS does.

The same people who call GSP a safe fighter are saying he wouldn't take down AS and ride him out for 5 rounds? How does that make sense?

GSP wouldn't get submitted either. GSP would dominate Silva for 5 rounds no problem.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

People don't give GSP enough credit. WW is a much more stacked division. The combined winning % of GSP's opponents when they met him is 85.2%. Anderson's opponents are at 75.3%.

MW is just not as deep.

im not going to mention Anderson having a screwed up rib in the fight, (even though i just did...) but i don't see GSP being able to take him down at will for 5 rounds and just getting away with it.

I do personally believe JBJ would destroy GSP more then Anderson but id still put my money on AS no doubt

I'm a fan, but I'm not delusional. JBJ would likely beat GSP.

That being said GSP would beat AS. Styles make matchups and GSP's strengths just so happen to be AS biggest weaknesses. AS has always had a weakness against wrestlers. It wasn't just Sonnen... and if you bring up the ribs, I'll bring up the eye poke. Thats about how over done both of those are

Umm even GSP knows he doesn't have skills to beat AS, otherwise GSP would have fought AS long time ago.

Anderson would destroy GSP, and GSP knows it

Anderson Bones is the real superfight. People should be hyping that and stop hyping this ridiculous mismatch

I think GSP's a great champion and a great ambassador for the sport. He's also imo the most dominant welterweight champion in history.

That being said, I think Anderson Silva would beat him. This is mma anything can happen (although GSP takes NO risks), but I'm pretty sure Anderson would win 98% of the time.

As for the GSP can beat light-heavyweights and heavyweights at a UFC level argument. We just saw GSP come off a lackluster performance and his supporters turn around and say he can beat lightheavyweights/heavyweights? Lol, get a hold of yourselves.

Yeah. Still, if the public demand it, and Dana demands it, Anderson doesnt have a say in the matter

First of all, who wouldn't get taken down by a roided up Sonnen? People make it seem like it's a disgrace to get taken down by him when the guy is probably the best MMA wrestler P4P including GSP. Sonnen could take down anyone at will at 185. Secondly, Anderson wasn't himself that fight. We've seen Anderson destroy guys, grapplers included, when he's his usual self. Concerning GSP, how would GSP setup his takedowns? The reason why GSP is so successful against wrestlers is because wrestlers are weary of his standup, so they become tentative to go for takedowns and be aggressive. GSP's mechanical-esque standup is not good enough to the point where Anderson would have to respect it. I think GSP would steal a couple of rounds with takedowns in a 5 round match, but every round starts standing up, and every second GSP is on his feet, he's flirting with getting knocked out. Also if GSP gets caught in a bad spot, like a frankie or lensar "bad spot", does anyone think he could overcome adversity, or fight when he's not on his game? I think Anderson can, and that should be taken into account as well. I wouldn't see this going 5 rounds. This would either be a KO or TKO. Lets not forget, Silva is dangerous off his back as well. It would be hard for a 5'10" guy to control such a long guy who's a BJJ black belt. Silva can strike with the best of them off his back if it goes there.
