I really like how Palhares' name is mentioned, I agree. I'd really like to see that fight - he could make WW as well (the guy is 5'8!!).

Bisping would also fair alright, very fast hands and great standup, with a decent ground game and TDD.

Reckon Sonnen could cut to WW? If he could, problem solved.

Thanks to limba for this AWESOME sig

Exactly why i wish JBJ was a MW, im convinced he would make a Mockery of GSP.

As for someone small enough in MW to challenge a big WW in GSP, i don't think there is one...

At least not one that could challenge him with a level of striking or Wrestling he hasn't faced yet other then Anderson.

I would like to see Chael fight GSP, but other than him i dont have faith with any of the other MW's against someone like GSP

I think Chael could take GSP if he could get down to 170. Most of the MW are 200lbers, so I doubt most of them could cut down to 170.

Okay, bisping might be a better striker than gsp. That does not mean he is not having various love affairs with men and cheating on his wife.

Really? Maia couldn't even get Anderson Silva down and Silva does not possess half the TD defense GSP does.

Take the hater glasses off and actually be sensible.

First of all look at who GSP is essentially beating with strikes , Wrestlers now Bisping opponents are exactly amazing they are and have been better strikers than his previous few , his combinations are better he has better technique at punching i mean did you see GSP baseball throw over hand right i saw Liddell face palming.
GSP is beating wrestlers? GSP is beating complete fighters. Josh Koschek one of those "wrestlers?" Kos has better striking than anybody Bisping has ever beaten as does Alves and Hardy. Please tell me what great strikers Bisping has beaten? Akiyama? Leben? You know what the list of guys Bisping has in common most of them are sloppy brawlers who block punches with there face so they make Bispings stick and move style an above average ability to avoid damage look better than he really is. Bisping has slightly better than average striking but he rarely commits which is why he rarely looks for the knock out and also why he does a relatively good job avoiding damage. He is by no means horrible but to even compare his striking to an elite fighter like GSP never mind try to give him the edge is absurd. It would be like saying Dan Miller is gonna submit Demian Maia.

See thats the diffrence, I don't have to put down the haterade (I hate Bisping) or play with the fan boy glasses to look at it objectively. Bisping couldn't hold GSP's jock in a striking match.

Ain't that the truth. The only fighter that GSP's beaten recently who doesn't have better standup than the guys that Bisping has beaten is Matt Hughes. The next worst strikers on that list are Serra and Shields, either one of them are the equals of anyone on Bispings win list. After that you have Koscheck & Hardy in the next tier, then Fitch, BJ, and Alves in the top tier.

Seriously, Bisping is the guy that walked right into Hendo's right hand, then did it again against Kang, then ran scared and got dropped once again by an over the hill Wandy. Yeah, that's some serious high level striking there.

What about Chael Sonnen? Maia tossed him with ease.


The Silva fight was a bit of an anomaly.

I actually think Bisping could do this. Demian Maia or Chris Leben might as well.

Nate the Great fights for Jackson, so he's out. I do not see Sonnen or the other challengers cutting to 170.

Anybody?
Ya except Leben isnt really that good so no point
