I do think that GSP could probably get the take down, but then what? Hell, Hendo couldn't do anything when he got Silva down, what makes you think GSP is going to be able to do better?
Since they will never fight, its a moot point but I do think that Machida would be a very interesting match up for Silva.
i am not sold on Machida, if he beats rashad, which i don't think he will, then maybe .. but i put rashad, rampage above machida ... right now i think silva beats machida
