Default Silva/GSP coming?

What do you all think? I think since they have both cleared out their divisions, it's going to happen. GSP might be able to ride out the victory on top, but I think just like Chael Sonnen, he would get tapped at some point.

Bad fight for GSP and I thought that before tonight. There is no positive in fighting someone in a higher weight who is as good as Anderson is. He should just try to get as many title defenses as he can.

exactly wrong


there is no need to fight someone who is moving up a weight to fight you when they are as good at winning as gsp is

gsp has nothing to lose, spider does.... everyone is going to think what you are thinking , spider should win cause it is his weight class, who will hold it against gsp if he doesn't win?

Forgot GSP still has to deal with Jake Shields but I think GSP takes him.

I don't think GSP wants to fight Anderson. And to GSP, I think it would matter, a lot, if he lost to Anderson no matter the different weight class. GSP doesn't want to lose...period. IMHO And I do think he is going to lose in a fight with Anderson.

But, what if GSP were to win, what happens next? Would DW immediately give Anderson the opportunity to win it back? Is GSP going to bounce back and forth between WW and MW to defend both titles? I doubt it. I know as JB says this would be a superfight and draw a lot of viewers, but I guess I don't see how it will benefit either division. Benefit Silva or GSP, the UFC and the sport, yes, but the divisions themselves...or maybe that doesn't matter?

a P4P superfight of that caliber trumps any effect on the divisions themselves.
