Default Let's talk about GSP vs Anderson Silva

GSP is awesome, but I think he will get DESTROYED if he fights Anderson Silva. I kind of feel sorry for GSP. What are your thoughts on this everyone ?

I couldn't disagree more, I think this is a very close fight ofcouse GSP stand a chance of getting knocked out but so does everyone who fights Anderson. However I see GSP taking him down and controlling the fight. On the feet us has to pop his jab and move against a much bigger fighter. I would preferto see this at a catch weight of 177 or there abouts

Gsp will get beat. Will he make it last a few min? Yeah, with wrestling. But he will get beat.

i think gsp takes him down and possibly stops him ... he is going to put on some weight and gsp isn't going to put on fat ... he is already strong ... gsp has better ground and pound than chael and better sub defense ....

GSP is easily one of the best P4P fighters in the world and arguably the best. I think it's ridiculous to say Anderson would destroy him. Beat him? Sure. But fighters at GSP's level don't get destroyed. IMO.

I think Anderson will win! I just hope its with a KO or sub. The main concern is I wonder if either fighter will want to aggressively engage or just counter fight.

Short of a Hail Mary Serra punch, I agree.

I've said it before, I personally think GSP has the more well rounded skills. However, the difference in skill level is marginal at best. The size difference though, is significant. Four inches in height, close to 30 pounds in natural walking around weight, several inches in reach...it's just a lot to overcome! I think GSP could beat 95% of the middleweights out there, 9 times out of 10...but Silva is a different beast. And for those that say Silva isn't as strong as GSP just because they've seen clips of GPS doing chin-ups with 90 pounds strapped to him, and haven't seen AS training with weights, just remember how he threw Rich Franklin around like a rag doll in their fights, and we all know Rich is a beast at 185!

I'd be pulling for GSP all the way in the fight, but I'd be on the edge of my seat the entire freakin' time.
