I have no clue how people think GSP has a chance.

Silva is EASY to take down, and keep down. Lay & pray is GSP's only shot at victory. I still think Silva would find a submission off his back if he doesn't get a KO while standing.

The same way that Chael had a shot. It'll be tougher for GSP, but it's possible.

It doesn't matter.

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

The only person who deserves a shot at him is the man is Chael Sonnen.

He is the only person to dominate Anderson in the UFC - granted he lost, but granted, he dominated him 4.5 rounds. He deserves the next shot.
See, even if it was a first round KO you have already branded the fight a "sorry letdown".

Chael Sonnen has done nothing to warrant an immediate rematch. He has been nothing but one embarrassment after another throughout 2010.

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?

if gsp won he would retire and do something else for awhile, wrestle in 2016 or something

i think gsp is a gamer, i think he is a superior athelete and i think he is smarter than silva i think in a street fight AS would win all day, i think in mma gsp is going to win, in a somewhat boring way, he will try to catch AS but prolly won't

could you imagine how beefy a 185 gsp will be?

Bollocks that! It would be a letdown because the hype would be overwhelming.

Sure he has, he's the ONLY PERSON TO DOMINATE ANDERSON in the UFC. His embarrassments are subjective at the least

I like GSP, but I think Silva would murder him. It could very well be close, but I think Silva will win. GSP should not fight him.
I would be more excited for Anderson Silva vs Bones Jones or Anderson Silva vs Fedor or even Anderson Silva vs Showgun.

Easy to TD and keep down for who? (Henderson and Sonnen).

GSP isn't Sonnen or Hendo, for one he isn't nearly as big as either of those guys,
I've met them both, and they're both really big guys,
I also don't think his top control would stop a sub.
