Default Anderson vs GSP.. why it really doesn't matter..

Anderson Silva - If he wins.. what does he prove? He can beat a smaller guy who is fighting outside of his "natural weight class"? He won't push the fight once in the ring. We will end up with a Silva/Maia 2 at best.

The only fights that make sense for Andy is (since he cleaned out the division) is LHWs that are wanting to drop down to stay in the UFC cause they aren't making it where they are at (IMO Frankliln doesn't count as he had pretty much cleaned the divsion at the time.. with the exception of Silva), or.. Chael and Lutter.. Chael cause he is the ONLY one to recently give him a run.. and Lutter.. cause he was winning, until the elbows (which should have been ruled illegal) came down. Okami won his fight after an illegal kick..does that mean we need to see that fight???

Or how about Andy moving to LHW and staying there?

GSP - If he wins... does that mean he will make a run for a MW title? Hardly.... GSP only fights when he has something to lose.. or to gain...

If we could see him fight like he did in his 2nd Serra fight.. or when he knew he stood a good chance of losing against Hughes.. If THAT GSP would fight Andy.. THAT would be a fight worth watching.

But if it happens.. you will see GSP doing his normal "stick and move" to win a fight.. and many people will find that VERY boring.. (I am not one of them)

And we all know that GSP won't go for a KO against Andy... But I would love to see Andy stick his chin out and ask to be hit... then GSP KO him BAD... but no.. that won't happen.
It is because you chose to get on the mat that makes you the winner. Think about how many people are not on that mat right now. - Luis Sucuri Togno
