I think this fight is closer than most people would like to think ... GSP is very strong and wouldn't get tossed around like people think ... it won't be like GSP/Penn in terms of size difference ... i would pull for GSP in this fight, but i wouldn't bet money on him winning ... actually, it would depend on the odds i am getting LOL ... if he is a huge dog, i would throw some money on him ..
I disagree, I like GSP just fine but Silva is a HUGE middle-weight and looks as big as most 205'ers just walking around. While GSP is a very big welterweight, I just see the size disparity as a huge obstacle for him. When two guys have similar skill sets the bigger guy does
have the advantage. 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.
