Silva wanders around the octagon waiting to see what his opponent will do.

GSP on the other hand already knows what his opponents will do before he ever gets into the octagon with them...and that folks is why he has a real good chance of beating Anderson.

gsp has the frame to put on some good size ... he'll stil be the smaller fighter ... what he does against shields will be a good indication on how a silva fight could go .. i am not saying silva and shields are similar .. LOL ..but if gsp can take shields down and avoid subs, then he might be able to do the same to ... i don't know if gsp will take down shields too many times though .. he might want to keep that fight standing and beat shields that way ...

In different weight classes - AS is way bigger than GSP and is known for finishing his opponents. The UFC hype machine would be working overtime on a fight that would last 10 seconds - for a fight that never should have happened.

Sonnen fans/Silva haters need to let it go already.
First of all, JB, just because someone doesn't want a certain fight to win doesn't make them a "hater". I am not a fan of AS as a fighter, but I respect his as a man, so lay off the labeling, it's gotten quite stale

When the best thing about a guy's career is a fight where he performed well but still got choked out, it's safe to say his fanboys are grasping at straws.
JB, stop with the pejoratives already, it makes me lose respect for you. I am a Chael fan, but if I am a boy I guess you are too, and a keyboard warrior to boot

You just made a subjective opinion

If you are gonna talk big, you gotta back it up, and losing is not backing it up no matter how fanboys try to spin it. Then, the outside stuff like the testosterone and money laundering are just icing on the cake of failures over the last year.
How about you not worry about his money laundering case - your opinion on his personal matters is not helpful, or necessary. As for the testosterone case, I'm sure there are 50 page threads on this website about that - I could care less. Fact is, Chael is a great fighter and he did to AS what no one else has. He deserves a second shot and WILL GET ONE.

Now size is the only deciding factor in a fight...right?

You are a hater. Sorry if that term rubs you the wrong way, but it's true. We are all haters from time to time, and you have been wanting to see Silva lose ever since he beat Franklin. That is a pretty classic case of haterdom.

You are clinging to the hypergonads of Chael and his one shining achievement and acting as if he should get an automatic rematch without having to put in the work like everybody else. Face it, Chael LOST and he embarrassed the UFC in the press over and over again, a fact which is NOT subjective. He's lucky they haven't just cut ties with him completely, let alone just handing him an instant rematch.

With that being said, I would love to see Silva/Sonnen 2. It would bring me great joy to watch Silva beat the "Oregonian gangster" for a second time.

JB, drop the 21st century pejorative lessons, ok? I don't hate Anderson Silva.

Now you're making sense, even though you'll be wrong!

Drop the oversensitivity and realize that it's just a figure of speech.

Embrace your inner hater and always remember...
