I hate you so damn bad right now. I came in here to post the exact same thing >_< Voce fala Portuguese?

Haha, me as well. Even though I would rather see a Jones vs Silva build up, I am gonna giggle like a schoolgirl if Silva says that.

Call me crazy, but I still see GSP beating Silva. He could take hime down when ever he wanted, and his ground game is more dangerous than Sonnens. Obviously if GSP made the mistake of standing in front of Silva, Silva would destroy him.

Huge Silva fan. Why is he challenging down a weight class? That seems like some pansy shit. Pretty disappointing seeing him seemingly go down this path when the Jones fight is what really needs to happen. Hope nothing happens in Montreal.

Mushroom Slap - GSP doesnt want the fight. Bit of a dick move from Silva
GSP watched him at 112 when he fought Maia... Was that a dick move? Phone Post

if he comes into the cage after teh fight to call him out like the article says is a possibility.

GSP was supposed to do that at 112....until Andy pissed off Uncle Dana.

Seems GSP "wanted" ,or at least was going, to fight Anderson then!!!

I would much rather see Jones vs Silva instead. GSP is way too small compared to Anderson.

You fucking tool, he didn't suggest that he was there to call him out. He just came to watch. Phone Post
The plan at that time for was Silva to drop in weight and fight gsp after Maia. But because of the way that fight went Dana said no. Phone Post

Anderson is even smaller compared to Jones than GSP is compared to Silva.

I don't think it's that crazy either... people seem to think a sizeable weight advantage is needed to beat Silva though. Phone Post

Underestimating Silvas TDD.

GSP won't have the weight that Sonnen has and he did just fine in the second fight, he is working with a great wrestling coach.

220lb Bonnar couldnt get him down and you think GSP would?

It has been proven that Silva can be taken down, and it has been proven that GSP has some of, if not the best, take downs in MMA. GSP has taken down every high level wrestler that he has faced, and Silva does not have high level wrestling skills. So yes, I think GSP could take him down at will.

Good points.

 

Here is to hoping that GSP has the same faith in himself that you have in him and steps up after he beats Condit. I don't think GSP is as confident as you are though...

I have faith that he can take Silva down. As far as winning the fight; I think that it is very possible, but it is also very possible that Silva goes fukll matrix on him on the feet and GSP wakes up wondering what happend. This is a fight that i want to see, regardless of the outcome.

The GSP fight has to happen first. If he fights Bones first there is for sure no interest in the GSP fight. It's all about money. Plus Anderson has already said he wants about 3 more fights, so my guess would it goes GSP, some warm up as he is going back up in weight, and then Bones Jones.

A lot more money in two super fights than one Phone Post

Incorrect. His frame is closer to jones' than gsp's. When jones eased off training and his diet a few months ago he was 230, only 10lbs above what Anderson weighs when he does the same. They both are naturally closer in weight than you would think. Phone Post

Last I heard GSP said he won't fight silva unless they give 50% ownership of the UFC. He said he is the champion at 170 and Silva is the Champ at 185. He would move up to 185 but to many of his friends compete at 185 so there's no point. GSP however did say he would move up to 185 and fight Alessio Sakara, Buddy Roberts CB Dollaway, or Cung Le.

"Walking Weight" is the most useless thing there is.

 

 

When they are BOTH in the best possible shape for a fight they can be in:

 

Anderson: ~198-203

Jones: 218-226

 

What they weigh in the off season is meaningless.

 

Compare that to GSP who has been 192/3 for his last 3 fights in the cage. Do the math.

 

Frame wise Anderson is closer to Bones in HEIGHT, but reach is MUCH closer to GSP than Bones.

 

In the 3 major facets of "size" (height/reach/weight) GSP and Andy are much closer in 2/3 categories.

Anderson's frame comfortably and naturally carries a weight much closer to what jones' does. Anyone can manipulate their weight up and down as they see fit through diet and training but it is not an indication of what their natural weight is.

Hell, if gsp dieted and reduced his strength training similar to Anderson's he could likely fight at 155. Guys fight at a weight they feel most comfortable at but that's not always based on size. Phone Post
