I would much rather see that fight than Silva, who is way too big and long. I know GSP was a bit rusty and got touched a bit more than normal, but Silva is 10x the striker that Condit is, I would not like to see GSP get wrecked in a fight, when he still has a couple guys at 170 to roll with, and the same for Anderson, give him Bones and be done with it.
Sorry I know Hendrix knocked Fitch out, but honestly? He could have out wrestled him too? I just don't think so, Fitch and Askren are the two best wrestlers at 170. Thats what they do. They get you down and control you, I think Hendrix would have gotten out wrestled all night had that fight stayed on the ground. And if he can't catch GSP early or late in the fight, he's going to get real familiar with the ceiling of what ever venue they are fighting in.

"I don't call the fighting in my films 'violent', I call it 'action'. An action film borders between fantasy and reality. If I were to be completely realistic in my films, you would call me a violent, bloody man. I would simply destroy my opponent by tearing his guts out. I wouldn't do it so artistically." ~Bruce Lee
