Granted, the UFC is completely different now, but skills not size is the ultimate decider IMO. GSP probably would have the best skill set of all the fighters Silva has faced to this point.
When 2 fighters are skilled, size is a huge factor.
GSP may beat some guys in the MW division that are way less skilled than he is. But he would be in a world of trouble against somone like Anderson who is very very skilled.
As well as for Anderson, he can beat some guys in the LHW division, but he would have a very hard time beating Jones...just as Jones would have a very hard time beating Cigano.
Skill is the most important thing, but when 2 fighters are equally skilled, the size can be the ultimate decider.
