GSP vs Vitor @185
With GSP being rumored to be thinking of going up there are some exciting matchups. I think that a matchup with the phenom would be great. SO who takes it if it happens, my gut says Vitor by KO in the second, but GSP has surprised me before.
great fight idea bro...Vitor might be strong enough to defend the take downs and could easily catch George. But I go with GSP by decision.
GSP would wrestle and wear him down for the first two rounds and Belfort would gas because of GSP's relentless pace and TKO GSP third round dominating performance IMO.
Good match up. The question this poses is could Vitor knock GSP out before GSP lands a takedown? Not likely.
GSP by unanimous decision.
Vitor will clip GSP on a takedown attempt and go to sleep
Vitor KO RD 2
i gotta take vitor by ko, he learnt alot every time he lost to randy.
I dont see Vitor beating gsp. He has trouble with wrestlers, ppl say he learned alot from fighting Randy, yet didnt learn enough to stop tito? Yeah GSP by UD in a 3 round fight. Stoppage in 5.
First, they might have been referring to his training at Couture, not just the fights, or I might be reading into things.
Second, I thought Vitor won the Tito fight, but the performance by both fighters were close, and Vitor did more damage and came far closer to ending it than Tito did.
Third, Tito is an excellent wrestler, he might not have Georges' takedowns, but he's every bit as good a wrestler as GSP, if not better. Then, factor in that Tito is absolutely enormous compared to Vitor, and was still fighting close to peak form at that point. Comparing the pale shadow of Tito today to his performances at that point is just night and day. Now all that's left is a giant head and an empty soundbyte, but that would be a horrible misjudgement of his ability back in the day.
This fight also occurred at the worst period of Vitor's life: during the first year or so when his sister had been missing without a trace. Following his career, there is an obvious drop around here in Vitor's performance, but he still did enough in the first two rounds to win Tito fight, in my opinon.
Today; Vitor is every bit as explosive as Georges, with much better handspeed, better striking and the legitimate KO power that GSP lacks. He's also not a slouch on the ground. I don't doubt that GSP could take him down, but I just don't see Georges stopping him with the first successful takedown, or even controlling him for the entire fight. I think their groundgame is very competative. It would be interesting to see Georges on his back again, and Vitor has the potential to put him there.
I think Georges holds an obvious advantage in conditioning, and I believe he's still got some reach on Vitor [which would tell you the something about the physical advantages he employes at WW] but I think the match is very, very competative. Obviously Georges comes in with great plans from a great camp, but I think it's too early to tell how much Vitor has improved at XC. I do think that Georges is focusing some much-needed effort on his ground game [if he's going to be successful at MW, it's needed] and that just makes the fight more interesting.
In the end, I think Vitor has more ways to end the fight, but I think it's a fantastic matchup.
Vitor By KO or TKO
i dont doubt that gsp could get him down but i dont think he could keep him down and a flash ko during a scramble or during the takedown attempt would be very likely, i'll take vitor on this one
