    I think it's safe to say GSP isn't a risk taker. Most other fighters probely would of came back several months earlier. He made sure his knee wouldn't be a weak link. Everthing GSP does is highly calculated out. He's a smart guy and untilizes todays technogly to it's utmost. There's still one contender he hasn't faced before and thats Hendricks. Rorys not there and probely wont face him anyhow. I've had enough of Silva/Soares ettemp to money gouge the system to hope all high dollar vanity fights fall through. Yes I'll watch them but thats beside the point.

    I agree with other folks, Silva absolutely destroys GSP in my view. I respect both fighters but just as people are wary of striking b/c of GSP's takedowns, GSP will be wary of diving in on Silva who can throw nasty shots as he dives in.

    Especially as Silva is very good at minor head moment to roll with punches, he won't be as off guard when GSP transitions from punch to takedown. I think that's actually why Sonnen fairs so well - he pushes through with an iron chin until he's almost chest to chest and then drops for the TD. A fast double from the outside is great, but you can't adjust easily if you find a punch or knee flying at you...

    If Anderson wants to chase vanity fights, DROP THE EELT. Very simple.
    ^ This. (Aside from that "EELT" thing :P )

    Have you seen the WW division?!

    I had similar thoughts, but GSP has always gone for the size advantage and serious weight cuts. And putting on weight when you can't train 100% is a good way of ensuring that you don't lose muscle mass.

    I think it's just as likely that GSP got pudgy for a bit and then when apeshit building up his legs for stability and hopes of avoiding future injuries.

Also condit is much better off his back then Anderson. If you take that one high kick out of the fight condit got completely dominated.
    seeing him blast through all of these supposedly "stylistic nightmares", that's how

    I think Silva's movie is the type where he's actually on screen for the majority of it and that could take upwards of a month. Rampage's acting might not seem that bad after we see the straight to DVD reviews of Silva's film.
    Anderson Silva in a major role? scary....


    We will have to see... I assume its another one of Segal's money grab stright to DVD type movies, and he got Anderson a small part because they are friends... to let Anderson get a small taste for the business...

    I doubt we are going to see a lethal weapon type movie with both of them playing equal roles...

    Interesting... GSP filmed the movie before his fight with Penn, and it released shortly after their 2nd fight... Where he fought the smaller, LW champion.

    Should he have relinquished his title as well? seems to fit your logic...

    Hell, that movie sucked... the UFC should have made Anderson, GSP, and BJ all give up their belts.

    I want to see Jones vs Silva while Silva is still in his prime! Dammit, how many "contenders" does he need to destroy? The dude is on a different fucking planet than the entire division. This fight needs to happen before Silva gets hurt or old in one night. This fight would take the UFC to a new level. Build it for a few months and make it for a huge weekend like Christmas or maybe even Superbowl weekend 2014. And do it at the cowboys stadium......cause I want to see that motherfucker for FREE!!!

    Of course Silva could rock GSP, thats not in question at all, its if he ever gets the chance to do it i mean this was the first time GSP has been rocked since the Sera fight so he doesnt open himself to damage often. As good as Silva looked against bonnar, if he has his back on the cage GSP will take him down, Chael provided the blueprint, GSP will try to do what looks like the impossible and it will be a classic fight
    If GSP were to beat Anderson... It would look nothing like the Sonnen fight... Other than the obvious takedown->top control->UD approach

    GSP's wrestling and transitions are WAY different than Sonnens... His top game is far superior, as is his sub defense....

    Would he be able to eat as many shots as Sonnen, and just bull rush through Anderson's space... Dont think so, dont see him taking that approach either.
