Size is the biggest unknown here, but skills against skills GSP runs away with it. GSP has looked massive lately, he's really done a good job with his weight training and I think if he can get it to carry over to 185 he wins easily.
GSP would take this with little problems. Chael has great take downs and shitty sub defense. What a crazy combination lol.
His game is always just to push forward and get the takedown, he is willing to take some shots to get inside... I do see him being able to get GSP down, he has the skill as well as some good size/strength on GSP.
nice ass btw, you got to come in from the side every now and then. good find.
No question GSP could sub Chael if he was on top, but we havent seen GSP defending off of his back in a while. Im sure Sonnen has been working on his sub defense as well...
It would actually be a fight I would look forward to seeing.... Even if it wouldnt be the most exciting, it would be interesting to see how it played out.
Just straight up skills GSP wins easily. Take Chaels size advantage out of the mix and he has nothing he does better then GSP. At best his takedowns are just as good but GSP's takedown defense is way better.
The size difference makes it a closer match though I could still see GSP winning by sub or close decision.
