    seeing him blast through all of these supposedly "stylistic nightmares", that's how

    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.

    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.
