    I dont think size will be the big issue in this one...GSP has legs like a LHW and trains with middleweights like Marquadt and LHW's like Rashad Evans and takes them down in sparring. It's more that Anderson just knows how to find a way to win.

    GSP should be a dog. Where is he going to put 20 lbs that helps him? To me it seems like Silva is really a 205er who can fight at 185. His frame is bigger than everyone. Beach muscles arent going to be at Georges advantage. One thing for sure, is gsp is going to make a mint off the fight. He's taking all of the risk right?

    1. you've probably been eating thai food for 6 years.

    2. i didnt say he was going to win. i said you are dumb (or perhaps very very ignorant is a better term) if you dont think gsp is good. here is a list of the best fighters in the world in order:

    silva, velasquez, gsp.

    but gsp Can win.

    GSP is the best pound for pound but too small

    SPider's reach is gonna be too much for GSP to handle. Got luck throwing your money down the drain on canadian boy.
    Excellent point, only about 100 of the greatest fighters on the Earth have managed to submit Chael Sonnen. Really puts him in elite company with Trevor Prangely, Jeremy Horn, Jeremy Horn again, and BJJ wizard Forrest Griffin.

    The only thing more impressive would be a broken rib Anderson Silva rear naked choking Frank Trigg

    I'd like GSP to win but at these odds I'd have to take Silva were I to place a bet today.

    Thats what I am saying, he should be fighting 205'ers. His excuse use to be Machida, now when Jon Jones wins the fight, Id love to watch them two go at it!

    hopefully gsp get's a very close win over shields. that would make people pile into silva even more. right now, the odds on gsp suck.

    THIS

    this is the only reason why i love comments on forums about silva being too big for gsp. i'm waiting for the odds on gsp to go up. so far the books aren't falling for it though.

    It will be interesting to see if Bookmaker leaves the line up during the Shields fight. If GSP loses his first rd, hit Silva regardless of who you really like because the line will be moving your way.

    good call, im betting they take it down because it can be said the other way also. If gsp wins the fight his number is going down, no doubt about it and gsp at +145 is great odds. Especially because he is probably going to be the favorite by fight night, the amount of people who back gsp and hate silva grows everyday.

    It just sucks it could literally take a year before this fight happens. Id rather see gsp take his sweet ass time gaining weight for a future super fight and silva fight Okami in Rio in the meantime.

    1. Nice attempt at a cheap shot pal, I'd like to see you say that to my face while I kick you in the chin.

    2. Did you get offended because I said your bf is shitty. OK, maybe I exaggerated. But he's no match for Anderson and the fight will reflect that.

    AS and GSP have the same offseason weight and AS has like 3 inches on height and 1 1/2 in reach. They are actually almost the same size and I think gsp will look bigger than AS(mass wise)....

    you= guy who doesnt know much about mma who threatens people on the internet
    me= guy with a crossbow

    not offended. like you just admitted in point number two there- you have definitely exaggerated. i agree that anderson's reach would be too much for him and that he'd have the edge but i would take gsp +170 all day long.
