o yeh coz silva isnt a bjj black belt????
Anderson Silva got my vote for sure.
The Spider as beat people with good wrestling b4 ever heard of Hendo??? lol. + GSP is the smaller man so he is not going to have the size advantage he as a WW. Anderson has the reach the foot work the size the Xp at MW and the striking, so its not lookin good for old GSP.
The only way I see GSP winning is to have a very good game plan to keep it on the ground and lay on him to a decision like a wet blanky lol and not get KOed in the process. Remember GSP dont have the best chin in the world (not that it is bad) but he dont have a Scott Smith style chin is all im sayin. if Hendo cant keep Anderson down I dont think GSP well :-)
I'll have to agree with nux2k on this one
Thanx Young gohan I try my bes :-)
actually gsp would pack on more muscle and his wrestling is only getting better and he probally has the best strategy and gameplans in all of mma and silvs only has half of an inch reach advatage dont doubt him
ya penn has a black belt too and is much more dangerous on the ground then silva
Uhm no. BJ Penn IS. BJ ALSO HAS THE BEST TAKEDOWN DEFENSE IN ALL OF MMA, no matter how small he is....
ya randy couture had trouble taking him down
ya tour right he quit like a bitch cause he was getting his ass kicked and didnt want to take anymore punishment
A bigger GSP is more likely to beat the Spider...Many don't know that Silva walks at 220 - 240 pounds when he's not in the ring....He's just too huge for the Canadian lad...
Anderson Silva - KO/TKO first or second round
Yes the question is are we talking if they fought today or after GSP bulks up for welterweight? Because yes I don't see Anderson beating a GSP his own size, he won't be able to stop the take downs.
the fights are there in the right below the public wall
2 of my favorite fighters...if gsp bulked up it would be colser but i think anderson silva would win...but you never know
well i think its stupid to make a point on a fighter's level by mentionning old losses. Gsp has improved a lot and has learn from, that is y he is so good today mentally and physically. you cud say the same thing abt Silva who humiliating losses in his record. We all know who the untouchable guy is FEDORR and maybe Machida if he beats Rua convincingly.
by untouchable i meant clean record and no losses in dominating fashion like gsp or silva.
a fight of this caliber would never end in a decision....either man has the potential of winning......1st round....tko or submission...peace....stop taking sides and stop talking shit.....
hmm.. GSP got TKO'd by Sera I mean come on...
compared to griffin which Silva barely tag.. but it would be interesting tho.
Those who voted for GSP either don't like Silva or are showing there MMA knowledge. I think Silva's the reason GSP hasn't moved up yet, he's not ready.
gsp will take silva down easaly whenever he wants, and has the ability to hold silva down and ground and pound him out. gsp tko or decision victory!
yer a while man altogether judas, chattin dung as usual then voting for ur own comments, weak dude, weak
silva would kill gsp standing, he could tap him, and his bjj will be better than gsps wrestling
your a silva fanboy dan!! silva is not unbeatable and he has poor takedown defence, silva is a perfect match for gsp, dont underrate gsp skills
lies judas! when was silva last ko'd? NEVER! gsp? 2007, against matt sera, a good fighter, but inferior compared to gsp. even if it goes to the ground silva's bjj will be better than wrestling.
people ignore judas, the man is so ignorant, he refuses even to acknowledge the last emperor's greatness and achievements
The Lutter mount, the round Hendo won, funny stuff. Who won those fights?
no competition silva would win so easily
Damn.... that is really a tough one to predict... i won't cast my vote on this one because it really is not fair to favor one over the other... they are both great!
But my prediction is that such a fight would really go the distance...
