Yes, but wouldn't it be great if GSP could get in and take him down and finish him?
He has probably a better chance of doing so than Sonnen. I just doubt he has the courage. GSP is one of the smartest, most skilled fighters I have seen. His striking is world-class; his takedowns may be the best in the business; his ground skills are at least competitive with Silva (IMO, they're better). He's just not that ballsy.

Fighting is not just physical is about who has the most knowledge
I'm not sure I could see GSP taking down Silva, if anything it would be a 5 round pattycake session that would end in a decision.
If this fight ever goes down I sure would want to see it happen.
I doubt it will . .
How about these fantasy super fights
Lesnar vs Emelianenko
Frank Shamrock vs Ken Shamrock
How about Ken Shamrock vs Royce Gracie
Steven Seagal vs Gene Lebell
Ed Soares vs Greg Jackson
Gene Lebell says Ronda Rousey could have taken Bruce Lee. I want to see that fight, it has about the same chance of happening as Silva-GSP.
We can only hope right?
It would be cool to see two fighters of such renowned skill go at it. Plus both of them are pretty classy guys IIRC. Pretty sure I've seen theach of them behave as quality sportsmen and not trash talk when given the mike. I have a lot of respect for the fact that they both show a lot of respect, not just to their opponents but to the sport.
Is it too much to hope for a clean, drama free and honerable competition between masters?
Other awesome hypothetical fights:
Bas Rutten vs Fedor Emilianenko
Kimura vs Mas Oyama
Bas Rutten vs Morihei Ueshiba
Ginchin Funakoshi vs Buakaw
Shokei Matsui vs Mike Tyson
Fedor Emilianenko vs Jigoro Kano
Ip man vs Oscar de la hoya
Mayweather vs Fidel Castro
Jet Li vs Ivan the Terrible
Genghis Khan vs Gene Lebell
What do you think?
Oh HELL YEAH!!!!

Bob Marley vs. Daniel Trejo
Who do you think would win? Ueshiba has teh real aiki!!1! but Bas Rutten has some ultimate cage fighting or something like that
