    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    GSP vs. Silva COULD be epic.

    Emphasis on COUlD.

    It could also be an 8 sided slaughterhouse.

    actually, I thought henderson gave silva a pretty good fight right up until the KO. he won the first round on my card.

    there's an old saying about sports in general that I think applies to both silva & gsp : "you're never as good as you look when you win, & you're never as bad as you look when you lose."
    both those guys have had impressive recent runs, but I'll bet neither one is as invincible as he seems right now.

    I do think any of henderson, silva, or franklin would knock gsp into next week.

    Fitch
    Rematch Karo
    Rematch Kos(give him a year to improve, which he's rapidly doing)
    Thiago Silva
    Diego Sanchez
    Bj Penn

    that's a lot of very legit dudes gunning for GSP. And only three middleweights would meet his "superfight" criteria. Silva, Franklin, Henderson.

    I don't. GSP is simply better at every range of the fight than franklin. Franklin simply has seasoning and athleticism. Henderson, on the other hand, would be a complete bitch for him.

    They actually normally walk around at close to the same weight(like 5lbs difference)

    Didn't expect all the Franklin loving on this thread, but all I can say is I'm skeptical of saying that such a bout would be anything near unfair to GSP. Georges has demonstrated that his skill is on another level as he combo's his striking, takedowns, and grappling together in fluid succession. Just how Silva is on another level at middleweight.

    GSP's biggest flaws are his confidence, and his chin. He never seems to take getting caught too well, compared to other fighters who bulldoze through punches. I have a feeling Silva would pick him apart once he landed one or two good shots.

    Given that GSP apparently takes down Rashad Evans and Keith Jardine at will, I'm not really confident that Franklin not being smaller than GSP is going to be a big deal if it ever happens.

    Franklin was unable to stop lutter's takedowns until lutter's heart exploded (or whatever fucking happened).
