    You seem quite angry. A big Maia fan? Do you think Maia is just as good a fighter as Anderson? In what way is he superior? If so, did he display his superiority at any time during the fight?

    Keep in mind that in order to actually be a superior ground fighter you actually have to be capable of taking the fight to the ground. Otherwise you have to hope your opponent will lay down for you or perhaps be willing to start the fight with the two of you on your knees.

    In a fight between AS an GSP, I see Anderson winning by KO within two rounds.
    Explain to me why you are so confident the fight would go this way.

    Please try to leave your attraction to Silva out of it.

    ****, no. Maia got KO'd in twenty-one seconds by Nate Marquardt. Silva not only couldn't put him away, he got worse as the fight went on.

    By my scorecard, he won the fifth round. He also led the fight in terms of not being scolded by the ref, not apologizing afterwards, and not getting booed by the people who paid to watch him fight.

    Did you even watch the fight?

    GSP / Silva - Does anyone really believe that GSP doesn't have a better chance to take this to the ground than Maia did? Seriously.

    Silva has superior striking. Agreed. But Maia was completely unprepared to take this fight to the ground. He was prepared to be there, but not to get there, and Silva was uninterested in engaging, which made that even less likely to occur.

    Regardless of who moves up or down, this would be an interesting fight, and by no means a forgone conclusion.

    The way to bring them together is the "double weigh in" provision - with that, I don't think it matters as much if this is catchweight or Silva moves down. I'm not sure GSP moving up makes as much sense, except that it opens a whole lot of other interesting fights for him beyond Silva (should he choose to stay up there).

    GSP couldnt even do **** to purple belt Dan Hardy on the ground, yet according to his nuthuggers he is somehow meant to miraculously tear through high level black belt Silva there. IF the fight goes to the ground GSP will be eating elbows possibly even submitted.

    If olympic wrestler Dan Henderson who usually fights two weight classes above GSP and is much tougher couldnt keep Silva on the ground and finish him then how is GSP, who is unable to finish a guy ranked somewhere between 10-15 in the weightclass supposed to do it?

    GSP might be able to get it down once or twice but he will end up getting knocked out sooner or later in if this fight does happen.

    I don't think it's nuthugging to say this would be an interesting fight.

    What did GSP do to black belt BJ on the ground? I'm not saying he would do that to Silva by any stretch, but I am saying that trotting that out as way of predicting the outcome is a bit lame.

    BJ Penn is a lightweight that was fighting as a fat WW. Anderson Silva is pretty much a natural LHW that cuts down to middleweight. Slight difference...

    Im saying that if GSP takes Silva down, he will probably be in bigger trouble than Silva. Elbows from the bottom FTW

    Except for absolutely dominate him to the tune of two 10-8 rounds.

    He made minor, fixable technical mistakes with his armbar and kimura, and waited too long for the leg lock. Everything else was textbook.

    Silva has fought as low as 167 in the past. It's been a long time, mind you.

    I agree - Penn fattened up to move up, and that was part of the issue. I think GSP knows that too and that's why he wants time to actually build muscle to get there.

    I do think the double weigh in makes the difference on this and pretty much any catchweight bout. It's just too easy for the bigger man to be substantially bigger by fight time under the standard rules.

    Let's go at this another way - even if you are sure that Silva would win, do you see this being a more or less competitive fight than his remaining competition at MW, or even at 205? I suppose Rua ...
