"Anderson is only two pounds overweight, so now we are ready to consider the rest," said Camoes. "On Friday we will have a meeting with the doctor who takes care of his body to see how best to cut what remains, but he is very strong, with a job well done and a very good power. He usually
trains at 93kg (205 lbs), cuts to 84kg (185 lbs), and then fights at about 90kg (198 lbs)."
According to this source he is generally around 198.
And you have a source about GSP being 185 against Condit. Even so he is still only 14 pounds lighter than Anderson, less than the difference between MW and WW
