    Around the time Silva had just matrixed Forrest and GSP had just 50-45’d Alves.

    I got Silva winning by stiffening KO in round 2, after gsp lands a few takedowns. Discuss.

    Anderson would have bodybagged him. Same way Jones would have bodybagged Anderson and GSP did bodybag BJ. GSP wanted none of it. And rightly so.

    GSP via the Chael blueprint for 25 minutes, or Anderson via KO.

    My money's on Anderson.

    GSP never had the Chael blue print. He didn't bullrush and chain wrestle like Chael. He didnt pressure like Chael. He was patient. Used his jabs to set up takedowns. Took calculated shots. Anderson would have merked him I think.

    GSP would hit the deck unconscious. If Condit landed that high left kick, I'm confident that a legit elite striker like Silva mauls the Canadian

    Silva would have deaded him, and that's a fact. That fight would have generated so much money for its time, it would have been unreal. GSP never would commit, for a reason.

    After seeing what Chael did, and what a depleted Lutter was able to do, GSP would have easily decisioned a prime Spider.

    There is a reason why GSP didn't want the fight.

    Legacy-wise, terrible fight for No Rush.

    He either loses badly, by violent KO [knee or else], or wins by lousy L&P (and indeed he himself acknowledged it saying that his fear was to have to implement a 'boring' gameplan to get the win)

    There isn’t a single fighter ever, from Middleweight and under, that could’ve beaten 2009 GSP.

    Obviously he didn't share your optimism, hence he ducked Silva. GSP only went up in weight against a cherry picked Bisping, 10 years later. All facts

    GSP because his fight IQ is much higher

    GSP would have beat Anderson. GSP has great coaches that would have exposed the flaws in Anderson's game that have been around since the beginning of time. Dummies in the UFC decided to stand with a striker that was a level above and they paid for it. GSP isn't that fucking stupid.

    He would have put Anderson on his ass whenever he wanted. WHENEVER HE WANTED. And Anderson ain't pulling out a miracle Triangle choke like he did against Sonnen. lol.

    Anderson by TKO in either the first or second round. He was too big, too lethal, and too damn good.
