    Silva, when he was champ and all the Mystique, would of loved to see GSP get him down Chael sonnen style, but NOT GAS and GET subbed.
    all that talk and they never fought.... A FUCKIN SHAME

    Voted Anderson, but would have liked to see him humble the shit out of Askren tbh.

    Anderson and it's not even close.

    I suspect people voting Khabib are 'newer' fans

    The biggest fight in UFC history would’ve been GSP-Silva 2008-2010 era....

    I voted Khabib because the style matchup is more interesting to me for whatever reason

    I don't know why this is even a question.

    Of course the answer is going to be Silva.

    That's arguably the most desired matchup in MMA history.

    Mostly because I hate Conor, and hate people that knock GSP for not finishing enough ... GSP/Conor would have been great, 2 birds with one stone. Conor gets that ass beat, and GSP gets a devastating finish.

    So the live threads will work basically like chat rooms in the mid 90's?

    Cool.

    Khabib.

    It would have been historic and unprecedented. There’s no question. And we all KNOW GSP would have Sonnen’d Silva. Without the Hail Mary sub at the end.

    Meh,

    I'm an 'old' guy but think the Khabib fight is more interesting, and that if it happens at 155 we might see more fights out of George's.

    meh i didn't want to see him take an extended break to add the mass to face Anderson on fair terms. So I voted for Woodley since GS clearly ducked the dude big time.

    Anderson back when they were both dominant champions.

    Now.... Tony Ferguson would be brilliant.

    If it was based on just the present day, I'd go for Woodley, just because WW is his natural weight class. If it's the most wanted GSP fight of all time though, I'd say he should have fought Silva about seven years ago.
