    GSP's camp accepted it, Andersons too. Who you backing? For me Anderson, unless the cut is an issue but I dont think it will be. I see GSP getting KO'd with a lightning knee when he is shooting.

    If I was GSP I'd have insisted on meeting half way at 177.5lbs. A drained Anderson is his best chance! Laughing

    IF this happens, I'm backing GSP. As dangerous a striker as Silva is, I can see GSP (providing that he has fully recovered), controlling the fight better. Although, a glimpse at the predictions league, will tell you how good I am at this shit.

    Sonnen is a better wrestler than GSP and look how his second fight with Anderson went? No way GSP finishes him and Anderson is going to be bigger and stronger in the clinch. If it stays on the feet there's only 1 win and that's Silva.

    Anderson wins this by KO in the 2nd.

    Anderson definitely finishes GSP at some stage in a 5 round fight.

    I think GSP could be made to look out of his league in this fight.

    Between Lutter and Cheal,they showed us that GSP has the style to be a problem for Anderson,but both of those guys are much bigger and i would say stronger than GSP also.


    I don't doubt that GSP has a good chance at getting a takedown,but this is no BJ Penn,Alves or Hardy he's fighting,he's going to have to close a lot of distance to get there,while hoping not to be on the end of any Anderson strikes,but even if he does get the takedown,i'm not so sure he'll be able to keep a guy of Anderson's size and strength down,plus Andersons ground game isn't to shabby either.Two other great wrestlers,Hendo and cheal can attest to that.

    I think GSP's ways to win this fight are limited,while Anderson can win this anywhere and at any time.
