It would be sprawl and brawl 101. Maia would be tailor made for GSP. Anderson or Henderson? Now that is a completely different story. GSP is better off staying at welter weight if those are his opponents at 185.
    What about Bisping?

    I think GSP would take both Dan and Anderson down, if he couldn't, he'd lose (or be so cautious that we'd be bored)

    GSP would take down henderson. Hendersons style opens himself up for takedowns and if you give gsp an opening he will finish.

    I talked to some people who watch the training and they say gsp takes down marquardt and evans and they have yet to see either take him down.

    Dan is open to takedowns certainly. But GSP would finish Dan after going 4 rounds with BJ, 5 with Fitch and 5 with Alves? I doubt it. I think it would be big time LNP, the kinds that GSP fans used to bitch about when Hughes fought.

    Are you a troll?!
    Umm what skills did maia showcase in adcc that he has not known in mundials? Adcc is submission grappling with 99 percent of its participants being bjj guys with a few wrestlers or judokas mixed in.

    Did maia suddenly show that he was a more well rounded fighter after you saw him use his bjj in abu dhabi.

    Just to clarify i meant that gsp would finish the takedown if given the opportunity. He doesnt need to ko or submit henderson to win and i dotn see decision dan finishing gsp. GSP would keep a similar range as he did against against, he is much more elusive, skilled and disciplined so dont expect the big right hand to land. This fight would probably be similar to the misaki fight, gsp picking his spots and scoring takedowns here and there.

    hendersons strengths are not the same as GSP, this is what all those nerds who dont know wreslting do not understand, greco is not freestyle and this is why GSP will still be able to work his game on hendo, i like both but unless hendo can knock out GSP, i see GSP taking him down with little effort and working his face to hamburger like he did alves

    Who are the nerds you are referring to? I think all of us here know that Greco is different than freestyle and that Dan stands tall and rarely shoots.

    Don't assume that Dan can't game plan and would just walk into takedowns. Dan would employ a series of dirty boxing tactics and smother techniques which would leave GSP looking like BJ Penn left him after the 1st round of their 1st fight. That front headlock of Dan's and his superior hip positioning would be way too much for the French Canadian. And if Dan hits that glass chin-well if you thought Matt Serra made GSP quit, you haven't seen anything... Dan Henderson Bisping's GSP inside of 3 rounds.

    Dans only chance of winning the stand up is winning the standup is with a ko, otherwise he gets picked apart. If he does go for the big power punches he will be taken down repeatedly.
