    Default Dana: Anderson is too big for GSP

    Disappointing (although I'm not sure GSP wants this fight either).

    I think hes too big for Georges. Forrest Griffin is huge and at the (UFC 101) weigh-ins, when we squared them off, he was as big as Forrest at 205 (pounds). The guy is unbelievable. [Feb. 2010"> is a long layoff for [St. Pierre"> and hes a big star for us. So we want to get him back in as soon as possible.

    UFC President Dana White has put the kabosh (at least for now) on a potential super fight between middleweight deity Anderson Silva and welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre after The Spider clowned former light heavyweight champion Forrest Griffin earlier this month. His first order of business is to get St. Pierre who injured his ab-duck-tore ligga-ment in a five round decision win over Thiago Alves back in July healthy and back inside the Octagon sooner rather than later. Its likely that hell face the winner of the match between Mike Swick and Martin Kampmann later this year or ine arly 2010. Silva, on the other hand, will likely defend his 185-pound title against either Dan Henderson or the winner of the UFC 102 bout between Demain Maia and Nate Marquardt at UFC 105 on Nov. 21. He also mentioned that former light heavyweight champion Randy Couture as a possible opponent in a 205-pound showdown, pending the outcome of Saturday nights main event.

    Claudale why are you so eager to see GSP murdered? He has absolutely nothing for Silva. Nothing. All this talk of taking the spider down and holding him there for 25 minutes is rubbish. Did you see what Matt Serra did to GSP with a bicep shot to his ear? And when the going got tough, GSP tapped out to strikes. I'm not saying that he hasn't improved his ear defense and that he hasn't grown mentally since then, (he had plenty of room to improve) but we're talking about the p 4 p greatest fighter on the planet, bar none. Silva is just way too big for GSP and if they were the same size, he's way too skilled.

    Please Claudale, let this silly talk of GSP/Silva die already. Give GSP a shot at Leban and lets see how he does. If he wins that, bump him up a level and put him in against rOSHOLT. But please, no more talk of the Spider Anderson Silva as a potential opponent.

    It would be fun to see, but GSP is no match for Silva

    LOL - Adolf, you really don't see GSP having a shot? I've been agreeing with you more and more as time goes on, but GSP is the mma king of building up riding time.

    Cleverly concealed way of calling him a staller. I agree Claudale, GSP is one of the best in the business at "controlling" the opponent form the top, but he has zero chance of beating Silva. ZERO!

    You see what happened to Maia vs Marquart? Square that, no better yet, cube it and that's what would happen to GSP, if he didn't tap out of fear before The Spider spun his web of violence on him. True story Claudale.

    Adolf, a few months ago, weren't you predicting that the Count would be the one to take down the Spider (and I don't mean Grove).

    Speaking of the count, no opponent rumored yet? They should have saved Baroni for him.

    ahahahahahahaha

    Yeah right Claudale. That wasn't me. With a clever game plan, I thought the Count could run away from Dan for 15 minutes and possibly out point him, (given the biased judging that he has been the beneficiary of). I never even remotely suggested that he has anything for the Spider.

    Lets feed GSP to Bisping if he really wants to try his luck out at 185. That would be a good one.

    Haha - but I think GSP wins that fight very easily.

    And I don't know how much sense it makes to have GSP fight MWs other than the Spider; the guy they want him to fight.

    I think GSP will lose because he won't be able to get himself up for all these MWs - he's so far ahead of them. I guess Koscheck is the biggest challenge since he at least took him down and won a round.

    Claudale the thing that people want to see is GSP challenged, not necessarily decapitated. Don't be so sure that he beats Bisping. The Count is a good boxer and he has excellent movement, (ability to run away). GSP is no Dan Hollywood Henderson and he isn't going to knock the count out, just isn't going to happen. So that leaves GSP trying to play the take down game and hold Bisping down for 15 minutes. Sure that's a possibility, but he also opens himself up for knees and long range punches. We know GSP hates getting hit and especially if he gets hit in the ear, (Serra/GSP I). This is a fight that GSP could be made to look very bad in. A win for the Count fools the average MMA fan into thinking that he's ready for Anderson and a win by GSP fools the average MMA fan into believing that GSP is ready for the spider. The UFC can't lose with this match up. Dana, make it happen.
