Thanks Adauth for joining this thread

So u are saying Jake will beat GSP? Coz the almost certain that GSP's next fight (if he beats Jake) is Anderson.

gsp vs silva may never happen. if gsp beats shields then the winner of penn vs fitch is going to be the no 1 contender and a gsp vs penn rematch could be money.

even though i dont necessarily like silva that much i think he'd dominate gsp. he has fought at 205 and won easily and he has completely dominated 185. striking advantage goes to silva, he's got stopping power in his hands (griffin, irvin, marquardt), elbows (had lutter in a triangle landing elbow after elbow till lutter sub'd due to strikes), knees (franklin twice, leben), and kicks(front kick to belfort), gsp doesnt have stopping power, he punched koz in the face for 25 minutes straight and couldnt knock him out. submission advantage goes to silva too, he sub'd henderson and sonnen and they were both powerful experienced wrestlers. gsp has his wrestling going for him but even sonnen on roids couldnt finish silva on the ground.

Thanks guys.

cipher6, it's announced at the press conference for the fight with GSP and Shields.

ballisticn8, thanks. I think I go with your breakdown. Except in choosing who to support, they both are so beloved.

Anderson is every inch a fighter that we all fight fans love. While GSP carries himself so well in manners and poise.

I def dont disagree that Anderson Silva isnt a fighter it just depends on what Anderson shows up to fight. His antics and refusal to engage fighters in several fights and play it safe dancing and running around the cage have put me off a little.

GSP, I dunno, he wins but four of his last five fights have been pick him up, take him down, hold him down and strike but not do any real damage, round ends, repeat until you win by decision.

Nobody has really found a way to get by either fighter yet but just the way the majority of their fights have gone have really put me off of wanting to watch either one... Only thing really exciting to happen from either in probably 8 combined fights between both fighters was Anderson folding Vitor with that front kick to the face.

Thoughts = wow, Shogun got worked worse than he did when he fought Forrest. I wonder if he was sick or injured because that didnt look anything like the normal Shogun. Jones just made a mockery of him, kinda like Frankie Edgar did to BJ Penn but Jones finished Shogun.

Jones was awesome! You just knew immediately that one was not going the distance!

What did you guys think of Jim Miller vs Kamal Shalorus? It was painful watching Miller trying to get that choke locked in...I was getting exhausted just watching it!!

Silva vs. GSP would not be a good fight, but if it happens Silva would most likely win.

Silva vs. Jones, now there would be a good fight.

Sadly yes it would take that long for a superfight to happen. Look how long it has taken Dana to admit to possibly doing a Silva/GSP fight.

Silva>GSP.......Bones Jones>Silva

Reasoning....Silva wins fights, and when he cares he does it when he wants, GSP wins fights in 5 rounds.....I'd go TKO all day

Jonny Jones is to fast and to lively for the Spider, he would catch Silva before Silva would catch him

IMO Diaz takes it, but with Daley's power I wouldn't count out an upset...

I hope Diaz gets KTFO, not that I really like Daley all that much... Diaz has already come out and said that he doesnt care if Daley gets the belt he wants to fight in the UFC.

on a TUF note, LETS GO TEAM DOS SANTOS!!!

i cant believe all of you think silva would beat GSP. There isn't a cold chance in hell for that. GSP is too well rounded. and he has the style advantage on the ground. if it is kept on the feet it will be a good fight.

Silva's ground skills are nothing to laugh at, he just hasnt had to use them. He knocks everyone out.

^^ this... the size difference alone gsp would never get in on him. reach advantage and kicks go to silva who knocks out people in weight classes 20 pounds heavier than him. we already know gsp has a weak chin (matt sera), with how deadly accurate silva's hands, elbows, knees, and legs are he would probably have a first round ko win.

GSP "had" a weak chin. yes silva fights people heavier but what about faster? GSP has great agility and can get inside quick to nullify Silva's strikes with quick and accurate takedowns. GSP is not going to stand there like Silva's other opponents let him hit him in the face. They need to make this fight happen. A LOT of people will be shocked.

No way......Silva would catch him.....like stated above the reach and pinpoint acc would be his demise......and also like stated above just because you havent seen anyone workout Spider on the ground doesn't mean he has no ground skill.....

Didn't say he doesn't have any ground skills. I said he was at a disadvantage. i've seen silva's pre-UFC fights. Many of them. And i've seen his ground skills. Im sure he has come along way since then but i strongly doubt he trains to handle and onslaught of GnP and furious pace which GSP works even from inside the guard. By bet is if it did make it to the ground Silva would do everything he could to get it back to the feet.

gsp shoots on silva, silva with his accuracy and timing knees gsp in the face for a knockout...

shields will probably lose, gsp says he's working his ground game but honestly has anyone ever seen gsp play into an opponents strong point? did he stand with thiago alves or dan hardy, nope, he took them to the ground and held them there for 25 minutes doing little to no damage. no way he's going to take shields to the ground and into shields strengths, he'll stay standing and jab from the outside like he did to koz. gsp just doesnt finish opponents anymore, last time he did was bj penn and that was like two and a half years ago or so.

as for silva vs jones, silva already said that wont happen.

Not all takedowns are done through shooting. Observe his judo, nullifying knees.

Personally look at how Sonnen held silva down for 4.75 rounds in their fight, you don't think someone like GSP could do the same? not to mention he is also a black belt in BJJ so I doubt he would get lazy like Sonnen and get stuck in a sub.

I'm kinda pissed im going most likely miss tomorrows GSP/Shields, Aldo/Hominck, Coture/Machida fights because ill be fighting in Portland Maine, I'm hoping ill be fighting early enough I can bail and drive the 2.5 hours home to watch it at a buddys house.

I don't know about that one. The guy seemed genuinely concerned about not being able to see. He kept mentioning it, but the look of worry on his face. After you defend your championship you're usually pretty happy, he was blinking the eye and testing his vision rather than smiling and celebrating. I think the injury was much more serious than everyone made it seem.

I completely understand why you see it that way.
Idk, I just expected a lot more. I definitely didn't think it would go the distance.
But in the end he won and that's all that really matters.

That GSP vs. Shields fight was bullshit! Not because GSP won, he definitly won every round 10-9, but because neither fighter did anything to finish the fight @ any time... If not for some other fights on the card, and you know which ones, I would say UFC 129 was a waste of time & money.

On that note, Silva has another fight before the end of the year, it is unlikely that GSP will fight again in 2011. If both fighters remain undefeted then they have agreed to fight at a catch weight of 180 lbs.

I think Silva would win. But none of us has seen GSP that big so it's really anyone's guess... That's why this fight, barring a loss by Silva, WILL happen early 2012.

The BJ fight over TWO YEARS AGO!! Or if you mean FINISH a fight (rather than 'not answering the bell'), you're looking at the Matt Serra fight where he regained the title.

Seriously, I really like GSP as a role model for the sport and he's a phenomenal athlete, but he needs to up his game. He fights to not lose, rather than to win, and seems petrified of his legacy should he lose. He just needs to look at both BJ and Randy to see that in MMA, you don't have to have an unbeaten record to be a legend.

Who would win between Anderson and GSP? That's a tough one...GSP will definitely want to take it to the ground and smother Andreson for 5 rounds, but Anderson will be looking for subs and strikes from the bottom should this happen, and he can easily finish the fight on the feet if he can stuff the takedown.

Jones would be the perfect style of fighter to match up against Anderson, as he wouldn't be afraid like it seems most of Anderson's challengers are, and he would really take the fight to him like Sonnen did, only he has the power and skill to finish it.

What does everyone think of this weekends UFC 130? I've got Rampage, Nelson, Struve, Alves and Santiago from the main card

I love it! I'd pick Anderson. GSP hasn't shown me anything his last few trips out, he hasn't even made the fights interesting in any way. Every time Anderson goes out he makes the highlight reel somehow. Much more dynamic of a striker, lethal on the ground, he demoralizes his opposition.

I wouldn't say thats true. Anderson had a string of fights that were HEAVILY criticized, right up to when Sonnen dominated him for 4 and a half rounds and Silva slipped in the triangle. Anderson chooses when he does and doesn't perform. Which is a sign of both how much more advanced he is than his competition(outside of Sonnen) and his lack of desire to finish fights(not recently) and simply retain his title.

I'd honestly go with GSP in the match up. As Sonnen has proven, Silva doesn't match up well with wrestlers.

i can agree with this but the problem is if sonnen couldnt finish Silva then GSP wont for sure, domination doesn't matter Silva needs one shot and has five rounds to take it......

Thats true, and GSP doesn't have the most proven of chins. That being said, I'd still go with GSO(I think). I'm interested to see Sonnen vs Silva 2, although I don't think Sonnen deserves the rematch.

I guess im in the minority here, but im not interested in Silva vs GSP. Silva would beat him every time: both are extremely skilled, but Anderson is the bigger man.

I know size isn't everything but when they're both as good as they are and equally matched, size matters.

Sonnen also got popped for roids after the Silva fight. Let's not forget about that.
