Re: GSP VS. Silva, GSP stand a chance?

I have to believe that GSP's superior game-planning keeps a Silva win from being a foregone conclusion.

The weight difference is an issue, but I don't think it's b/c GSP wouldn't be as relatively "strong". Silva doesn't necessarily push and muscle you around outside of the thai clinch. He's scary good b/c of his speed and timing. If GSP were to move up in weight--even a 180lb catchweight--he might sacrifice the speed needed to keep up with Silva.

All in all, I'd love to see those two mix it up.
