One thing is for certain, he won't be able to shoot from the outside like he did against Hardy. GSP is fast, but not that fast and he won't be able to setup the takedown while utilizing his reach and keeping a jab in Silva'a face.
Can he phsyically take Silva down? Probably so.
Can he stay awake long enough in a fight to score a takedown? It's up in the air.
Sounds like an exciting fight
