With GSP dominating another top contender in the ww division this past weekend, we are all stuck hearing about it. The superfight between GSP and A Silva. The argument for who would win has been discussed plenty. My take on the situation is that A Silva/ Shogun is the fight that should be made for 2011. Two guys that are stand up warriors. Not 2 brawlers that like to " stand and bang" but 2 skilled muay thai fighters with ground game. I think Silva transitions to 205 better than GSP transitions to 185. I think this is a much more fun and exciting fight than Silva /GSP. But my biggest argument is time. Silva is in the final stage of being a dominant champion IMO. He's far from done, but he won't be pound for pound in acouple more years. GSP is all but guaranteed a fight with jake shields in april. If his career at ww stops right there, he'll still want close to a year to put the weight on the right way. I'm not confident that the A Silva 1 1/2 to 2 years from now, is close to being the A Silva he is now. I'm a big gsp fan but I don't want him to beat a watered down A Silva. If he can beat him, do it while he's still on top. Silva fights in February. Shogun most likely fights in late Spring,early summer. Sets up great for an end of the year throwdown. What do you guys think? Which fight do you want?
Which superfight should happen?
