Anderson did a pretty good job defending Hendo's take down in round 2 of their fight. he would have size advantage on gsp as well. that fight boils down to if GSP can get him and keep him down.
GSP's best strategy for the takedown would be to shoot in fast and furious, and even that comes with risks as he could eat a kick or knee. there's always the clinch takedown but as Dance stated, clinching with Anderson for any amount of time isn't the smartest thing in the world to do
i would expect Anderson to religiously train his takedown defense as that would be his primary concern against GSP.
i think right now i would favor Anderson to win, but wouldn't be completely shocked if GSP pulled it out

You are referring to Travis Lutter, who he finished from his back. Travis Lutter also had Anderson mounted in that fight.
When Anderson fought Marquardt, Marquardt was winning until Anderson got back up then finished him with strikes.
I'm not taking anything away from Silva. Silva's strength's are MT and striking. If GSP stood with Anderson it would be the dumbest thing imaginable.
Remember, GSP has taken down anyone and everyone he has ever fought at will.
And again, like I said. If GSP can get him down, he will win the fight. Only problem is, to get him down that would require clinching up with Anderson. And what happens when you clinch with Anderson? You get KTFO. So I don't know how that would play out.
Thanks to Greg Jackson, GSP always has stellar game plans.
It would be a very interesting match.

karo's being paid too much. UFC did 4mil+ from the gate, PPV #'s should be great as well. if they go over 900k buys (which it is expected) the UFC would be the first sporting event of any kind to register 3 consecutive events of 900k+ buys

Did you think he had a chance in hell?
Personally, I would like to thank MMA for paying for my $100 sushi dinner last night, my sake and my beer.
I also send out a special thanks to GSP for paying for an extra $100 worth of pizza and beer for the Superbowl tonight.
MMA has come down to a few elite fighters. I would love to see them fight each other.
Fedor against Lindland was interesting--even in spite of the weight difference.
I would like to see Fedor against GSP. If GSP could win that, he would be the greatest in the sport since an early Royce Gracie.
It is time for the UFC to go back to a tournament style--just for one night.
Since the purchase of Pride, they could put together 30 of the greatest fighters ever, in a round-robbin tournament like the old days.
One night, New Year's. The single greatest card in history. Winner advances.
