What I'd like to see next is GSP stay in his weight division and fight a guy like Hendricks, who has insane knock-out power and is a great wrestler. Next guy in the weight class for GSP. I fear Anderson Silva would be too much for GSP.
Silva won't have any weight advantage... they always fight at the same weight. You'd have to assume GSP gaining more muscle for a fight would result in him being stronger than Silva losing muscle to lose weight. The reach Silva would clearly have but GSP is in a class of his own wrestling wise and Sonnen handed Silva his ass with his wrestling. GSP could most definitely beat Silva using his wrestling.. no fighter in the world has been able to even remotely hindered GSP taking them down... Silva would be no different.
