I personally think GSP would lose handily against Silva. Its a good in dream fight but I think Silva's punching power, size and elusiveness wouldnt make it close. Silva has no ill effects from dropping to his current weight, thats damn clear with the results. I wager he has zero problems, nor lose any power dropping another 6 pounds for simply weigh in purposes.

No matter what, GSP would likely enter with his true weight close to the catch weight while Silva likely enter the octagon well above it.

I would also add into the punching power differences of going up another class and having a life time of taking those type of punches.
